Twelve Rules for Life

by Jordan Peterson

'One of the most important thinkers to emerge on the world stage for many years'

(The Spectator).

'Renowned psychologist Jordan B Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the surprising 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. What does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and success in life? Why did ancient Egyptians worship the capacity to pay careful attention as the highest of gods? What dreadful paths do people tread when they become resentful, arrogant and vengeful?

Dr. Peterson discusses discipline, responsibility, freedom and adventure, distilling the world’s wisdom into twelve wide-ranging essays, practical and profound. Join those who have already found inspiration and direction in Dr. Peterson’s teaching. Discover in this book of exceptional power 12 simple yet profound rules for sorting yourself out, setting your house in order, and improving the world–by starting with yourself.'
