Books, especially this time of year are my absolute guilty pleasure. I hold my hands up to being a complete book worm but what I love more is finding something that I can really sink my teeth into.

A book you don’t want to put down is always a good sign isn’t it and I have just finished one of these. The Golden Rule by Robin Cade.

At a first glance, the cover didn’t jump out at me but i am always a ‘read the back before you judge’ kind of girl and it is definitely true what they say, don’t judge a book by it’s cover.

The book in a nutshell explores the humanist moral idea of treating others fairly and quite rightly so!, but in this day and age, it really doesn’t come natural to some.

Kind gestures now almost seem like they should be rewarded if they are done, but in this book Robin talks about the feelings the human race use to feel when giving. 

Treating others how you wish to be treated yourself really shouldn’t be to much to ask of us. The Golden Rule enables us to live together as a community that cares and shares. The principle helps them cope with problems and their happiness and also their quality of life.

It’s like Christmas isn’t it, you give, and feel that warm feeling of happiness because the person you have given to is feeling joy.

Simple tasks in your day can make such a difference, a small gesture like a smile on your way to work can make the world of difference to that persons morning.

The Golden Rule works because it’s simple and it’s purely taking things back to basic. 

I think it would make a fantastic Christmas present this year. You can purchase it on here The Golden Rule - Robin Cade 


  1. Sounds like a really good book and something I think a lot of people need to learn about for kindless and treating others well. I will admit I am very bad for judging books by their covers x

  2. I appreciate the Golden Rule. I try to abide by that always too.

  3. I used to read a lot, but nowadays I don't read that much anymore except for blog post. I love to read those
