When Boston Rob Mariano appeared on the Survivor: Caramoan — Fans Vs. Favorites live reunion show, we were all asking the same question: Was the rulebook he gave Phillip Sheppard the real deal? Turns out, it actually is. “The Boston Rob Rulebook: Strategies For Life” is a 75-page book that offers up various tips and advice, some of which include: know who you are, be a risk taker, nobody likes a crybaby, zip it, get organized and family comes first, always. Boston Rob says his motivation for writing the book came after watching Phillip create the “BR Rules” while competing on Survivor: Caramoan — Fans Vs. Favorites. I had the chance to chat with the Survivor: Redemption Island champ on the red carpet of the Survivor: Caramoan finale in which he gushed about the life lessons that fill his book. He also explained why he thinks Cochran was a deserving winner, discusses that he believes he could win the game again and revealed where he was the day of the fatal Boston Marathon explosions.

To give you some idea as to what the book is all about, its reverse side states: “Boston Rob Mariano gained notoriety from his exploits on the hit CBS reality show ‘Suvivor.’ The four-time player also gained a great deal of respect for his physical capabilities, social awareness, and his strategic, outside-the-box way of thinking. Now Mariano has compiled a list of personal life lessons in his first book, ‘The Boston Rob Rulebook: Strategies For Life.’ Through his signature wit and no-nonsense personality, Mariano shares some of the wisdom he’s gained over the years, both growing up in Boston and through his experiences and adventures as a reality TV personality, and how he’s applied it to his life to find success and fulfillment. The result is a collection of solid, practical, straight-forward advice delivered with Mariano’s distinctive voice and perspective.”
