Jordan B Peterson: 12 Rules for Life

By Applied Change


In a world of increasing change and uncertainty, knowing who we are and where we are heading is becoming increasingly important. This book helps to remind us how to find meaning for ourselves amidst the chaos and suffering that defines what it is to be human.

The book takes us through 12 essential lessons, using a combination of ancient wisdom and stories from the past together with the latest thinking in psychology and philosophy. It’s packed full of useful insights, perspectives and a few reminders of things we know already but then routinely forget in the moment. Definitely one to come back to many times.
