"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."--… (mere)

I found this book to be a conglomeration of many things I love: art, psychology, history, religion, and social science. So I'm probably biased in my rating. The intro wasn't as interesting as the rest. Skip it and save yourself the time.

I think Peterson really does hit most of his nails on the head. The last section seemed to take forever to get to what I already knew and you may, at times, find yourself wondering about the seemingly random connections, but I think it works.

Some have complained about his old- fashioned approach to men... but, in my research, the data backs him up. He does get a little less professional towards the end (harsh might be the right word), and I wish it had been smoothed out a bit before printing. But I really did like the mix-up of content and subjects so, therefore, I stand by my biased 5 stars. ( )

Dropped it on Rule 3, too much unnecessary and time-consuming verbosity throughout the book, and use of unmeaningful metaphors from Bible and made up stories that do not really justify the content.

The first 3 chapters are also some basic self-help ideas that can be found on 5 minute articles around the internet instead of a one hour read on a book. ( )

Since gallons of ink have been spilled reviewing this book, I won't belabour the obvious or test anyone's patience with a detailed review—there are far better specimens of that everywhere. Intelligently written Jungian self-help at its finest. There is quite a bit of overlap and shared philosophy with popular writers like Joseph Campbell ("The Hero with a Thousand Faces"). As a parent, of particular interest to me was Rule #5 ('Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them.') It occurs to me that Peterson's advice on child-rearing is qualitatively better than 90% of all parenting advice books. That chapter alone, to me, was worth the price of the book. ( )

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.
