Jordan Peterson changed my life for the better without a doubt with this book if you are debating on buying stop the insanity and pay the money!!!
This is one of the most encouraging and enlightening books I’ve ever read. Johnson offers advise and insight on how to deal with life’s most trivial obstacles. I wish every man and women would read this. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Really?? This guy is an idiot.
Thought provoking book that turns a lot of conventional thinking upside down. Doesn’t necessarily mean I agree with everything in here, but I must admit was very engaged reading through the book.
Several of his rules revolved around Christian teaching. Peterson’s writings reflect a psychological analysis behind these rules which is incredibly fascinating to read how Christian teachings reflect in society.
Expect to have your thinking challenged, and gain a deeper understanding of human interactions!
Dr. Peterson is a phenomenal communicator with immense credibility from decades as a clinical psychologist. Nothing he says is outrageous or even radical. He essentially empowers the individual with advice and confidence born from common sense. Certain “journalists” who have tried to misrepresent Peterson as some kind of right-wing, callous monster are the real villains of this story. I highly recommend reading, watching, or listening for yourself and making your own judgements.
For real just read it. The new bible
Such a slow build on the topic.
This will go down as one of the greatest books of my lifetime.
As insightful and readable as this book is, both whimsical and well-developed it nevertheless makes two great metaphysical assumptions which are not sufficiently explored: first, that the “yin and yang” philosophy or religion of Taoism is true, second, that it is the fundamental “rule” which governs all of biology and evolution. To his credit the author makes many interesting correlations between that philosophy and various naturalistic observations, but like all extreme naturalism and religion it ends at the fundamental assumptions about reality that it makes which are not explicitly examined on a philosophical level. The result is a kind of naturalistic spiritism, a guru imparting his self-help wisdom, rather than a detached academic survey of research and data, though much data is integrated into the belief system itself.
Overall it is an enjoyable and thought-provoking read, but the dictum of Hume lingers ever in the background, never explicitly addressed as a counter-argument, namely that it is logically improper and inconsistent to derive an “ought” from “is.”
I loved it!
Boy, is it wordy !
I have an inner mantra that I start meditation with. I go through 24 life values. They occasionally are refined as nothing is so ordered that it can’t improve. They relate to levels in time and space within my being: spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical.
When my cat Yoda passed, I was devastated. I sat in a chair and closed my eyes. I was empty except for a vision of my values which held me together. It was a complete surprise.
Your 12 Rules seem much like my values.
I loved your book. It gave me some introspective motion with more inner light.
