Description

This program includes an introduction read by the author.

A fascinating biography and in-depth look at the work of best-selling writer and psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson, by award-winning author Jim Proser.

Who is psychologist, professor, best-selling author, and YouTube personality Dr. Peterson? What does he believe in? Who are his followers? And why is he so controversial? These are among the many questions raised in this compelling, exhaustively researched account of his life - from Peterson’s early days as a religious-school student in small-town Canada to his tenure at Harvard to his headline-making persona of the present day.

In Savage Messiah, we meet an adolescent Peterson who, scoffing at the "fairy tales" being taught in his confirmation class, asks his minister how it’s possible to believe the Bible in light of modern scientific theory. Unsatisfied with the answer he’s been given, Peterson goes on to challenge other authority figures who stood in his way as he dared to define the world in his own terms. This won Peterson many enemies and more admirers than he could have dreamed of, particularly during the digital era, when his nontraditional views could be widely shared and critically discussed. Still, a fall from grace was never far behind.

Peterson had always preached the importance of free speech, which he believed was essential to finding life-saving personal meaning in our frequently nihilistic world. But when he dismissed Canadian parliament Bill C-16, one that compelled the use of newly-invented pronouns to address new gender identities, Peterson found himself facing a whole new world. Students targeted him as a gender bigot. Conservatives called him their hero. Soon, Peterson was fixed firmly at the center of the culture wars - and there was no turning back.

With exclusive interviews of Dr. Peterson, as well as conversations with his family, friends, and associates, this audiobook reveals the heart and mind, teachings and practices, of one of the most provocative voices of our time.

Well worth the read

It seemed to start slow but the issues he bravely addressed....because he knows he is right....makes you want to complete this read for such a time as we are in now! Narration was fine but I was able to set read speed at plus 25%...and completed in about a week of commutes. Take a few notes here; learn to be a thinker and an educated layman prepared for blunting today's depraved leftist ideologies. Your kids are depending on it...they just don't know it yet.

If you've followed Jordan, this book isn't needed

Very well done book highlighting Jordans achievements and putting together a useful timeline. If you're familiar with him then this book is just added information, but if you're not this is a great way to get caught up about him.

Best book I've heard on Audible

Dr Jordan Peterson is a traditionalist. It doesn't matter if you favor the left or the right, Dr Peterson gives you mindful insights into how we became so divided and, perhaps, a way out of this mess. Best book I have ever purchased on Audible.

JBP

I guess the issue I had with this book was the authors need to attempt to fit JBP into the American political structure. I believe In doing so he missed showing why so many people see’s JBP as someone who awaking their true self. If it that was helping people understand the reason for religion or just how to think beyond the emotion of their life’s problems.

good portrayal of a great man

Follows a lot along the lines of 12 rules. JBP is such an honest open man that this book doesn't offer much new information.

THANK YOU! Hearing Jordan Petersons Story Saved my

Hearing Jordan Petersons story has help to save my sanity during a very tumultuous period in my life. On January 8th of 2018 I was swore in as a city councilman and started asking questions in a small town in Kansas. That's led me down a path of unfathomable truth about the reality of corruption in government and the socialism machine. Jordan Petersons story has given me strength to keep going when I've lost nearly everything my business and more recently my girlfriend and son.

Amazing

I learned a lot about Jordan Peterson, a man I really respect. Some parts of this book were hard to read, but from the difficult subject matter, not the way it was presented; ultimately, it was worth the effort.
