Summary

Summary: 12 Rules for Life by Jordan B. Peterson: An Antidote to Chaos 

(Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book. If you’re looking for the original book, it is available from Amazon and Audible.)

Called “one of the most important thinkers to emerge on the world stage for many years,” by The Spectator, Jordan B. Peterson's 12 Rules for Life is a truly thought-provoking read. How should we live in the modern world? Peterson aims to answer this question using his unique blend of ancient traditions, religion and scientific research from his many years as a clinical psychologist. 

He does not shy away from the hard questions and controversial topics. White privilege, postmodernism, gender identity, and the source of the world's greatest evils are all discussed. It should not be forgotten amid his controversial opinions that Peterson has over 20 years’ experience as a psychologist and offers countless nuggets of wisdom on living a better life throughout. 

Peterson journeys broadly, providing advice on confidence, dominance, communication, discipline, meaning and so much more. If you want to live a better life, read this book, study it - then live it. 

Why should you always pet a cat when you meet one in the street?

What can we learn from lobsters about success in life?

What terrible fate awaits those who criticize all the time?

Listen to find out!

It takes the average person 49.5 minutes to read 9000 words.

For the price of a coffee and a time investment of roughly 2 percent of your day, I believe the wisdom in this book to be well worth it's value. This book allows you to skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed, listenable way, including key takeaways at the end of each chapter. Save yourself time and money.

A fantastic piece!

A fantastic piece I finished in just about an hour and a half, makes you think to yourself how you can improve on yourself in many aspects. Best part is the conclusion that states you should listen over the key topics of each chapter once a week and I highly agree!

Great strategy!

Over all a book to keep you focus in your daily life. There are a lot of bad influences out there. This book will keep you focus. You don't have to listen the book over and over again. Just listene the takeaways at the end of each chapter. Great strategy!

To the point.

In one sitting you can easily finish, but the thoughts will continue as you strive to realize which rules most impact you.
