This book provides incredible insight into the role of extremism (on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian war) in the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin and the subsequent failure of the Oslo Accords. It's in-depth, well-research and extremely compelling. Must read. #audible1

Incredibly written and researched, this story is almost too compelling and scary to be true. But it is. A must read for those interested in health care technology or Silicon Valley startups. #audible1

I'm of two minds about this book. The concept of Talpiot is compelling and something the world should learn from. However, I don't feel Gewirtz made his telling of the formation and success of this unit compelling at all. I would have liked to read more about how Talpiot rose to its strength, the politics behind the unit, and how Talpiot strengthens Israel. While there is certainly some of that in this book, 75% of the book are mini-biographies of Talpiot graduates. While some of these are interesting, there were simply too many, and the book got boring. Instead of reading the full book, you can get just as much out of reading the first few chapters on its history, and the last chapter. #Audible1

Tough read. The ideas are interesting and the thought process is compelling. However the book is written in a very theoretical way, without many tips or practical applications. #Audible1

Extremely useful for work and persona life!

Wow. I got this book on Audible for only $2.00, and I would have been willing to pay $20 if I had known how useful this would be. We have all dealt with people with high-conflict personalities at work and personally. When you can't avoid them, this book helps you identify them and approach them in a constructive manner. It is short, clear, and with very practical tips. Some useful points I learned included:
1. Characteristics of a high conflict personality: All or nothing thinking, intense emotions, extreme behaviour and threats, blaming others.
2. The interaction between HCPs and personality disorders.
3. Dealing with HCPs: BIFF - brief, informative, friendly and firm.
4. The CARS approach to working with HCPs: Connect with empathy, attention & respect, Analyze alternatives and options, Respond to misinformation and hostility, Set limits on high-conflict behaviour.

I will likely use the methods described in this book for the rest of my working life, although hopefully not often. I would highly recommend this book!

Makes you think (or more)

This book is really a book of philosophy for the 21st century, and is written as such. While it's researched and annotated like an academic thesis, it truly defines Peterson's philosophy of life. You may agree or disagree with various aspects of the book, however there is no doubt that it will affect your thoughts on the world in a profound way. What higher recommendation for a book could there be beyond "makes you think"? Well, "will change your life" is one - and this book could do just that.
