What needs to be known to everyone in the modern world? The reply to this most challenging of issues by renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson mixes the hard-won truths of old tradition with the amazing discoveries of cutting-edge scientific research.
Humorous, unexpected, and informative, Dr. Peterson informs us why it is necessary to leave skateboarding children and women alone, what awful destiny awaits those who criticize too readily, and why you should always pet a cat when you encounter one on the road.
What does the lowly lobster’s nervous system need to inform us about getting up directly (with our heads back) and living achievement? Why didn ancient Egyptians praise the ability of being the greatest gods to give cautious thought? When they become resentful, lazy, and vengeful, what terrible routes do individuals follow? Dr. Peterson travels widely, debating morality, liberty, adventure, and accountability, distilling the wisdom of the world into twelve practical, deep laws of existence. 12 By transforming and ennobling the mind and mood of its viewers, Rules for Life breaks down the contemporary commonplaces of science, faith and human nature.
