Ignore all the negative comments you have heard about this book. Yes there are many references to the Bible but on the whole the context of reference to a book of common law albeit one handed down through generations by which we have lived for many years. If you are not religious, put your prejudices aside and think of it in this context and you will Benefit all the more from reading this manual life. I cannot speak highly enough about this book and Jordan Peterson is not only a great writer and a great mind but also a great narrator. Note to Jordan Peterson. Thank you for opening my eyes to the things that I knew and the things that I didn’t know.

The amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin's journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure through sport that will both entertain and inspire. It started out as a fun BBC Breakfast cycling stunt in 2012 and culminated in Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Team GB at the World Triathlon Championship in 2015.

While I cannot help but admire what Louise has achieved (and it is amazing), I am afraid that at the same time it did not inspire me as it has others or as I had hoped it would. I am sure Louise is a lovely person, but I found the writing too simplistic - sorry Louise, but well done
