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.

Say what?!?1 star

This book rambles on and on with no cohesive thought. I could not make it past 2nd chapter. So disappointed15

Great storyteller, speaker, and thinker!5 star

This book was an amazing opportunity to look into the mind and work of Dr. Peterson who has been consulted by many organizations worldwide, as well as a profound clinical psychologist from what I’ve seen/been told. This book helps the reader to use ancient stories told, and shifts your perspective on those stories to point out the moral or the physiological impacts that may have been embed in the media and otherwise overlooked.55

Wow5 star

I'm at a loss of words to describe the awesomeness of this book. Extremely deep and complicated ideas throughout yet Jordan Peterson (the author) explains them in a graceful and simple manner. Not a book for the faint of heart or those inflexible to change. Thank you Jordan for sharing your reflections and rules through your book the world is closer to Heaven thanks to it.55
