    I see many five-star reviews here, so here is the contrarian position. I?m giving this one star for a couple of reasons. 1. The content does not justify the length of the book. When you strip away the pseudo-profundity and verbosity, you?re left with rather simple ideas you cou...

    EDIT: to those thinking about buying this and are dissuaded by the 1 stars, I'd tread carefully amongst them, almost all of them just mischaracterize Peterson's views and take his ideas out of context in an attempt to slander his name in some way or call him a raging XXX-ist. I think I...

    Jordan Peterson may be the only clinical psychologist who believes that psychology is subordinate to philosophy and the one thing that psychology and philosophy both genuflect before is story. Story, or myth, predates religion and is, in fact, as old as language itself. In his earl...

    "Faulty tools produce faulty results." - Jordan B. Peterson, 12 Rules for Life I'm generally not a fan of self-help books and this one would have probably never hit my to-read shelf if a good friend of mine hadn't invited me to attend a live Jordan Peterson lecture in Phoenix a...

    Where have all the genuine intellectuals gone? Christopher Hitchens' death in 2011 left a huge gap that nobody has yet managed to fill, though many have tried. If anything, the absence of a voice like his these past years has shown just what a unique and profound thinker the man wa...

    I?ve highlighted more paragraphs in this book than any that I?ve read in the last? very long time! As should be expected, this is the literary equivalent of a kick up the ass. Like true originals, if you?ve heard him speak before, you?ll find it impossible not to read his ...

    When asked if I would take a leap of faith (pun evident later in review) and read Jordan B. Peterson?s book, I was slightly hesitant. Surely, I could take something away from this and learn how to incorporate it all into my daily life. If not, I would be able to drum up some interest...

    Awfully verbose, incoherent, and hurried text without any content original enough (on top of his online lectures) to grant writing this lengthy book. The rule about telling the truth stands out as a notable exception. ...

    This is a magnificent book. And part of that magnificence comes from the fact that it is ?complete? in the same sense that All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (Fulghum, 1989) was complete. The rules are simple: from ?stand up straight with your shoulders back,? ...

    I was really prepared to pick up this book with an open mind in order to understand what so many people have found compelling about it. After finishing, I have to say that for the most part I am more mystified than when I began. "12 Rules for Life" is technically what its advertised as...

    Far from the banal, "self-help," or, "life-coaching," images this book's title may suggest, psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson has crafted here a series of seemingly blunt and practical suggestions that look, at least superifically, as if they are ideas you and society at large already a...

    12 Rules (whittled down from an original 60 something) is about how to improve how you live. Each rule is explained in detail, and Peterson goes into the meaning of each subject philosophically, psychologically, and using varied examples from life. Although far more accessible, 12 Rule...

    Unlike what the title suggests, 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. At a time where the truth of many opinions are based on the loud voices that preach them an...

    I bought this thinking it was a self-help book - 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 lik...

    First, because of the endless politicization of this man, a couple things to know about me, if you're trying to determine what 'team' I'm on: Stop it. I'm not on a team. I hate teams. I despise identity politics of any kind. Facts are facts and truth is truth regardless of where it...

    Disgustingly boring. Could not, for the life of me, listen more than 25% of the book. I?ve enjoyed talks from Peterson but definitely not this book. I love others books on similar topics but really this book could?ve been condensed. There were too many unnecessary paragraphs and re...

    Keeping it real 100. This is the best self-help book I have read (which doesn't speak much - self-help books are generally terrible). If you need a self-help book, this might not even be a book for you. It is a bit too harsh and "fanatical" for everyday reader. But it is also true. ...

    Best every written self help book. Many thanks to Dr. Jordan for this wonderful and amazing book. This is THE ONLY ONE book (self help) you ever have to read in ,your entire life to live a balanced, peaceful and happy life. Best book since 2000. Love to recommend to everyone, must ...

    EDIT: to those thinking about buying this and are dissuaded by the 1 stars, I'd tread carefully amongst them, almost all of them just mischaracterize Peterson's views and take his ideas out of context in an attempt to slander his name in some way or call him a raging XXX-ist. I think I...

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! If you've never read a book in your life, you'd think JP is super smart. That baroque style of writing, those sentences that never end, the constant references to science and philosophy - "how does the man do it!?" you ask yourself. It's simple. The book's ...

    Jordan Peterson may be the only clinical psychologist who believes that psychology is subordinate to philosophy and the one thing that psychology and philosophy both genuflect before is story. Story, or myth, predates religion and is, in fact, as old as language itself. In his earl...

    So there is a lot of wisdom in here about how to live your life: don't blame other people, listen and understand other people's perspectives, be honest even though it's uncomfortable, and don't demonize humanity. And then all the wisdom goes down the toilet in one particular chapte...

    EDIT: to those thinking about buying this and are dissuaded by the 1 stars, I'd tread carefully amongst them, almost all of them just mischaracterize Peterson's views and take his ideas out of context in an attempt to slander his name in some way or call him a raging XXX-ist. I think I...

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! If you've never read a book in your life, you'd think JP is super smart. That baroque style of writing, those sentences that never end, the constant references to science and philosophy - "how does the man do it!?" you ask yourself. It's simple. The book's ...

    Jordan Peterson may be the only clinical psychologist who believes that psychology is subordinate to philosophy and the one thing that psychology and philosophy both genuflect before is story. Story, or myth, predates religion and is, in fact, as old as language itself. In his earl...

    So there is a lot of wisdom in here about how to live your life: don't blame other people, listen and understand other people's perspectives, be honest even though it's uncomfortable, and don't demonize humanity. And then all the wisdom goes down the toilet in one particular chapte...

    A book by Jordan Peterson, I won?t be able to do it justice. 12 Rules for Life is a wonderful book. It is typical Peterson with large amounts of insightful information and wit. The book includes information that I knew, did not know, and information I knew but did not know I knew (...

    Too Sweet to be Wholesome Jordan Peterson is a global phenomenon. He is good in print; even better in interviews. As a psychoanalyst, he has decades of experience and professional credibility (I find his Jungian approach far more interesting than Freudian or various cognitive method...

    Where have all the genuine intellectuals gone? Christopher Hitchens' death in 2011 left a huge gap that nobody has yet managed to fill, though many have tried. If anything, the absence of a voice like his these past years has shown just what a unique and profound thinker the man wa...

    I?ve highlighted more paragraphs in this book than any that I?ve read in the last? very long time! As should be expected, this is the literary equivalent of a kick up the ass. Like true originals, if you?ve heard him speak before, you?ll find it impossible not to read his ...

    When asked if I would take a leap of faith (pun evident later in review) and read Jordan B. Peterson?s book, I was slightly hesitant. Surely, I could take something away from this and learn how to incorporate it all into my daily life. If not, I would be able to drum up some interest...

    Awfully verbose, incoherent, and hurried text without any content original enough (on top of his online lectures) to grant writing this lengthy book. The rule about telling the truth stands out as a notable exception. ...

    This is a magnificent book. And part of that magnificence comes from the fact that it is ?complete? in the same sense that All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (Fulghum, 1989) was complete. The rules are simple: from ?stand up straight with your shoulders back,? ...

    I was really prepared to pick up this book with an open mind in order to understand what so many people have found compelling about it. After finishing, I have to say that for the most part I am more mystified than when I began. "12 Rules for Life" is technically what its advertised as...

    Far from the banal, "self-help," or, "life-coaching," images this book's title may suggest, psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson has crafted here a series of seemingly blunt and practical suggestions that look, at least superifically, as if they are ideas you and society at large already a...

    12 Rules (whittled down from an original 60 something) is about how to improve how you live. Each rule is explained in detail, and Peterson goes into the meaning of each subject philosophically, psychologically, and using varied examples from life. Although far more accessible, 12 Rule...

    Unlike what the title suggests, 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. At a time where the truth of many opinions are based on the loud voices that preach them an...

    I bought this thinking it was a self-help book - 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 lik...

    First, because of the endless politicization of this man, a couple things to know about me, if you're trying to determine what 'team' I'm on: Stop it. I'm not on a team. I hate teams. I despise identity politics of any kind. Facts are facts and truth is truth regardless of where it...

    Disgustingly boring. Could not, for the life of me, listen more than 25% of the book. I?ve enjoyed talks from Peterson but definitely not this book. I love others books on similar topics but really this book could?ve been condensed. There were too many unnecessary paragraphs and re...

    Keeping it real 100. This is the best self-help book I have read (which doesn't speak much - self-help books are generally terrible). If you need a self-help book, this might not even be a book for you. It is a bit too harsh and "fanatical" for everyday reader. But it is also true. ...

    I see many five-star reviews here, so here is the contrarian position. I?m giving this one star for a couple of reasons. 1. The content does not justify the length of the book. When you strip away the pseudo-profundity and verbosity, you?re left with rather simple ideas you cou...

    EDIT: to those thinking about buying this and are dissuaded by the 1 stars, I'd tread carefully amongst them, almost all of them just mischaracterize Peterson's views and take his ideas out of context in an attempt to slander his name in some way or call him a raging XXX-ist. I think I...

    DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! If you've never read a book in your life, you'd think JP is super smart. That baroque style of writing, those sentences that never end, the constant references to science and philosophy - "how does the man do it!?" you ask yourself. It's simple. The book's ...

    Jordan Peterson may be the only clinical psychologist who believes that psychology is subordinate to philosophy and the one thing that psychology and philosophy both genuflect before is story. Story, or myth, predates religion and is, in fact, as old as language itself. In his earl...

    So there is a lot of wisdom in here about how to live your life: don't blame other people, listen and understand other people's perspectives, be honest even though it's uncomfortable, and don't demonize humanity. And then all the wisdom goes down the toilet in one particular chapte...

    A soothing and seductive balm for the butthurt. I am fascinated by the cult surrounding this man who, as a previous reviewer noted, relies far too much on simplistic interpretations of Biblical stories and the Disney versions of fairy tales to the expense of all else. (I guess Lilith a...

    A book by Jordan Peterson, I won?t be able to do it justice. 12 Rules for Life is a wonderful book. It is typical Peterson with large amounts of insightful information and wit. The book includes information that I knew, did not know, and information I knew but did not know I knew (...

    "Faulty tools produce faulty results." - Jordan B. Peterson, 12 Rules for Life I'm generally not a fan of self-help books and this one would have probably never hit my to-read shelf if a good friend of mine hadn't invited me to attend a live Jordan Peterson lecture in Phoenix a...

    Where have all the genuine intellectuals gone? Christopher Hitchens' death in 2011 left a huge gap that nobody has yet managed to fill, though many have tried. If anything, the absence of a voice like his these past years has shown just what a unique and profound thinker the man wa...

    I cracked it open only to discover a study of the bible and christian religious stories while expecting a book on psychology, deceiving. Didn't finish it. ...

    I?ve highlighted more paragraphs in this book than any that I?ve read in the last? very long time! As should be expected, this is the literary equivalent of a kick up the ass. Like true originals, if you?ve heard him speak before, you?ll find it impossible not to read his ...

    When asked if I would take a leap of faith (pun evident later in review) and read Jordan B. Peterson?s book, I was slightly hesitant. Surely, I could take something away from this and learn how to incorporate it all into my daily life. If not, I would be able to drum up some interest...

    Awfully verbose, incoherent, and hurried text without any content original enough (on top of his online lectures) to grant writing this lengthy book. The rule about telling the truth stands out as a notable exception. ...

    This is a magnificent book. And part of that magnificence comes from the fact that it is ?complete? in the same sense that All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (Fulghum, 1989) was complete. The rules are simple: from ?stand up straight with your shoulders back,? ...

    I was really prepared to pick up this book with an open mind in order to understand what so many people have found compelling about it. After finishing, I have to say that for the most part I am more mystified than when I began. "12 Rules for Life" is technically what its advertised as...

    Far from the banal, "self-help," or, "life-coaching," images this book's title may suggest, psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson has crafted here a series of seemingly blunt and practical suggestions that look, at least superifically, as if they are ideas you and society at large already a...

    12 Rules (whittled down from an original 60 something) is about how to improve how you live. Each rule is explained in detail, and Peterson goes into the meaning of each subject philosophically, psychologically, and using varied examples from life. Although far more accessible, 12 Rule...

    Unlike what the title suggests, 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. At a time where the truth of many opinions are based on the loud voices that preach them an...

    I bought this thinking it was a self-help book - 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 lik...

    First, because of the endless politicization of this man, a couple things to know about me, if you're trying to determine what 'team' I'm on: Stop it. I'm not on a team. I hate teams. I despise identity politics of any kind. Facts are facts and truth is truth regardless of where it...

    Disgustingly boring. Could not, for the life of me, listen more than 25% of the book. I?ve enjoyed talks from Peterson but definitely not this book. I love others books on similar topics but really this book could?ve been condensed. There were too many unnecessary paragraphs and re...

    Keeping it real 100. This is the best self-help book I have read (which doesn't speak much - self-help books are generally terrible). If you need a self-help book, this might not even be a book for you. It is a bit too harsh and "fanatical" for everyday reader. But it is also true. ...

    Best every written self help book. Many thanks to Dr. Jordan for this wonderful and amazing book. This is THE ONLY ONE book (self help) you ever have to read in ,your entire life to live a balanced, peaceful and happy life. Best book since 2000. Love to recommend to everyone, must ...
