There are four Rules
1. Give as little as possible.
2. Take as much as possible.
3. Always have an exit.
4. Enjoy your life to the fullest.
As with many things in life, the devil is in the details.
The Rules is a philosophy and self-inquiry text designed to help readers develop mental discipline and set life goals. It does this by way of guided readings and open-ended questions that facilitate the rational and systematic application of each Rule.
Put another way: The Rules is a book designed to help men survive and thrive in the West.
