This book seems light with 12 rules for a good life. But it's so packed with information that I had to hear it 2 times. And I am sure, that a third listen would reveal even more.
I am impressed with Jordan B Petersons book and I haven't ready/heard anything quite like it.

You are reading the word now right now. But what does that mean? What makes the ephemeral moment now so special? Its enigmatic character has bedeviled philosophers, priests, and modern-day physicists from Augustine to Einstein and beyond. Einstein showed that the flow of time is affected by both velocity and gravity, yet he despaired at his failure to explain the meaning of now. Equally puzzling: Why does time flow? Some physicists have given up trying to understand and call the flow of time an illusion.

Wery good in the first parts, but gets pseudo religious in the end. Thats a turn off, and the reasoning behind the theory of Now is just an opinion.
