It's commonly believed that the words of wisdom below - titled "Rules Kids Won't Learn In School" - originated from Bill Gates (former CEO of Microsoft). Another view is that they can be credited to a number of authors. The list is actually the work of author Charles J Sykes, and was published in numerous newspapers. Life is not fair; get used.

      I just received his new book, set for release on Aug titled “50 Rules Kids Won’t Learn in School: Real-World Antidotes to Feel-Good Education.” Witty, acerbic, reality-grounded. It’s a great purchase for college-bound friends/family or parents with school-age kids. A sneak peek at Sykes’ sage advice: #1 Life is not fair. Rules Kids Won't Learn in School Rule #1. Life is not fair. Get used to it. The average teenager uses the phrase "it's not fair" times a day. You got it from your parents, who said it so often you decided they must be the most idealistic generation ever. When they started hearing it from their own kids, they realized Rule #1. Rule #2.

With our large selection of titles at % off the list price, we can help stretch your budget further by getting more books into more hands for less! Sykes expanded even further in his book “50 Rules Kids Won’t Learn in School” and included his original list, although the order was rearranged. In the preface, he dedicated space to addressing the claims of authorship, stating that, while he was flattered to be associated with the billionaire philanthropist, Gates was not the author.
