The companion volume to 12 Rules for Life offers further guidance on the perilous path of modern life.
In 12 Rules for Life, clinical psychologist and celebrated professor at Harvard and the University of Toronto Dr. Jordan B. Peterson helped millions of readers impose order on the chaos of their lives. Now, in this bold sequel, Peterson delivers twelve more lifesaving principles for resisting the exhausting toll that our desire to order the world inevitably takes.
In a time when the human will increasingly imposes itself over every sphere of life—from our social structures to our emotional states—Peterson warns that too much security is dangerous. What’s more, he offers strategies for overcoming the cultural, scientific, and psychological forces causing us to tend toward tyranny, and teaches us how to rely instead on our instinct to find meaning and purpose, even—and especially—when we find ourselves powerless.
While chaos, in excess, threatens us with instability and anxiety, unchecked order can petrify us into submission. Beyond Order provides a call to balance these two fundamental principles of reality itself, and guides us along the straight and narrow path that divides them.
This book is even better than the last one!
This just happened to be exactly what I needed... this book is great for anyone looking to better themselves, but more importantly, how to best deal with the downside to too much order, from learning how to work on your relationships, to finding beauty again in life.
Good read but
It didn’t hit me the way the first book did. The first book changed my life and I’ve since become an avid viewer of Dr. Peterson’s n YouTube. Much of the content in this second book of his can be found in his lectures. I enjoyed reading this, but there wasn’t much that was new here for me.
Yes, yes and yes.
This is an amazing book. Was not aware of this guy until I read a sample of the book and bought it. I just finished chpater 6 and find the insights and thoguhts of Peterson very helpful.
