12 Rules for Life

An Antidote to Chaos

#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

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.
What does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and about 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 journeys broadly, discussing discipline, freedom, adventure and responsibility, distilling the world's wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life. 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science, faith and human nature, while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its readers.
Rezension
#1 NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

"Like the best intellectual polymaths, Peterson invites his readers to embark on their own intellectual, spiritual and ideological journeys into the many topics and disciplines he touches on. It's a counter-intuitive strategy for a population hooked on the instant gratification of ideological conformity and social media 'likes,' but if Peterson is right, you have nothing to lose but your own misery." -Toronto Star

"In a different intellectual league. . . . Peterson can take the most difficult ideas and make them entertaining. This may be why his YouTube videos have had 35 million views. He is fast becoming the closest that academia has to a rock star." -The Observer

"Grow up and man up is the message from this rock-star psychologist. . . . [A] hardline self-help manual of self-reliance, good behaviour, self-betterment and individualism that probably reflects his childhood in rural Canada in the 1960s. As with all self-help manuals, there's always a kernel of truth. Formerly a Harvard professor, now at the University of Toronto, Peterson retains that whiff of cowboy philosophy-one essay is a homily on doing one thing every day to improve yourself. Another, on bringing up little children to behave, is excellent.... [Peterson] twirls ideas around like a magician." -Melanie Reid, The Times

"You don't have to agree with [Peterson's politics] to like this book for, once you discard the self-help label, it becomes fascinating. Peterson is brilliant on many subjects. . . . So what we have here is a baggy, aggressive, in-your-face, get-real book that, ultimately, is an attempt to lead us back to what Peterson sees as the true, the beautiful and the good-i.e. God. In the highest possible sense of the term, I suppose it is a self-help book. . . . Either way, it's a rocky read, but nobody ever said God was easy." -Bryan Appleyard, The Times

"One of the most eclectic and stimulating public intellectuals at large today, fearless and impassioned." -The Guardian

"Someone with not only humanity and humour, but serious depth and substance. . . . Peterson has a truly cosmopolitan and omnivorous intellect, but one that recognizes that things need grounding in a home if they are ever going to be meaningfully grasped. . . . As well as being funny, there is a burning sincerity to the man which only the most withered cynic could suspect." -The Spectator

"Peterson has become a kind of secular prophet who, in an era of lobotomized conformism, thinks out of the box. . . . His message is overwhelmingly vital." -Melanie Philips, The Times

Habe kürzlich einen Vortrag von Dr. Peterson in Manchester sehen dürfen. Ein wahrlich einzigartiger Mensch der auch auf der Bühne durch gelebte Gestik versucht, seine Gedanken immer neu zu fassen. Sein Buch reflektiert nicht nur seine eigenen Erfahrungen, vor allem in seinem Leben als Vater einer kranken Tochter, sondern auch die Erfahrungen seiner vielen Kunden. Peterson ist nicht nur eine Youtube Prominenz welche keine Scheu davor macht sich gegen die verhärtete, extreme Linke zu stellen, sondern auch ein sehr emphatischer und aufmerksamer Mann in einer gefährlichen Welt. In seinem neuesten Buch schafft er es, seine Regeln spannend und gekonnt an seine Leserschaft zu vermitteln. Wirklich sehr empfehlenswert für den, der noch nicht zufrieden ist sowie für den der bereit ist seine Sichten in frage gestellt zu sehen. "Compare yourself to who you where yesterday, not to who someone else is today."
