Instead of having to learn what to do at the time you need to make a decision, it might be better to read about someone else's trials, errors, and learning moments. Carey has beautifully broken down her experiences into 49 "rules" for people to consider along with her experiences with her parents that caused her to develop the rules in the first place.
I found this book to be an easy read and full of insights. My parents are getting to the age that some of these rules might come into play. I plan on sharing this book with my brother so that we can put together a "game plan" and be on the same pages with our decisions. Thank you, Pamela, for sharing your experiences in this great "survival guide!"
