One of the world’s most recognisable sci-fi stories, H. G. Wells’ The War of The Worlds established numerous conventions for the genre, including the threat of an invasive extraterrestrial species, space travel and intergalactic conflict, inspiring directors, gamers, producers and writers alike with its sobering story of struggle and survival. Marrying the suspense, drama and urgency of Wells’ original novel with Jeff Wayne’s rousing and flamboyant score, Audible’s new and exclusive dramatisation uses action, narration, original music and evocative sound design to immerse listeners in a world that’s as thrilling as it is desolate.

In this book, he provides 12 profound and practical principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticising others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today.

Jordan Peterson does a great job of distilling a lifetime's accumulation of knowledge into sixteen hours of engaging audio. I admire his presentation style, whereby he puts forward a proposition and explains the rationale behind it in faultlessly logical, methodical steps.

Contrary to other reviews, I did not think that the biblical references were 'preachy' or ran counter to what we should expect from a clinical psychologist trained in the scientific method. Peterson doesn't just quote biblical passages for the sake of it; they are referenced to reinforce his various propositions, along with anecdotes from his clinical practice, experience as a father, tales of friendship, and other life roles/experiences.

I am grateful for having had the opportunity to listen to this audio book and would definitely recommend others to do so.
