Book Review
Tuchy's Law and Other Contrarian Quotes To Help You In Life's Journey

By Tuchy Palmieri

Reviewed by

The book title properly describes this book; it is a book of quotes to help you in life's journey. It contains many words of wisdom that serve to remind us to look at the positive side of life. Some of these quotes have been around for many years; you will read familiar words. And, you will find good words of advice from not only the author but from some very famous people, and from the not so famous people. But, the one thing all the contributors have done is that they have shared their experiences in the form of quotes.

Some of our favorite quotes from the book are:
"We are not creatures of circumstance; we are creators of circumstance."

"It is easier to clean things up as they pop up rather than as they pile up." Don Hanson

"Wisdom come more from living than from studying."

"Worry is like a rocking chair - it gets you nowhere."

"It is better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing perfectly."

"Arms are for hugging."

"If you are losing a tug-of-war with a tiger, give him the rope before he gets to your arm. You can always buy a new rope."

"Luck is the ability to appreciate an opportunity."

"There is a time to let things happen and a time to make things happen."

"Pressure makes diamonds."

"Success is getting up just one more time than you fall down."

"Wisdom comes more from living than from studying."

"How we see life is a matter of choice."

"Never complain about getting old; many people never get a chance."


It is a book that makes a great present for any occasion and will be enjoyed by all age groups, young and old. It will make a great addition to any library. It is the type of book that you can pick up and read for a short period of time, or you can easily read the book from front to back in a short period of time. Using the book for reflection, and for journal writing is another great use. We recommend this book; for sure it will give you food for thought! It is available at Amazon.com

The Platinum Rule and Other Contrarian Sayings
The First 60 Years

By Tuchy Palmieri

Reviewed by Catherine Pulsifer

A compact 46 page book containing 522 quotes on all aspects of life. For sure you will find quotes that you can relate to, others that will make you smile, but all of them contain words of wisdom in them.

A great book to leave sitting out for others to read, one which you can pick up and start reading on any page, or you can read from start to finish. But, in my opinion, the most important aspect of this book is not so much how fast you read it, but how you reflect and interpret the quotes and sayings in the book.

Here are only a few of my favorite quotes from the book:

"Challenges and opportunities go hand in hand."

"On the highway of life you must often change directions to get where you are going."

"In every success there is failure."

"Speech whispers; action roars."

"If at first you don't succeed you are normal."

"What you see determines how you feel and how you feel determines what you see."


A wonderful book to give to someone who has everything, or someone who is starting a new career, or new studies, and a book that will be cherished for years to come. The book can be purchased at Amazon.com.

Obama In His Own Words - Pre-election The words Barack Obama gave us before and during his campaign moved, inspired, and touched many of us.

He comes to the presidency with one of the highest approval ratings of our modern presidents. May he serve us well.
