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.

It's hard to coherently summarize my thoughts about this book, because I was left with so many emotions after reading it. The rules go over many subjects that we might deem as common sense, but are essential reminders for those hard times where we are most likely to forget them, or forget to hold fast to them. JP does tend to make a lot of allusions to the Bible, especially in the first half of the book -- it's evident he's studied it quite a bit, and soundly applies it to the struggles of humanity, but as a non-religious person I found the stories distracting at times. Because of the lack of variety of source material, I very nearly gave up by Chapter 6 or so. I'm glad I didn't.

As a rule, I look for real-world examples when it comes to nonfiction / self-help books, and even though there weren't as many in the first few chapters, the second half more than made up for it. Peterson's expertise in psychology and the other social sciences really shone through -- from his razor-sharp analysis of our social/political origins, to how best to navigate the great burdens of life in the healthiest psychological way. As anecdotal evidence, the struggles he and his family experienced, particularly with their daughter's serious and prolonged illness, were heartbreaking to read. But at the same time, I gained so much respect for their strength and resilience - qualities we don't see enough of today. That reaffirmed all the things he was trying to get across in this book, and by the end I realized the answers were all there in front of me. All I had to do was take the first step, a little wiser and more humble than before. ( )

This book is badly written and misguided. Read something else if you can. ( )

Self-aggrandising pseudobabble at best. When you take the time to analyse what’s being said, it’s surprising how little content there is per page, and the content there is, is downright bad in many cases, essentially advising people to live lives in quiet isolation. ( )

Aclamado psicólogo clínico, Jordan Peterson tem influenciado a compreensão moderna sobre a personalidade e, agora, se transformou em um dos pensadores públicos mais populares do mundo, com suas palestras sobre tópicos que variam da bíblia, às relações amorosas e à mitologia, atraindo dezenas de milhões de espectadores. Em uma era de mudanças sem precedentes e polarização da política, sua mensagem franca e revigorante sobre o valor da responsabilidade individual e da sabedoria ancestral tem ecoado em todos os cantos do mundo. Neste livro, ele oferece doze princípios profundos e práticos sobre como viver uma vida com significado. A partir de exemplos vívidos de sua prática clínica e vida pessoal, bem como de lições extraídas das histórias e mitos mais antigos da humanidade, 12 Regras para a Vida oferece um antídoto para o caos em nossas vidas: verdades eternas aplicadas aos nossos problemas modernos. “Um dos pensadores mais importantes a surgir no cenário mundial em muitos anos.”

Jordan Peterson may be the only clinical psychologist who believes that psychology is subordinate to philosophy and the one thing that psychology and philosophy both genuflect before is story. Story, or myth, predates religion and is, in fact, as old as language itself.

In his earlier book, Maps of Meaning: The Architecture of Belief, Peterson connects the stories we share with our earliest ancestors with modern knowledge of behavior and the mind. It’s a textbook for his popular University of Toronto courses.

The one-time dish washer and mill worker spent nearly 20 years at the University before garnering international attention. In September 2016, Peterson released a couple of videos opposing an amendment to the Canadian Human Rights Act which he contended could send someone to jail for refusing to use a made-up gender identity pronoun. Peterson went on to testify before the Canadian Senate, and has emerged as a foremost critic of postmodernism on North American campuses.

Postmodernism is the “new skin of communism,” In Peterson’s view. The ideology has been so thoroughly discredited from an economic standpoint that those who still advocate for it, for either political or emotional reasons, have resorted to attacking the very process in which something can be discredited—reason and debate. At the same time they have worked to change the face of oppression away from those living in poverty toward individuals who don’t look or act like those who hold most of the positions of power and authority in Western society.

Peterson’s classroom is now the entire globe. Millions are watching his lectures and other videos on YouTube. For this new and greater audience, a more accessible, more affordable compendium than Maps of Meaning was called for.

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos is more affordable for sure, but only slightly more accessible. Part self-help book, part memoir, part Maps for the masses, it’s organized sprawlingly. Rule 2 (Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping), for example, opens with a discussion of biblical texts only addressing the lesson at hand at the very end.
