User reviews about this book
Why is this controversial?
By Lobach Family
Dr. Peterson is a phenomenal communicator with immense credibility from decades as a clinical psychologist. Nothing he says is outrageous or even radical. He essentially empowers the individual with advice and confidence born from common sense. Certain “journalists” who have tried to misrepresent Peterson as some kind of right-wing, callous monster are the real villains of this story. I highly recommend reading, watching, or listening for yourself and making your own judgements.

For real just read it. The new bible
Such a slow build on the topic.
Life Changing Book
This will go down as one of the greatest books of my lifetime.
How to Embrace Your Inner Pre-Reptilian, Darwinian Tao
By Didus Solitarius
As insightful and readable as this book is, both whimsical and well-developed it nevertheless makes two great metaphysical assumptions which are not sufficiently explored: first, that the “yin and yang” philosophy or religion of Taoism is true, second, that it is the fundamental “rule” which governs all of biology and evolution. To his credit the author makes many interesting correlations between that philosophy and various naturalistic observations, but like all extreme naturalism and religion it ends at the fundamental assumptions about reality that it makes which are not explicitly examined on a philosophical level. The result is a kind of naturalistic spiritism, a guru imparting his self-help wisdom, rather than a detached academic survey of research and data, though much data is integrated into the belief system itself.
Overall it is an enjoyable and thought-provoking read, but the dictum of Hume lingers ever in the background, never explicitly addressed as a counter-argument, namely that it is logically improper and inconsistent to derive an “ought” from “is.”
I loved it!
Worthwhile, but Wordy
Boy, is it wordy !
In support of inner strength.
I have an inner mantra that I start meditation with. I go through 24 life values. They occasionally are refined as nothing is so ordered that it can’t improve. They relate to levels in time and space within my being: spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical.
When my cat Yoda passed, I was devastated. I sat in a chair and closed my eyes. I was empty except for a vision of my values which held me together. It was a complete surprise.
Your 12 Rules seem much like my values.
I loved your book. It gave me some introspective motion with more inner light.
Fantastic book will change your life!
Best book ever
This is the only book I immediately re-read after finishing it. It was even better the second time through.
