"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."--… (altro)

Bashkoju kujt ka gjetur tashmë frymëzim dhe udhërrëfim te mësimet e dr. Peterson-it. Zbulo në këtë libër me fuqi të pazakontë rregullat sa të thjeshta aq edhe të thella për të ftilluar vetveten, për të vënë shtëpinë në rregull dhe për të mbarësuar botën duke mbarësuar më së pari veten.

Too much me, myself & I. I did this, I did that. And anything that is done doesn't lead anywhere.
Reading experience was like driving in roaring car without transmission gears and steering wheel.
Without any power and any real direction.
Start and stop at same place. ( )

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos

Why I picked this book up: I first hear of this author when he was getting backlash in Canada with freedom of speech and their demand to call a biological male “her or she” and he interacted with Ben Shapiro, another man that is very smart and conservative that I admire. I watched a lot of YouTubes with Jordan Peterson, PhD and I wanted to read one of his books so I picked it up.

Thoughts: I do not know this author, Dr. Peterson, and am commenting on what I know about him which is not a lot. Peterson is intelligent, well read, is a Psychologist, he has interesting stories from his upbringing in the cold and dark frontier in Canada, he talks with some humor, seems like a guy I could hang out with, loves his wife, has a Christian background and talks a lot in each chapter. I did not take this book as a self help book. It seemed like we were hanging out and chopping it up just talking. This book is is a 2018 self-help book by Canadian clinical psychologist and psychology professor Jordan Peterson. It provides life advice through essays in abstract ethical principles, psychology, mythology, religion, and personal anecdotes.

Why I finished this read: I pretty much liked the 12 topics he narrowed down and wanted to get all I could spending my rime reading this book. I also really liked the second chapter as it hit home with my struggling living with multiple sclerosis and did not want to miss any chapters if there was good like in chapter two.

I gave this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. ( )

While the rules presented are definitely worthwhile discussing, and while I find myself agreeing with them, I can't help but feel the stories used to illustrate the rules wander too far from the intended message.

While it is useful, and necessary, to discuss the effects of gender roles on personality, as well as parental (and environmental) influences on ego, at times it felt more like a commentary on society than a book intended to help me overcome my daily struggles. ( )

An engaging book on some of life's lessons laid as 12 'rules'. Most of it is quite perceptive, but there is a tendency to prolixity and a certain denseness and dryness in the discourse that often lets the reader's attention wander. The frequent recourse to the somewhat gory stories of the Old Testament in the initial chapters somewhat detracts from its message: the Western psyche, in my assessment, has been too deeply seared by the inhuman demands made by its God, such as the wandering in the desert, the travails of Cain and the curse on his offspring (in some accounts, this curse was used to justify ill-treatment of Blacks in the age of slavery), the sacrifice of his son demanded of Abraham, mirrored later on by the sacrifice of God's own Son on the cross, and so on. The best parts are the last two chapters, where the author describes his own pain at his daughter's suffering from childhood arthritis, and the thoughts of compassion he would like to radiate into the world. A useful book for life guidance. ( )

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.
