Reacher's Rules, Life Lessons from Jack Reacher

Reacher's Rules: Life Lessons from Jack Reacher
*Please note this is not a novel, but a companion book for Reacher fans*. Reacher's own rules for life are brought together in this irresistible collection of quotes, life lessons and wisdom from the man himself. As every Reacher fan knows, you don't have to break the rules if you make the rules. If you want to survive in this world nothing else matters. Rule 1. When in doubt, drink coffee. Rule 2. Never volunteer for anything. Rule 3. Don't break the furniture. Rule 4. Only one woman at a time. Rule 5. Show them what they're messing with. 'I don't want to put the world to rights, I just don't like people who put the world to wrongs.' 'Either you'll walk out of here yourself, or you'll be carried out in a bucket.' 'I'm not scared of anybody...But I certainly preferred it when he was dead.' If you've read the books, you'll love this. If you haven't read the books, what are you waiting for?

I have only recently become a fan of Jack Reacher and have enjoyed reading some of the more recent releases and am planning on reading the back catalogue very soon. Although I have only read a couple of the books, I have already built up my own mental image of Reacher and also know that Reacher's way of life is to live by his own rules, not those decided by others. This book is like a manual or handbook on Reacher's life.

The book is split into numerous very short chapters on many different areas on his life - some chapters could be useful in everyday life - Fighting tips, how to be prepared and a medley of military acronyms, where as others  maybe not, codes used by the military police and the science behind burning down a building.

This book would be a great gift for any Jack Reacher fan - with the first Jack Reacher film being in cinemas now, there will be many new fans of Lee Child's character and this is a great glimpse into his life.

Thank you to the publishers, Bantam Press for sending me the book to review.
