12 rules for life: An antidote to chaos.

This is a very good book that is very well written. This book is not a self-help book, even though it does help the self a lot rather it's the deep views of a serious thinker about life's most important questions it sort of is, but really it's a tour around some of the most important impulses of the human mind. The fundamental insight from this book is that our norms and culture exist for a reason and that attempts to interfere with those are likely to have profound detrimental impacts on society as a whole and individuals who won't know how to relate to other people properly. Sadly, it's all very true. At a time where the truth of many opinions are based on the loud voices that preach them and the forces that bully the oppositions, Peterson's original thinking is a breath of fresh air. Even if you don't agree with him in everything, you will definitely learn many things from him and more importantly you will have respect for his character and how he stands for his principles. He is a very gifted and passionate storyteller and I hope he continues the conversation. A must read for all, but particularly those on the cusp of adulthood.

12 Rules for Life

Peterson draws on evolutionary biology, politics, literary and biblical stories, even delving into fascinating elements of memoir about where he grew up, which is revealing of his tough countenance.

Good book

The phrase "12 rules" makes it sound straightforward, but there is nothing simple about this book. At its basis, this book aims to explain the purpose of existence in as simple a position as possible.
