image3.9/5.0

#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.

A book that came into being from an answer posted by the writer himself on quora, it deals with the middle ground, the no man's land between order and disorder (chaos as he puts it), the right amount of discipline a person should have in his life. In times, it may seem unrelatable to people who are not used to religious (Christian) stories (testaments, something about exodus and other similar things) like me.

En form for selvhjælpsbog forfattet af en psykolog, der udover egen praksis blandt andet underviser på Harvard. Enormt mange vil garanteret anskue Peterson som højreorienteret, da hans version af den bedste måde at leve livet på, ryste ved de identitetspolitiske og krænkelsesparates verdensbillede. I min optik har han relevante pointer omkring religion, kønnenes rolle og individets magt over sig selv. Om ikke andet er hans stemme, en modpositionering til en masse mennesler, der råber rigtig højt, uden nødvendigvis at have noget relevant at bidrage med. Jeg siger tag hvad du kan bruge fra Peterson og kassér resten, eller endnu bedre udfordre de ting, du er uenig med.
