Help and inspiration oozes from this book. Thank you Dr Peterson
How are there so many 5s....
As a counselor, a lot of the concepts that he teaches in this book are old news. I found myself bored listening to him explain concepts ad nauseam. The amount of Christianity in the book is annoying, as it is used as the basis for many of his concepts. I couldn’t connect to this. I grew resentful as the book went on, wondering why I invested so much time into a lackluster book. I don’t need to be reminded how much suffering is in the world over and over again. Would not recommend.
I will say that this has been a refreshing book to read. Dr. Peterson is definitely a genius and it shows in this book. An educated man who is always learning and never willing to come to a place that he will not learn anything else is a rarity in academia. This desire for truth instead of ideology shows and is what I really enjoyed even when it crossed my own ideas.
When I initially got this book I expected it to be at least decent. I was very happy to realize it was a well thought out, well organized, and written in a way that makes it approachable. It was a good read and I highly recommend it.
Absolutely great book. I was touched by the author’s sensivity and depth of analysis about important issues related to our daily lives. Very well written and will keep in my library for reference for many many years. Thank you.
Surprised so many people liked this book. Love his talks but this book is terrible.
This book is the single most authoritative fusion of ancient wisdom and contemporary social challenges we face today. This masterpiece synthesizes individual and collective interests in one cohesive work. A must read.
