12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos (New Revision and Analysis) (Paperback)
Jordan Peterson, a renowned clinical psychologist who has shaped the modern understanding of personality, has emerged as one of the world's most popular public thinkers, with his lectures attracting tens of millions of viewers. His lecture topics range from the Bible and romantic relationships to mythology. His straightforward and invigorating message on the need of personal responsibility and ancient wisdom has resounded all around the world at an era of extraordinary upheaval and divided politics.
His twelve principles for a fulfilling existence range from "putting one's own house in order" to "judging oneself by what one was yesterday, rather than what one is today." He demonstrates why seeking happiness is fruitless. Instead, we must seek significance not as an end in itself but as a means of protecting ourselves from the inevitable pain of living.
A deeply rewarding antidote to the chaos in our lives, 12 Rules for Life applies eternal truths to our modern problems with the help of vivid examples from the author's clinical practice and personal life as well as the latest in psychology and philosophy and the wisdom of humanity's oldest myths and stories.
