"The Wall Street Journal's popular columnist Jason Gay delivers a hilarious and heartfelt guide to modern living. Four times a week, millions of men and women turn to Jason Gay's column in The Wall Street Journal. Why is Gay so celebrated? It starts with his amusing, fan's-eye-view of the sports world, which he loves but doesn't take too seriously. But his most celebrated features are his "Rules" columns, which provide untraditional, highly amusing but useful advice for navigating the minefields of everyday life. In this, his first book, Gay provides witty and wise advice on the Big Questions. Such as how to behave at work: "If you are excited about the company holiday party, this is likely an early-warning signal from the lighthouse to cancel, because you may fit the profile of the person who winds up kissing four co-workers, then stands on the coach at 2:00 a.m. railing against the company healthcare plan before passing out, then waking up twenty minutes later and demanding everyone take a taxi to Atlantic City for breakfast." Gay makes the case that it is not the grand accomplishments like climbing Mt. Everest (which, as he points out, is expensive and stressful) that make life sweet but conquering the small everyday challenges, like putting pants on before 2:00 p.m. on a Saturday. Little Victories is a life guide for people who hate life guides. Whether the subject is rules for raising the perfect child without infuriating all of your friends, rules for how to be cool (related: Why do you want to be cool?) or rules of thumb to tell the difference between real depression and just eating five cupcakes in a row, Gay's essays--whimsical, practical, and occasionally poignant--will make you laugh and then think, "You know, he's kind of right.""--… (lisätietoja)

I don't like sports, and I love this sportswriter. And really, this book has very little to do with sports. ( )

Several segments in this book had me laughing out loud. My husband was constantly asking me why I was laughing. I loved certain parts of the book that I would read hem out loud to whomever was next to me at the time. Overall great message abut celebrating the little victories in life and appreciating what you have and the time you are given. ( )

Rules?! I don't need no stinkin' rules...ok...maybe I do need more funny, insightful, sometimes ridiculous (but strangely still very smart) rules from Jason Gay.

I tend to not pay attention to by-lines on articles and I rarely read anything sports related, so I wasn't sure about reading something from a sports columnist I'd never heard of. But this book is fantastic. Several times while reading, I would text/call/talk to Jesse about how HE needed to read this book. There were several passages I highlighted -- like about being "cool" (do you KNOW how many "cool" parents I follow on Instagram. It's ridiculous because they're parents. They REALLY AREN'T COOL!). I have SO much embarrassing music on my phone and I'm no longer going to be ashamed of how many times I listen to "Bye Bye Bye" thanks to this book. He also discusses comments on the Internet and how he handles them. ( )

Downright funny and honest advice for a good life, from ties to parents to remembering to wear pants, without biting snark so you can enjoy this guilt-free. Highly recommended. Review copy received from the publisher via NetGalley.com. (136) ( )
