I must begin with the fact that I was really intrigued by the name of the book as we are always used to hearing Golden rules that I had to check it out if these rules were indeed more valuable than gold!
20 diamond rules deals with pointers for an all-round physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological well-being! The format of the book is quite simple. The author stresses on a point in each chapter with an explanation, examples and ending them with quotes.
It is a good starting place for people who want to get into this genre and want everything in one place. Starting from not chasing material things to importance of exercising, proper nutrition and substance abuse, from stress management and importance of prioritization to the power of giving and holding your own opinions.
The book is very concise and a very fast read considering it is only 150 pages long. If you are new to the genre, I would recommend reading a few chapters a day rather than reading the whole thing in one go in order to stop, think and form your own opinions and put the author’s words in the context of your life to imbibe how that works for you.
Sadly, the book doesn’t have much to offer for people who are regular to this genre. For them it can be a good summary book for the days you really feel the need to be told these things again to pick you up! The compactness of the book is a big influence on the final rating of the book.
Rating: 3 stars
