Audio Book Summary



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.

    Very moving. Forced me to examine my life and strategize on how to become a better person. First Jordan Peterson book, and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Plus I can refer to this one again and again to get back on track.

    This book was a disappointment. Tends to veer significantly off topic and is very heavy on religious preaching and biblical references.

    I loved the book, it resonated with me, leaving plenty notes which I’ve transcribed on a word document for future revisiting . I’m not a native speaker, and I’m also not well lectured on the Bible stories, so I found it a bit hard to follow those parts, but the personal stories made up for that; I loved those , I can tell Peterson is trying his best to make these rules stick; in school , I find most of the teachers that suck or that sucked fail to provide students with useful analogies or real life applications or experiences that give the concept a dimension, so that words become something more than abstract containers .

    I like Peterson I’ve probably watched hundreds of hours now of him on different platforms. So I thought the book would be something special, however in my opinion if you’ve heard one or two of Peterson’s interviews you’ve kind of heard it all. The book just goes on and on about human behavior but kind of in that 48 laws of power way where you’re like duhh that’s obvious. But maybe I’m just burnt out with the guys message. I am not hating on the guys book. But yeah it was a little mundane.
