8 Simple Rules is a warm and funny look at life with teenagers, a survival guide written by a man who isn't sure he's actually surviving. A New York Times bestseller, the book has proven popular for parents, teenagers, and former teenagers everywhere. It was the inspiration for the ABC show 8 Simple Rules, starring the late John Ritter. Though John’s tragic death ultimately spelled the end of the series, the show still plays in 30 markets world-wide and is often on cable networks in the USA.
