The Platinum Rule The Platinum rule is a book that takes the other side of our most cherished sayings and proverbs. It is the result of years of reading and recording words of wisdom from the ages, and thinking about other ways of looking at the issue. In some cases the contrarian quotes offers more empowerment for one. Oftentimes it does not serve to follow the wisdom of a proverb when a contrary action is needed. The most compelling example is the platinum rule being more empowering under certain circumstances than the Golden Rule. It is often better to "do unto to others what they would have you do unto them" This rule takes into account that we have different cultures and different beliefs, and honors that. A must book for anyone who is interested in broadening his/her perspective

I have always loved quotes, and this book is a great collection of them. I have already found several to use for various things. If I still passed notes I would write one at the top of each letter, but email has overtaken the written word :( Read full review

About the author (2006)

Carl "Tuchy" Palmieri was born in 1942 in an old mansion belonging to the former mill owner of the factory where his father worked. His family was one of six related families that occupied the mansion. The second son of Italian immigrants, he grew up in Westport, Connecticut. After receiving a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Bridgeport he began his career marketing and installing accounting computers for the Burroughs Corporation. Twenty-one years later he started his own computer business in 1987. Today Carl lives with his wife Susan in Fairfield, Connecticut. He has three children, two stepchildren, and 12 grandchildren. His nickname, Tuchy, comes from having been one of three Carls in his family. There was a "Big Carl," a "Carl the Twin," and "Carluch," which meant "Little Carl." "Carluch" evolved into "Carlatuch," "Tuch," and finally, "Tuchy.
