12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos [9780241351635]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

'One of the most important thinkers to emerge on the world stage for many years' - Spectator

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, with his lectures on topics from the Bible to romantic relationships to mythology drawing tens of millions of viewers. In an era of unprecedented change and polarizing politics, his frank and refreshing message about the value of individual responsibility and ancient wisdom has resonated around the world.

In this book, he provides twelve profound and practical principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticizing others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today. Happiness is a pointless goal, he shows us. Instead we must search for meaning, not for its own sake, but as a defence against the suffering that is intrinsic to our existence.

Drawing on vivid examples from his clinical practice and personal life, cutting edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity's oldest myths and stories, Peterson takes the reader on an intellectual journey like no other. Gripping, thought-provoking and deeply rewarding, 12 Rules for Life offers an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

Praise for Jordan Peterson

'Jordan Peterson is the most important and influential Canadian thinker since Marshall McLuhan. His bold synthesis of psychology, anthropology, science, politics and comparative religion is forming a genuinely humanistic university of the future' - Camille Paglia

'Profound, charismatic and serious ... Peterson has become increasingly difficult to ignore - and whoever chooses to do so will deprive themselves of an intriguing intellectual journey' - Tim Lott, Spectator

'A master at helping his students become more reflective, and take themselves and their futures more seriously' - Norman Doidge, author of The Brain That Changes Itself (from the foreword)

'12 Rules for Life hits home - from identifying the deeply engrained hierarchical ladder that motivates our decision-making to asking indispensable and sometimes politically unpopular questions about your life and suggesting ways to better it' - Howard Bloom, author of The Lucifer Principle


AUTHOR: Jordan B. Peterson is a Professor of psychology at the University of Toronto. Raised in the frigid wastelands of Northern Alberta, he has flown a hammer-head roll in a carbon-fiber stunt-plane, and built a Kwagu'l ceremonial bighouse on the upper floor of his Toronto home after being invited into and named by that Canadian First Nation. He's taught mythology to lawyers, doctors and business people, consulted for the UN Secretary General, helped his clinical clients manage depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety, and lectured extensively in North America and Europe. With his students and colleagues, Dr. Peterson has published over a hundred scientific papers, and his book Maps of Meaning revolutionized the psychology of religion. Formerly a professor at Harvard University, he was nominated for its prestigious Levenson Teaching Prize.

    Hits the nail on the head

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Mar 2018

    Fascinating, well written, amusing. Peterson is well informed, well read and totally immersed in his subject. He has lots of highly useful and significant things to say that help me move forward in my life and make sense of my difficulties

    Life and people are going to mess you up. Don't go in a destructive huff about it. Get going on the hero's journey - start by cleaning your room, rescue your dad from the belly of the whale (embrace and improve upon tradition) and follow the Messiah in trying to bring heaven on Earth. Simples.Oh, and stand up straight like a lobster. :) Jordan Peterson is a modern day hero and I only wish I had read this book a long time ago. Definitely recommend
