Great summary

Great summary of the book. The reason for the 3 star rating is that the book was supposed to include a pdf version too and that was not included.

Listen to sample first

Narrator was a machine. Made it very hard to actually listen and appreciate what the book had to say.

Content is good the monotone voice is untenable

I had to stop listening due to the monotone voice. It must be computer generated. I checked this book in for the full length version. Too bad.

Excellent material for a much better life.

This will make your life so much better. Why aren't we thought this in school? Research: prussian education system and the true meaning of the work anarchy. Oh and buy bitcoin if you care about yourself ;)

It's not brilliant

Peterson does not say anything new just stuff that's common knowledge repackaged in his own unique presentation. The performance is so boring it was like listening to a robot.

It opens up a path of hope for people

This is where the book is so valuable. It opens up a path of hope for people who want their lives to improve and to have meaning. The rules Jordon Peterson outlines make perfect sense once he has finished explaining to them many listeners will wonder why they didn't previously see what was staring them in the face. These rules are particularly helpful to young men and women commencing their adult lives. These rules clarify what may have only been perceived dimly or not at all.

His book provides excellent insights

As a retired teacher myself, I nominate Jordan Peterson as Teacher of the Year. His book provides excellent insights into the challenges and problems of ordinary people like you and me who are struggling to make sense of the world and to cope with its incidents and trials.

Words became even more apparent

The value and truth to Dr. Peterson's words became even more apparent when I recently made contact with two colleagues I had not seen for several years. One of these people was raised in the lap of luxury, attended Ivy League schools and had all the advantages many dream of. Due to the recent death of her parents, she is quite wealthy. The other was raised in a divorced home with few economic advantages and struggled mightily due to his economic circumstances.

Another reference list to enhance your life

Oh God, said a close friend when he saw me listening to this book, "yet another reference list to enhance your life". True that. But unlike many other books that give us all guidance for how to live our lives, Dr. Peterson backs his "rules" with research and logic. But above all, Dr. Peterson's main lesson here - your behavior and attitude play a monumental role in how good your life will be - with a huge focus on self-responsibility for our own well being and happiness. Taking this one step further, if we all took more responsibility for our own behavior and attitude then the world would be a much better place.

Certain way in a different situation

The things he says would have made my parents say "duh!" as they were raising me, but much of this common sense has been lost lately. He doesn't just tell you why children act a certain way in a different situation, but also why, from a psychological viewpoint, they should and need to grow up self-sufficient.

He is wonderful to learn from!

If you are interested in this book, firstly, buy and listen to it! Secondly, go to YouTube and look for any videos or long-form podcasts that Jordan takes part in. In my opinion, he is much more comprehensible in live formats than an explanation, and he is wonderful to learn from!

This book is great I feel Jordan Peterson

Although this book is great I feel Jordan Peterson is a bit lacking in his ability to write in a more comprehensive form to help others better understand his writing. However I think this is both a positive and a negative about how I believe he tries to choose his words very carefully due to how his outspoken minority in opposition to his philosophical ideology (mostly the far left and globalist's) have either attempted to slander him, or simply aggressively oppose him with I'll intentions.
