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.

    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. Bravo!

    My sadness is that I didn’t get this book when I was twenty. I can’t imagine a better book to read as one enters adulthood.
  • Very disappointing. Wish I could get a refund!

    This religion driven propaganda from a guy that refuses to understand that social norms change and and just like everything else has to evolve and change with time. He says that any social change to the community is “BAD”. Just another social conservative that is set in a very out of date traditions!
