Came across this while having a Surf across the Web This Morning,

One Review that struck a Cord:

I took about a month to finish Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, in part because I wanted to slow down and try some of the advice in my life.

12 Rules for Life is an interesting book. Equal parts philosophy, psychology, and self-help book, it covers a broad range of topics, with Peterson drawing from life experiences, religion, and history to build a strong case for his points and provide what seems on its surface to be very good advice for people.

This is where Peterson's background as a clinical psychologist comes in handy. 12 Rules for Life is billed as an "antidote to chaos", and that is what its primary focus is. It's not great at helping you be more successful if you're disciplined and self-reliant already. As someone who always struggled with grasping the world, however, I found it very helpful.

I usually find one or two of the suggestions on these lists etc useful even if only as a passing thought so I will give this a look and listen. I have been aware of Peterson for several months. He was good on BBC Question Time panel just weeks ago and in particular I share his general concern for young men atm and also interested to hear some of his criticism of things going on in Canada (being part Canadian myself).

Last year it was Rachel Kelly offering up her insights around Christmas and the stresses it can bring and who has experience of mental health problems herself and I found that quite good although didn't have the energy to try all of the suggestions. I thanked her directly and was pleasantly surprised when she took the time to email me back.

Learning to play a musical instrument is still top of my own (very short) list - that has helped me enormously.

As for books I am reading, I have made a conscious effort to get back into this habit over the last 12 months (with mixed results) since not touching much after finishing my degree over 10 years ago. I have finally started Mervyn Peake's Gormanghast trilogy and will most likely delve back into history at some point before too long.

santa I was given the above book (by Jordan B Peterson). He is meant to be a celebrated thinker and can be seen on YouTube. I am not impressed by his book.
I just wondered if other people had heard of him, and if so, what are your thoughts.

One of my rules for life is
Don't buy books with 'rules for life' in their title.
Perhaps I should write a book...

The book was a gift. Someone else told me to chuck it on the wood burner, but I decided to read it first. The person who advised to chuck it on the wood burner was correct. It is a really naff book
I would not advise anyone to waste money on this book.

Just sat though the whole session and this is something I really enjoy trying to absorb, although sometimes it all goes a little fast to absorb everything that`s said, but gives a good insight to human nature and psychology. Setting our aims to a reasonable probability and in small increments and to be `better than yesterday` until we start to feel the difference.

Some really good points made too about children at 4 years of age and asking `do other kids want to be around them`? Interesting analogies about Seretonin levels and how low levels can make us feel depressed.

He speaks a lot of sense. Shame such topics are not discussed at an early age or taught to parents. I like learning about becoming more motivational or managing how to deal with situations etc...I think living as many of us do on UC or ESA etc....has a detrimental affect on us from stresses, anxieties, not feeling in control of our lives anymore. Would be good to find a few videos on someone speaking about these and moreso, how to challenge them.

Thanks for posting this Paul, enjoyed it.
