Playing By The Rule underscores the author's belief in the supremacy of God. Everything happens according to the will of Chi. Whenever people play by Chi's laws, they win. However, winning does not mean that everything is going to be easy; there is always going to be a glitch here and there, yet the ultimate end portrays the handwork of God, which people of faith know as miracle. Nwankwo recreates his childhood school days like a piece of children's stories that happened yesterday. He makes early childhood schooling look like nothing but fun. Playing By The Rule provides invaluable moral guides for the young; it is a teaching tool for parents.
