Publisher's Summary

Important note: This is a book summary of 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos by Jordan Peterson. This is not the original book.

Jordan B. Peterson's 12 Rules for Life is thought-provoking in every sense of the word. The Canadian clinical psychologist puts forth his ideas about a Creator, personality, existence, the interconnectedness of order and chaos, the gender roles assignment discourse, and a variety of other controversial topics.

It is refreshing, and sometimes confusing, how he weaves biblical accounts and characters into the telling of his stories. But what might raise the hairs the most are his views on political correctness regarding cultural appropriation, white-privilege, postmodernism, and everything in between. One thing is clear about Peterson. He is a man unapologetic of his views, which are largely unpopular, closely conservative, and politically incorrect.

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.

In this summary, I will walk you through all the ideas worth remembering from that book, as well as a detailed summary of every single chapter.

A ton of value to your life.

I don't think you can read this book and get nothing out of it. It is definitely worth a quick read if you are busy, but if you have the time, a thorough reading will net you a ton of value to your life.

The Rules of Life

The 12 Rules For Life, Expanded is an entertaining listening. The rules are pretty comprehensive, cheerfully explained, and accessibly broken up into chapters you can refer back to easily to work on problem areas. And we all have those. I listen it consecutively so I wouldn't miss anything, but skipping around would work if you must, Recommend highly.

It has lots of good ideas

12 Rules has honestly changed my life in tangible ways. The main theme is understand that as a individual all you can do is look for ways to better yourself through personal accountability and conscientiousness. It has lots of good ideas and would be an asset to your library
