Description

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of 12 Rules for Life, written and read by Jordan B. Peterson.

What 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 polarising 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 12 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 his clinical practice and personal life, cutting-edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity's oldest myths and stories, Peterson takes the listener on an intellectual journey like no other. Gripping, thought-provoking and deeply rewarding, 12 Rules for Life offers an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

Fantastic, made me weep!

The book being read by Jordan Peterson was ideal for his tone and emphasis! Five stars aren't enough!

Complete disrespect of my time

I couldn't get past the second rule, the rules themselves may be useful and really good but the author has a way to communicate them that really makes it hard to stay focused and willing to keep listening.

First, it is waaaaaaaay too long, I feel like every chapter could be shortened at least 10 times. The author has no respect for the listener time.
Second, the explanations and context seem completely off-topic, it takes dozens of minutes between the beginning of a chapter on a given rule and the moment when the author finally makes a connection between what he's saying and the rule itself.
Third, in the 2h49mns I have listened to, I feel like the author has talked about God/Christianity for half of that time. All of second rule seems to be based on this topic, this is completely unacceptable. In no way does God/Christianity belong in any "scientific" book, if you really want to use God/Christianity to make a point, make it really quick. I don't need nor want to hear about Adam and Eve for 30minutes straight like in this book, this is nonsense.

A masterpiece

I have discovered things I didn't know I knew, such a masterpiece of enlightenment read by the author himself, transfering his own emotions directly through your ears without a middleman. A genuine knowledge.

Must read

A really good book, well written. Both for men and women seeking to improve their life and understand some of the roots of Western culture. But a bit repetitive when you read it.

A timely book - thinking with a Nietzschean Hammer

Würden Sie 12 Rules for Life noch mal anhören? Warum?

I'm going to listen to some of the chapters of Petersons book. The rules about "Rule 1: Stand up straight with your shoulders back" and "Rule 5: Do not let your children do anything, that makes you dislike them." are probably those that I will listen to once more. Not that the other chapters are no good, but those two advices and the information accompanying them, where those that I feel are the most relevant to me.
I've seen several of the lectures of Jordan B Peterson on his Youtube-channel, and there is a lot material, phrases and themes that are recurring in this book. It doesn't bother me, because they bear repeating. I've primarily been taken in by his lectures on personality, where I learned new things, to me, about e.g. the Big Five.
I've been surprised to what extent he is steeped in the existentialist thinking - I've seen that he has does lectures, but I haven't watched them.
His thinking is an amalgam of Jungian, Existentialist and Psychological thinking, where he also draws from literary sources, in particular Dostojevski and Solstjenetzyn.
On the negative side, I must admit that his many excursions in to Jungian thinking, and his interpretations of Biblical Motives leaves me unconvinced. I might give Jung a chance in a near future to see if I've been wrong about him as a thinker, but I wrote him off many years ago.
Where I find Peterson at his best and most timely is on his insistence, that that there are some prevalent misconceptions at the moment about the sexes, childrearing, equality etc. Ideas that are not helpful, but rather hurtful and a hindrance in the pursuit of meaningful lives.
Finally I was surprised and moved by the story about his daughter's plight.
Jordan B Peterson is a timely writer for these times. A psychologist with a Nietzschean Hammer for a pen, megaphoning out thoughts and truths about men, women, sex, children, the left, the meaning of life and existence.

Gute Übersicht über Dr. Petersons Philosophie

Würden Sie 12 Rules for Life noch mal anhören? Warum?

Das Buch ist für jeden geeignet, der sich mit den Themen Sinn des Lebens und Moral auseinandersetzen will. Dabei ist es kein klassisches Selbsthilfebuch mit trivialen Einsichten sondern ehr eine Erleuterung und Aktualisierung der Werte des Abendlandes. Prof. Jordan Peterson verbindet dabei kompetent philosophie und religiöse Tradition mit fundierten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen aus Psychologie und Biologie.Das Buch ist eine Fortführung der Philosophie von Prof. Jordan Peterson, für mich ist es eine etwas einfacher zugängliche Version von Maps of Meaning. Für Fans von Prof. Jordan Peterson gibt es nicht so viel Neues, jedoch ist es kompakter zusammen gefasst als seine ehr losen Vorträge und Vorlesungen auf Youtube.Gelesen wird das Buch von Prof. Jordan Peterson selbst. Er hat sicherlich keine klassische Radiostimme, aber aus meiner Sicht ist es am authentischten ihn selber zu hören.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Insgesamt eine große Empfehlung!

Useful advice, drowned in unhelpful rants.

I am actually quite fond of Mr Peterson as a live speaker. But this is a book and not a podcast. He has spent little to no effort focusing, pruning and structuring the content of this book, resulting in an honestly mediocre book. This book is written in two modes. One delivers solid advice from an experienced psychologist and backs it up with a bit of science. That's 10% of the book. The remaining 90% of the book are the ramblings of your demented psychologist uncle. As soon as the advice has been laid down, he launches nonsensically on all directions. You can expect embarrassing attempts at poetry, bible study, rants about his favourite novelists, rants about his hatred of communism etc. While it all fits the bleak tone of the book, very little of that actually connects to the advice and is more like random things that he wanted to get out of his chest. Mr Peterson mentions at some point that there is a one-page version of his 12 rules, containing just the rules. You should find that list instead, and save 15 hours of life.

Listen/read only a few pages at a time

Peterson wrote this like a religious book. Repitition is common in a few segments of this book. This can be very annoying if listened to in long sessions. The ending part has a really weird amendments vibe to it, where peterson asks himself questions which he answers himself in a very theatralic way, almost as if god spoke to him. It's a solid book but bloated and at points close to religiously theatralic and vague.

Little Life-Philosophy

Started interesting with big dramatugically pattern of Chaos and order. But transformed in a book containing simple and useless hints about Children and Pets. I am really bored and will Hive it back.

This book is life changing and enlightening!

Every young person from generation Y and Z should read this book! We live in nihilistic times that force us to reevaluate why things we used to do might be important and why we shouldn't just randomly cast aside things that have established themselves through evolution itself. Read this, this book will help anyone understand themselves and the world better.

the harsh truth of life mixed with the best advice

I wish someone had told me, what Dr. JP wrote in this book many years ago.
subconsciously I knew 70% of what he said, but it's a whole different thing hearing them, in such detail and honesty.
The examples used ( Bible verses ) might be a bit repetitive, but always on point with the topic.
Really looking forward to the audio version of "Maps of meaning"
thank you Dr. Jordan B. Peterson for making society great again.

Amazing book

Jordan Peterson is hands down one of the greatest minds of our time.
This must be the best book I've ever read in my life.
