What does everyone in the modern world need to know? A renowned psychologist answers hard questions with a unique combination of ancient wisdom and clinical experience.

Jordan Peterson's work as a clinical psychologist has reshaped the modern understanding of personality, and now he has become one of the world's most popular public thinkers, with his lectures on topics ranging from the Bible to romantic relationships drawing tens of millions of viewers. In an era of polarizing politics, echo chambers and trigger warnings, his startling message about the value of personal responsibility and the dangers of ideology has resonated around the world.

In this book, he combines ancient wisdom with decades of experience to provide twelve profound and challenging 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. 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.

Industry Reviews

Genuinely extraordinary... Unmatched by any other modern thinker ... A prophet for our times -- Dominic Sandbrook * Daily Mail *
The most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now * New York Times *
Everyone must read 12 Rules For Life... The most enlightening book I have read in ages. Google him if you like, if it makes you feel better. It will, by the way. But get the book, that is the most important thing. And then read it. And then pass it on to a friend -- Chris Evans
In a different intellectual league... Peterson can take the most difficult ideas and make them entertaining. This may be why his YouTube videos have had 35m views. He is fast becoming the closest that academia has to a rock star * Observer *
Charismatic and exceptionally articulate.... Peterson is a new kind of public intellectual, using YouTube to spread ideas infinitely wider than predecessors such as Bertrand Russell or Isaiah Berlin -- Amol Rajan * New Statesman *
Anyone who is in a position of leadership would find it very insightful ... Jordan Peterson is a profound writer -- Gina Miller
It is that rare thing: self-help that might actually be helpful * New Statesman *
Fascinating ... Peterson is brilliant on many subjects -- Bryan Appleyard * Sunday Times *
One of the most eclectic and stimulating public intellectuals at large today, fearless and impassioned -- Matthew d'Ancona * Guardian *
Profound, charismatic and serious... One of the most important thinkers to emerge on the world stage for many years -- Tim Lott * Spectator *
The most sought-after psychologist in the world * Psychology Today *
A wonderful psychologist -- Malcolm Gladwell
Like the best intellectual polymaths, Peterson invites his readers to embark on their own intellectual, spiritual and ideological journeys... You have nothing to lose but your own misery * Toronto Star *
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
Someone with not only humanity and humour, but serious depth and substance ... Peterson has a truly cosmopolitan and omnivorous intellect... There is a burning sincerity to the man * Spectator *
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 *
Jordan Peterson is a Canadian psychologist whose seemingly overnight ascent to cultural rockstar comes after years of deep scholarship in many disciplines * Psychology Today *
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'
Peterson has become a kind of secular prophet who, in an era of lobotomised conformism, thinks out of the box ... His message is overwhelmingly vital -- Melanie Philips * The Times *

Excellent book. Educative and pragmatic.

It's a book full of the wisdom which comes from a bright inquiring mind with extensive experience in the area under discussion. A book which has helped many find their way out of chaos and into meaning.

Sound wisdom - I'll be reading again and again

5

Although this book is almost like a text book (and is easier as audio book) its message is so important and relevant that I knew it would become a reference book for life. For me, the rules are about how to live your best life and helps with understanding the chaos around us. It also guides as a warning on how easily the freedoms we enjoy today could all be destroyed.

We're all human with various human failings and need this sort of encouragement to shape up and stop whinging or blaming others. It has been appreciated by many and stirred up some who can't take the truth. The focus on biblical interpretations will put some off but they are there to ink the old to the new science of psychology.

Greensborough

A breath of freash air

Dr Peterson is a must read for all people who have been looking for a voice people who have spent a life time of being miss under stood to help them articulate what they have all way though

Sydney

true

Good rules but the explanation can be overly convoluted.

3

The author tackles many complex issues with a keen and insightful mind mixed with sharp humour. At times he unnecessarily labours the message.

Practical self help, no nonsense

5

Finally a self help book for everyone, even the seasoned sceptics. No higher power, no new age spirituality, just a practised clinical psychologist and intellectual using referenced science, history and religious culture for a straight forward approach to living a better, more meaningful life. Great for anyone suffering with addiction, bad habits, lack of direction, or just plain hate your position in work/life. Not promising a miracle but this book will help anyone point in the right direction towards daily improvement and put an end to the daily struggle.
