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.

Kept me alive

Since falling severely ill with a neurological disease everything has been taking from me. This book is what has kept me from taking my life. Words can't describe its salience. Thank you Dr. Peterson.

From Laventille With Love ,

‘Twas the perfect book to cap off my year of growth and learning.

I find it so interesting that I discovered Peterson and his work just when I began to apply some of the very things he presents in this book. This was truly a blessing that has already impacted my life profoundly. I managed to complete this in less than a week and almost cried when it ended. (I actually kinda did, tbh). Will be reading again with a few of my friends. I appreciate your sacrifice, Dr. Peterson!

Stellar material, I must say...

As time goes, there is more or less
Of what is and what is no longer
Conflict has stricken
Awestruck, As of late
Many are asking and/or thinking...
For whatever, that which
You seek, is right before the nose..
A point of Light.
Take a look,
In the other Direction
Towards thy, Mirror
12 Rules For Life
Is a point of Light.
With complete Respect and Love
Thank you, Jordan B. Peterson
Aw, this book.
A Game changer,
There’s the standard “Ripple” Effect
This will Cast a “Trickle” Effect
That which goes one in between the Ripple.
Thank you and your family!!
