What are the most valuable things that everyone should know? Acclaimed clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson has influenced the modern understanding of personality, and now he has become one of the world's most popular public thinkers.

I can’t fault Jordan’s delivery and the points he is making, however all to frequently in this book he becomes a preacher selling an astounding amount of bible verses and religious rhetoric. Points that could be addressed relatively quickly are drawn out and often padded with unnecessary biblical stories.

This is just a fair warning to anyone (like myself) who enjoys Jordan’s talks online/podcasts and was expecting a comprehensive scientific analysis of points not Bible rambling. This book could be half the length and just as beneficial.
