Definitely worth buying
The reviews claiming misogyny are short sighted and misandrist at best the rules,stories and anecdotes can apply to both genders. This book is worth digesting to anyone looking for a guide to start improving there life and those around them
Would give 6 stars if I could
Of course you’re going to get misandrists and fedora-wearing atheists giving this 1 star.
The former see misogyny everywhere because they look for it, and the latter have about as much depth as a puddle. What they fail to see in this book is Jordan’s references to biblical mythology are carefully used to hammer home the points he’s making. These stories are thousands of years old, and he is right to draw the connection between the messages in these stories and our own modern lives. He isn’t telling you to become a devout Christian, he’s giving you context for these stories that you can apply to your own life.
Don’t listen to the ignorant people who are too full of themselves to actually heed the advice in this book. Its an excellent read as long as you remain unbiased and open minded.
Maybe Kathy Newman is creating all these accounts that leave NPC review?
So much respect for Dr Jordan Peterson for writing this book. It really has changed my life. Keep doing what you’re doing. I’ve read this book 3 times. It’s so good.
Reading this book brought me inspiration, motivation and belief in what I’m capable of and hope in the world. My favourite book of 2020.
If you’ve not read this book, read it! One word wow!
