That list became Life's Little Instruction Book™, the phenomenal book that has sold more than five million copies in less than two years and has been translated into 13 languages. "But within a few days of presenting Adam with Life's Little Instruction Book™," says Brown, "I began to think of many other entries I wished I had included.
