Book Review: 12 Rules for Life by Jordan B. Peterson

COMPARE YOURSELF TO WHO YOU WERE YESTERDAY, NOT TO WHO SOMEONE ELSE IS TODAY

I have been following Jordan B. Peterson for awhile now and I was looking forward to reading this book. I wanted to focus on this book and read it rule for rule and understand it all. It is a really useful book to live by and I think everyone can learn something from this as long as you are will to see your own faults.

Synopsis

What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson’s answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research.
