Inhaltsangabe

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 listeners.

Kritikerstimmen

"Jordan Peterson is the most important and influential Canadian thinker since Marshall McLuhan. His international fame and impact continue to grow exponentially. Peterson's bold interdisciplinary synthesis of psychology, anthropology, science, politics and comparative religion is forming the template for the genuinely humanistic university of the future." (Camille Paglia)

"Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules for Life hits home - from identifying the deeply engrained hierarchical ladder that motivates our decision making to asking indispensable and sometimes politically unpopular questions about your life and suggesting ways to better it. If that's not enough, its first twenty pages give a summary of evolutionary psychology that's breathtaking." (Howard Bloom, author of The Lucifer Principle)

"Firm but caring.... Peterson speaks the way I always wished my father had.... He is the right man at the right time, someone capable of showing young men that cleaning up their room has cosmic significance, and that imposing a little order upon chaos is good for the soul, which in turn is good for the world." (National Review)

Absolut hörenswert!

Ich habe schon viel von Jordan B Peterson angehört. Dies hier ist eine gute Zusammenfassung.
Er hat meinen Blick auf die Welt verändert und meine Lebensqualität gesteigert.
Bemerkenswert finde ich, dass er es geschafft hat mir, einem großen Bibel Kritiker/Skeptiker, die Augen zu öffnen wie voll von wertvollen Informationen die Bibel ist. Man wird dadurch nicht unbedingt ein Christ. Ich bin nach wie vor keiner, aber die Geschichten als Geschichten helfen die Welt zu verstehen, wenn Jordan sie erklärt.
Abschließend will ich sagen: es ist eine besondere Qualität das Buch von ihm gelesen zu hören. Er versteckt seine Emotionen nicht. Er ist ehrlich und echt und wenn ihn etwas berührt hört man das.
Von Jordan sollten wir uns alle eine Scheibe abschneiden.

this book is excellent! especially if you are already familiar with Jordan B. Peterson's work. This should be read by young people, in school for example.

Einfach großartig!

Das Buch hat mein Leben sehr zum positiven beeinflusst. Ich habe Probleme und hatte trotz mehrerer Jahre Therapie nie die Motivation gefunden mich Ihnen zu stellen und mein Leben nachhaltig zu verbessern, bis ich Jordan Peterson gehört habe. Meine Karriere und mein Liebesleben haben sich unwahrscheinlich verbessert.

So much wisdom!!!

If you like Petersons Youtube lectures, listen!! Sometimes he goes a bit deep into the Subject. Maybee i skipped 30 minutes of this 15 Hours. But if you want to know the truth and improve your life, listen. It works!! It stimulates your thougts and your soul.

Don't get the hype

I don't get the hype around the book. Peterson gives some general self help ideas which might be helpful for some people. but they are based on a random selection of books (e.g. often the Bible) out of which he arbitrarily selects some passages, which he claims to be archetypical in some form, and interprets them in a way without digging too deep into the historical context or original language.
if it is helpful for some people that is fine with me, but neither the "rules" nor the way he derived them did really impress me

pure masterpiece

I was very touched by the book.
Jordan Peterson discusses themes such as purpose of being, how to act in spite of adversity, and proposes a set of rules which ought to be followed in order to improve one's quality ot life.
Even though I may not agree a 100% with the author, I can recommend this (audio) book to everyone since it leads one through many life-changing questions which should be thought about in order to understand oneself and one's actions as well as their underlying motives.
5 of 5 stars.
