Inhaltsangabe

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of 12 Rules for Life, written and read by Jordan B. Peterson.

What are the most valuable things that everyone should know? Acclaimed clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson has influenced the modern understanding of personality, and now he has become one of the world's most popular public thinkers, with his lectures on topics from the Bible to romantic relationships to mythology drawing tens of millions of viewers.

In an era of unprecedented change and polarising politics, his frank and refreshing message about the value of individual responsibility and ancient wisdom has resonated around the world.

In this book, he provides 12 profound and practical principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticising others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today. Happiness is a pointless goal, he shows us. Instead we must search for meaning, not for its own sake but as a defence against the suffering that is intrinsic to our existence.

Drawing on vivid examples from his clinical practice and personal life, cutting-edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity's oldest myths and stories, Peterson takes the listener on an intellectual journey like no other. Gripping, thought-provoking and deeply rewarding, 12 Rules for Life offers an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

A timely book - thinking with a Nietzschean Hammer

Würden Sie 12 Rules for Life noch mal anhören? Warum?

I'm going to listen to some of the chapters of Petersons book. The rules about "Rule 1: Stand up straight with your shoulders back" and "Rule 5: Do not let your children do anything, that makes you dislike them." are probably those that I will listen to once more. Not that the other chapters are no good, but those two advices and the information accompanying them, where those that I feel are the most relevant to me.
I've seen several of the lectures of Jordan B Peterson on his Youtube-channel, and there is a lot material, phrases and themes that are recurring in this book. It doesn't bother me, because they bear repeating. I've primarily been taken in by his lectures on personality, where I learned new things, to me, about e.g. the Big Five.
I've been surprised to what extent he is steeped in the existentialist thinking - I've seen that he has does lectures, but I haven't watched them.
His thinking is an amalgam of Jungian, Existentialist and Psychological thinking, where he also draws from literary sources, in particular Dostojevski and Solstjenetzyn.
On the negative side, I must admit that his many excursions in to Jungian thinking, and his interpretations of Biblical Motives leaves me unconvinced. I might give Jung a chance in a near future to see if I've been wrong about him as a thinker, but I wrote him off many years ago.
Where I find Peterson at his best and most timely is on his insistence, that that there are some prevalent misconceptions at the moment about the sexes, childrearing, equality etc. Ideas that are not helpful, but rather hurtful and a hindrance in the pursuit of meaningful lives.
Finally I was surprised and moved by the story about his daughter's plight.
Jordan B Peterson is a timely writer for these times. A psychologist with a Nietzschean Hammer for a pen, megaphoning out thoughts and truths about men, women, sex, children, the left, the meaning of life and existence.

Little Life-Philosophy

Started interesting with big dramatugically pattern of Chaos and order. But transformed in a book containing simple and useless hints about Children and Pets. I am really bored and will Hive it back.

Listen/read only a few pages at a time

Peterson wrote this like a religious book. Repitition is common in a few segments of this book. This can be very annoying if listened to in long sessions. The ending part has a really weird amendments vibe to it, where peterson asks himself questions which he answers himself in a very theatralic way, almost as if god spoke to him. It's a solid book but bloated and at points close to religiously theatralic and vague.

Gute Übersicht über Dr. Petersons Philosophie

Würden Sie 12 Rules for Life noch mal anhören? Warum?

Das Buch ist für jeden geeignet, der sich mit den Themen Sinn des Lebens und Moral auseinandersetzen will. Dabei ist es kein klassisches Selbsthilfebuch mit trivialen Einsichten sondern ehr eine Erleuterung und Aktualisierung der Werte des Abendlandes. Prof. Jordan Peterson verbindet dabei kompetent philosophie und religiöse Tradition mit fundierten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen aus Psychologie und Biologie.Das Buch ist eine Fortführung der Philosophie von Prof. Jordan Peterson, für mich ist es eine etwas einfacher zugängliche Version von Maps of Meaning. Für Fans von Prof. Jordan Peterson gibt es nicht so viel Neues, jedoch ist es kompakter zusammen gefasst als seine ehr losen Vorträge und Vorlesungen auf Youtube.Gelesen wird das Buch von Prof. Jordan Peterson selbst. Er hat sicherlich keine klassische Radiostimme, aber aus meiner Sicht ist es am authentischten ihn selber zu hören.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Insgesamt eine große Empfehlung!

This book is life changing and enlightening!

Every young person from generation Y and Z should read this book! We live in nihilistic times that force us to reevaluate why things we used to do might be important and why we shouldn't just randomly cast aside things that have established themselves through evolution itself. Read this, this book will help anyone understand themselves and the world better.

the harsh truth of life mixed with the best advice

I wish someone had told me, what Dr. JP wrote in this book many years ago.
subconsciously I knew 70% of what he said, but it's a whole different thing hearing them, in such detail and honesty.
The examples used ( Bible verses ) might be a bit repetitive, but always on point with the topic.
Really looking forward to the audio version of "Maps of meaning"
thank you Dr. Jordan B. Peterson for making society great again.

Zu christlich für nicht religiöse Menschen

An Und für sich sind einige schöne Passagen enthalten. Für mich als nicht christlichen Menschen sind mir ein paar davon allerdings zu religiös angehaucht. Es geht sehr viel um sein eigenes Leben. Daraus kann man Inspiration fürs eigene finden, aber Naja. Ganz ok.

Schlechte Ratschläge und Bibelinterpretationen.

I bought this audiobook because Jordan Peterson says in many YouTube videos a lot of rational stuff that has a lot to do with common sense. But this book is a gross disappointment. Not only does he consistently derive his conclusions from a biblical interpretation, but he completely ignores the real reasons for human behavior (eg, we humans do not dislike ourselves because Adam and Eve were thrown out of paradise, but because our lives are littered with defeat every single day). That would still be a venial sin. But where it gets problematic and blatant is when a professor of psychology - with all the authority in this title - actually believes that childrearing advice can be based on his private life experience and dealt with in a single, short chapter. As if he were a former professional footballer who is just saying some menial advice which better anyway no one should listen to. And what kind of advice is that: you should "poke" your children with your finger when they do something that makes us dislike them (as if kids have to behave always in a way WE like); also, you just have to use your physical superiority and hold down children in their bed until they do not get up - etc. etc. Terrible and I think dangerous. I do not want to know how many people out there "sting" their children with their index finger right now “because that's what Professor Peterson advices”, how many pin their kids down because of this bad, bad book.
