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.

This book is less 12 rules for life and more like 12 hours of extraneous bible references and christian theology.

Still I tried to continue listening to this, but it gets so dogmatic and desperate to take chriatian quotes and reinterpret them to have some profound meaning that corresponds to the authors own ideas that it borders on the ridiculous.

There were other aspects, besides the borderline bible thumping, that bothered me (see other reviews).

But the essence of my review is that this book is not what it would have you believe it is from the cover (and would not be suitable for anyone that isn't North American, Christian, white and of a conservative background)
