'One of the most important thinkers to emerge on the world stage for many years' SpectatorWhat are the most valuable things that everyone should know? Acclaimed clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson has influenced the modern understanding of personality, and now he has become one of the world's most popular public thinkers, with his lectures on topics from the Bible to romantic relationships to mythology drawing tens of millions of viewers. In an era of unprecedented change and polarizing politics, his frank and refreshing message about the value of individual responsibility and ancient wisdom has resonated around the world.In this book, he provides twelve profound and practical principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticising others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today. Happiness is a pointless goal, he shows us. Instead we must search for meaning, not for its own sake, but as a defence against the suffering that is intrinsic to our existence. Drawing on vivid examples from the author's clinical practice and personal life, cutting edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity's oldest myths and stories, 12 Rules for Life offers a deeply rewarding antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

  1. Självhjälp för den som inte alltid behöver hjälp
    Emanuel Berenett, 23 juli 2018

    JBP ger dig simpla regler som är enkla att förstå och verkar självklara. Men detta är regler som ofta glöms bort just av den anledningen. De förklaringarna bakom reglerna slår rot i allt från grundläggande religiösa värderingar till hierarkin bland humrar. Jag vet det låter underligt. Men lita på mig, läs denna boken. Den kommer hjälpa dig oavsett hur nöjd du är med din situation!

  2. Grymt bra läsning, men

    Med två ord: Väldigt intressant

    I flera ord: Objektivt tycker jag boken är väldigt naturligt skriven. Intresanta jämförelser och observationer för fåglar och sammanhang mellan gamla filosofer och dagens händelser, medan exemplen han tar upp om hans barndomsvänner och familj ger boken en väldigt levande och nästan kärleksfull känsla. Det som gör att jag inte vill ge den 5 är att vissa delar blir överdrivet matigt gällande kristendomens och hur den format västvärlden, vilket är intres... Läs hela recensionen

  3. Överskattad...
    Tomislav Tommi Djukin, 22 mars 2018

    ...och på tok för predikande för min smak. Uppskattade och respekterade några visdomsord men när han kopplar många av sina teorier till kristendome så tonade jag ut och slutade lyssna.
