Geared toward the graduate and others about to embark on new adventures, this upbeat, practical guide is based on the classic Hasbro game, invented in 1959. Thoughts, questions, advice, axioms, and anecdotes draw from the board game's spaces, such as Rent Apartment, Pay Day, and Mid-Life. (Pay Day advice: The trick is to treat your pay day not as a barometer of your success. Lao-Tzu said, 'When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.' Just don't let that contentedness keep you from asking for a raise when the time comes.) Author Lou Harry also expores the rich history of The Game of Life, now part of the Smithsonian's permanent collections, and its impact on pop culture.
