Summary

A comprehensive summary of the book 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, by Jordan B. Peterson.  

Jordan B. Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life is quite thought provoking. The Canadian clinical psychologist puts forth his ideas about personality, being, existence; the interconnectedness of order and chaos, two forces evident in all of life; the gender roles assignment discourse; the source of the world’s greatest evils; and many other controversial topics.  

It is refreshing, and sometimes confusing, how he weaves biblical accounts and characters into the telling of his stories. But what might raise the hairs of most are his views on political correctness regarding postmodernism, white privilege, cultural appropriation, and everything in between. One thing is clear about Peterson. He is a man unapologetic for his views, which are largely unpopular, closely conservative, and politically incorrect.  

This audiobook contains a comprehensive, well-detailed summary and key takeaways of the original book by Jordan B. Peterson. It summarizes the book in detail to help people effectively understand, articulate, and imbibe the original work by Peterson. This audiobook is not meant to replace the original book, but to serve as a companion to it.

Contained you will find:

  • Executive summary of the original book 
  • Key points of each chapter
  • Brief chapter-by-chapter summaries

Disclaimer: This is a summary review of the book 12 Rules for Life and not the original book.

Great tool for living in today's world

This book should offer something of value for everyone. I wish I had this book when I was a young man finding my way. Share it with any young people you know, especially if they have children. Truly worth your time.

this book shows it to be refreshingly

It really in short time has helped me to construct a more purposeful and meaning-oriented framework for life and tear down some of my poorly constructed thinking. If you are an individual searching for meaning, attempting to find easy steps to begin making positive progress in your own life, this book is great for you!

The advice and suggestions given in this book are solid. TWELVE RULES offers another direction with mythological and phycological reasons for the human condition
it gives practical strategies to make the burdens of living a little lighter..

Thank God for the Summary

If I had to listen to the full book I'd shoot myself. The original author knows how to put it's listeners to sleep after pulling their hair out.

Duped

The clever book cover looks surprising like the one by Dr. Peterson. I thought this summary left out a lot of important parts (now that I have read the full book)..

Words to live by.

I'm not a religious person, but I was raised one. Normally I avoid a 'preachy' type of motivational media. But in this, the biblical references are just that, references. I found it enlightening, and historically engaging.
