Book Review: 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson: A guide to meaning in the modern world

It can be hard for busy professionals to find the time to read the latest books. Stay up to date in a fraction of the time with this concise guide.

Jordan Peterson’s 2018 international bestseller 12 Rules for Life is one of the most talked-about nonfiction books of recent years. It takes as its starting point Peterson’s belief that, by rejecting tradition and mythology, modern Western society is missing out on much wisdom that could give meaning to life. His book is an antithesis to the emptiness of much contemporary thought, with a series of 12 concrete, clearly articulated principles that have the power to increase our sense of responsibility for our own lives and enable us to find a sense of purpose in an increasingly chaotic world. With millions of copies sold to date and translations into numerous languages, the book’s message has resonated with readers around the world and cemented Peterson’s position as one of the West’s leading public intellectuals.

This book review and analysis is perfect for: 
•Students of psychology
•Anyone looking for a sense of meaning in an often-chaotic world
•Anyone looking to understand the myths that shape our existence
