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.

Big fan of Jordan Peterson.
have watched many of his interviews and YouTube videos.
in this book he rambles on for hours about the Bible. Jesus and the devil...
I wouldn't have minded the odd reference to illustrate a point. For much of the book he is just reading scripture.
if you have watched his lectures and YouTube videos you will likely get nothing more from this book.
At points it was painful to listen to.
Disappointed to say the least.
