Publisher's Summary

Book Summary | 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos 

If you have been looking for an antidote to the sometimes inexplicable chaos in life, then look no further!

The book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, by Jordan B. Peterson gives us the valuable insights into the forces we know as Order and Chaos. Order represents structure, knowledge, and certainty, while Chaos stands for possibilities, the unknown and sometimes anarchy. One cannot exist without the other and we are the ones who must try to make sense of both in life.

The 12 Rules enumerated in the book are just the practical blueprint required for someone to not only make sense of order and chaos, but to embrace it in everyday living and foster your development into a better person. The Rules will lead you to look deep and reflect on how you are actually able to overcome limitations and become someone with a more rewarding and meaningful life.

This book holds a detailed, comprehensive summary of the original book by Jordan Peterson and it succinctly collates all the important facts into easy-to-remember points for quick and effective understanding of the original work, so that you can hit the ground running and start to see the benefits from 12 Rules for Life in the shortest possible time!

Good info.

Good info. For me personally, the religious arguments were off-putting as I was abused with religion for decades. So impressive!

Simply brilliant.

Peterson is able to describe so well what people, particularly men, seek and need out of life. If you like this book, check out some of his lectures on YouTube. Simply brilliant.

It’s intense!

I finished listening to the book last night and started over at the beginning this morning. It’s intense and a lot to think about. It also explains why adults are always telling children too to!

Make it so worth it.

I had to restart chapters a couple of times because of his high vocabulary and not paying enough attention, lessons at end of every chapter make it so worth it.

Listen to it.

It took a minute to understand what he was getting at in the first chapter, but once it hit it hit hard and I was addicted to it. I put my weekend on hold and I binge listened to this book. I made up every reason possible to be able to listen to it.

Listen to it.

There’s more knowledge, wisdom, and utility written in this book than the cumulative amount of overpriced and overvalued university textbooks in my garage. Listen to it.

Phenomenal book.

This book is better as an audiobook. It is narrated by the author himself, and he wrote it the way he speaks. Phenomenal book. A great guide!

All the more motivating.

Life-changing book. It isn't your standard self-help book. He doesn't make you feel good about yourself, which makes it all the more motivating.

A life-changing book!

This could be a life-changing book for many people. It’s obvious that Peterson has put a lot of thought and effort into it and his background expertise lends itself well to the subject matter. I highly recommend this to anyone. Young or old. Especially new parents!
