12 Rules For Life

An Antidote to Chaos


Jordan B. Peterson

In 12 Rules for Life, Peterson dives head first into the deep thoughts and actions of everyday life. Pulling from his own life experiences from childhood, as a student, psychologist, professor of psychology, husband, father, and more, he navigates through topics from posture to parenting and self-confidence to humility. Every aspect of life is dissected with the consistent tone being: how to unbiasedly evaluate your current standing and to push yourself forward from your static or regressing state. Most chapters start on the surface; thoughts and ideas you have seen, considered, and contemplated. But then, he unfolds each layer of thought to a depth you unknowingly existed, to an almost unbearable extent. Take your time with this one, much can be learned and applied!
12 Rules For Life
What does everyone in the modern world need to know?

Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research.

Humorous, surprising and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street.

What does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and about success in life? Why did ancient Egyptians worship the capacity to pay careful attention as the highest of gods? What dreadful paths do people tread when they become resentful, arrogant and vengeful?

Dr. Peterson journeys broadly, discussing discipline, freedom, adventure and responsibility, distilling the world's wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life. 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science, faith and human nature, while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its readers.
