This book provides some great insight on people's day to day struggles. You can choose to interpret the terminology "human", "chimp" etc. to more familiar terms as "prefrontal cortex" and "amygdala" respectively or even "light" and "darkness". It's totally up to you. The narration is great and the whole book progresses very smoothly to explain why we do what we do and how we can change that. In conclusion, excellent.

Excellent read!

This is a great book! Contains information on the RAS, which seems to be quite popular. It's mainly about goal setting, with a touch on associated emotions about goal setting. The book also has parts of Alan and Barbara's story that might help you gain a different perspective.

Peterson manages to go in depth and simplify so that a listener without a background in psychology will understand. This is definitely the best title I've read/listened to for a decade. Simply amazing!

The book actually talks about empathy and the need to feel significant. Most of the points are made through examples that you may or may not find interesting but can appreaciate anyway.
