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.

Although some of the advise is sound, some of the stories interesting, the constant referral to Bible verses and scriptures is cringeworthy. Speaking of Adam and Eve as if any of that actually happened debunks the authors intelligence for me. So any advise that comes after a religious statement for me is worthless... I understand there is some good teachings in the bible that a person can absorb, however there is also horrific things in that book, so for me I’d rather not bother.... some authors can take the sound advice from the bible and modernize it to be useful now. This author did not.
