The #1 Sunday Times and International Bestseller from 'the most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now' (New York Times) 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 criticising 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 the author's clinical practice and personal life, cutting edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity's oldest myths and stories, 12 Rules for Life offers a deeply rewarding antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

    Jag hade stora förväntningar men blev besviken. Det var många ord - mycket prat och briljerande på det sättet men ingen substans i mitt tycke. Förordet var lovande. Jag orkade inte läsa mer än början på det som Peterson själv skrivit.

  2. Prepare to get your reality checked
    Justin Troy Bentley, 26 februari 2018

    Refreshing look at your horrible self and a realistic take on what makes it that way. A book that will wake you up with a slap and throw some tools your way if you got the cojones to take that battle.

  3. Lärorik och givande
    Sofia, 26 februari 2018

    Boken ger konkreta tips på vad du kan göra för att få ett mer meningsfullt liv med exempel från verkliga livet. Boken och Peterson föreläsningar på youtube har verkligen förändrat mitt liv och hjälpt mot ångest

  4. Enlightened
    Micael Eklund, 23 februari 2018

    Everyone should read this book. It's really good and you get a few tips on how to fight life itself. A really good read. Most definitely.

  5. Strålande
    Peter, 15 februari 2018

    Jag har följt Peterson i ett knappt år och kände såklart igen mkt i boken från hans föreläsningar och uttalanden. Eftersom jag tycker hans åsikter och utspel är precis det som behövs i dagens samhälle tyckte jag därför att boken var mycket bra. Den enda invändningen är att det ibland kan kännas som att det även inom boken är lite upprepningar. Ngt förläggaren borde kunnat hantera. Men det är å andra sidan kanske en del av charmen, beror väl på hur man är lagd.

His message is overwhelmingly vital -- Melanie Philips * The Times * 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' Jordan Peterson is a Canadian psychologist whose seemingly overnight ascent to cultural rockstar comes after years of deep scholarship in many disciplines * Psychology Today * A rock-star academic, a cool, cowboy-boot-wearing public thinker who directs tough love at overprotected youth ... Peterson twirls ideas around like a magician -- Melanie Reid * The Times * Someone with not only humanity and humour, but serious depth and substance ...
