In this unique, profoundly inspirational memoir, Divorce Court star Judge Lynn Toler shares her mother's wisdom for learning to conquer anger and become immune to insult. Toler credits her mother's "rules" for life - a life that saw her grow up the daughter of a poor teen mother and endure a husband who suffered mental illness and alcoholism - with providing the grounding for her own success and happiness. Toler shows how the mindset of "a black woman who knew how to make things work" taught her the power of knowing how to manage one's emotional business-lessons that this book offers in wrenching stories written in spare and graceful prose. My Mother's Rules is an unforgettable book that will captivate readers with its illustrations of how to rise above the most difficult circumstances and find peace and success in life.

AWSOME BOOK.A STORY I WILL NEVER FORGET.THE NARATION PERFECT.JUDGE TOLER IS MY MENTOR.I'VE LISTENED TO HER BOOK 3 TIMES.SUCH GREAT ADVICE,WHAT A SMART MOTHER.I ONLY WISH I COULD MEET JUDGE TOLER.IVE GOT QUESTIONS ONLY SHE CAN ANSWER.5STAR ALL THE WAY.
I loved the story Judge Lynn shares in her book. After hearing so many audiobooks, I wish the production could have been less rushed. Sometimes you needed to take a breath after her wisdom before jumping right into the next thing. Again not a critique on Judge Lynn at all. I'm going to listen again and write the rules out (or just buy a copy of the book).
Enjoyed listening to the book. Selected the audio version because I wanted to hear her tone as she relayed lessons learned. I wished I had a mother as thoughtful and supportive as Toler's mother. Grateful that she shared her story, connected the dots, and continues to prosper in her life. Going to pass book along to my daughter and recommend to friends.
The Honorable Judge Lynn whom I Truly Respect and Highly Admire has Gifted The World with her Mother's Wisdom. This Element of Pure Brilliance of Rules on how to Manage your Emotions in challenging situations. The Most Precious Gift of Love is My Mother's Rules. I Highly Recommend this Book to All!!!
Thank you, Judge Lynn and Most of All Your Mother of Pure Wisdom!!!
