The rules and strategies included in The Boston Rob Rulebook are ones I’ve compiled throughout my life thus far, growing up in a strong, loving, Italian family, in a no-nonsense, straightforward, loyal city like Boston. I came up with and collected these rules during my time growing up, as a student, working in construction, playing and coaching sports, as a TV personality, being a competitive poker player, being a diehard fan of the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, and Bruins, traveling the world and setting foot on all seven continents, and, of course, becoming a father and having a family of my own.
Every one of these rules has played an important part in my life and has helped me get to where I am today. Together they’ve served as a foundation in my successes and also as a point-of-reference through different setbacks in my life.
Just for fun I’ve also thrown in a couple not-so-serious rules because, let’s face it, you should never take yourself too seriously.
Of course I understand that each person is unique and that different situations call for different ways of thinking and acting; a rule that applies in one situation may not apply in another. You have to take them with a grain of salt. But for the most part these guidelines have helped me achieve many of my life’s goals and find creative ways out of tricky situations. And I’m confident they can do the same for you.
No matter what island you find yourself on.
