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.

Loved the connection made between biblical principles through Scripture and human behaviour applied to today's issues. Much wisdom exists in that approach to life in my opinion.

For 25 years, Debby Irving sensed inexplicable racial tensions in her personal and professional relationships. As a colleague and neighbor, she worried about offending people she dearly wanted to befriend. As an arts administrator, she didn't understand why her diversity efforts lacked traction. As a teacher, she found her best efforts to reach out to students and families of color left her wondering what she was missing.

I was wishing for a book like this! Addressing racism is difficult. I often am in awe that intelligent, kind and well-meaning people (even my friends and colleagues) are unaware of true American history, the development of racism and the misconceptions and prejudices we are all exposed to. This book challenges the person who really wants to understand racism and is not afraid to question if they themselves are racists. I admire this author for taking a very difficult journey of self awareness and sharing it with us.
