What IS the right way to hang toilet paper, what is the right way to fold towels, Is is OK to wear socks with sandals?
The Book of Rules is a parody life manual that covers it all from the rules about driving and shopping to the best
way to act around your co-workers and friends.

The Book of Rules is available in bookstores now, and The Book of Rules for relationships is currently under development.

And it is all done with humor.

The Story of a Box is now available

The Story of a Box is a children's book which deals with the difficult
issues we all face during adolescence. We are all quite different in
our own way. In our metamorphosis into adulthood, we have all coped
with bullies, worked to identify and build our own identity, and searched
to find our own way in life. The Story of a Box addresses many of those
complex issues in a pure and simplistic manner.

In fact, this book was initially written by Joshua Belter at the age of 10.

Which way should the toilet paper be dispensed from the roll? Who goes first
at an intersection in a grocery store? What is the proper placement of ketchup
on a plate? When is it appropriate to dress your pet in clothes that match your
own? If you've ever wondered about the answers to these vital questions, this is
the book for you. Consult The Book of Rules to identify acceptable practices and
procedures for any social situation you may encounter in your everyday life.
With this book, you will learn:

    * how and when to tell someone they have bad breath
    * regulations on singing aloud with the car radio
    * what excessive hair twirling indicates
    * when power naps should be taken at work
    * how to terminate a too-long text message conversation
    * how to deter people who want to 'taste' your food
    * when it is appropriate to look in a friend's medicine cabinet, and much, much more.

Many everyday actions-while not illegal or immoral-are generally considered improper. With this book,
you will never again be considered an uncivilized, clueless boor.
