What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research.

Humorous, surprising and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street.
What does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and about success in life? Why did ancient Egyptians worship the capacity to pay careful attention as the highest of gods? What dreadful paths do people tread when they become resentful, arrogant and vengeful? Dr. Peterson journeys broadly, discussing discipline, freedom, adventure and responsibility, distilling the world's wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life. 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science, faith and human nature, while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its readers.

I tried to like this book but found it was a series of disconnected generalizations. He's certainly smart for it's content but it goes way too deep into biblical references. Some things really don't have any place in this book (chapter about cats, really?). I suffered through 8 discs and tried the last one to see if there was any redemption but got very little out of it (especially due to it's length). I wouldn't recommend it. I sufferred so you wouldn't have to.

His 12 rules are unexpected fresh ways of looking at life. My favorite rules is #2: "Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping." Enjoy.
