Review of 12 Rules for Life by Jordan Peterson


I like the concept of this book, but I think it failed to live up to its own promise.

There’s no denying that Jordan Peterson has an incredible mind. This book is filled with an overload of proof of his mental ability, and there’s plenty that is really useful. It could be said that there might even be too much information. In fact, that is where my problem lies with this book.

Here, Jordan Peterson promises 12 Rules for Life, and delivers on that promise with his chapter titles. Unfortunately, the content of those chapters is only tangentially connected with those titles.
