Peterson Æ 0 Read Ible fate awaits those who criticize too easily and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the streetWhat does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight with our shoulders back and about success in life Why did ancient Egyptians worship the capacity to pay careful attention as the highest of gods What dreadful paths do p. A book by Jordan Peterson I won t be able to do it justice 12 Rules for Life is a wonderful book It is typical Peterson with large amounts of insightful information and wit The book includes information that I knew did not know and information I knew but did not know I knew like a Peterson lecture There are three main points that I took away from this book1 The world is a horrible place filled with suffering If you personally don t suffer someone you know will 2 If you want the world to be betterstart with yourself The individual people start bettering themselves the potential for the world to be just that little bit better increases 3 We should live on the line between order and chaos We need both for a functioning society We need to grow and adapt whilst not getting rid of traditions and traditional structures they might be very important This is a book I would recommend to everyone whether you re familiar with Peterson or not Clean your room and sort yourself out

Faulty tools produce faulty results Jordan B Peterson 12 Rules for LifeI m generally not a fan of self help books and this one would have probably never hit my to read shelf if a good friend of mine hadn t invited me to attend a live Jordan Peterson lecture in Phoenix a little over a week ago June 1 2018 The only other exposure I had to Peterson was a wave of seriously negative posts about him by some of my most liberal friends on FB I was intrigued Here I have some friends who found something of value from him enough to want to share with me also we were using Peterson just as a reason to reconnect AND other friends who absolutely abhorred the man All of this fascinated me I was relatively a tabula rasa on this guy I hadn t even read some of the negative pieces on him I loved people that upended the status uo I loved early Camille Paglia and Andrew Sullivan Now I was curious Was this guy throwing sand into the salad of liberals on purpose Was he just thinking in a way that was uniue and not bounded by usual boundaries So I went and heard him speak I found his lecture like I found his book fascinating It was a mixture of science myth story telling Disney and confidence man bullshit The box I was in had 6 men and 4 women not a bad ratio since a large proportion of Jordan s rabid fan base is white men And when I say rabid I mean foaming at the mouth rabid When he was introduced several men in the crowd grunted like they were prepping for a football game or battle It was a little intense The testosterone in some was uncorked After the show and while reading this book I ve also come across several of his interviews and YouTube videos I think an obvious example of the way Peterson gets misread is the Cathy Newman interview or the recent NYTimes piece These don t do a good job of actually getting to the root of what Jordan Peterson is saying Personally I think 80% of what Peterson is saying is actually NOT bad How can you really argue with ideas like clean your room treat yourself like you are someone you are responsible for helping rule 2 pursue what is meaningful not what is expedient rule 7 or tell the truth or at least don t lie rule 8 A lot of what he says makes sense But it is the last 20% of what he says that kind of drives me nuts and I m a white man I can imagine that womenminoritiesuniversity intellectuals would feel a bit stronger than me His critiues of feminism white privilege post modernism modern universities etc aren t narrow and tend to violate his own rule 10 be precise in your speech He rambles rages and makes pretty big assumptions on areas that are far from well established and often a bit beyond his areas of expertiseMy other issue with Peterson that was clarified in the lecture than the book is he is actually seeking the role of secular prophetrevivalistguru Hell in his introduction is basically admitted that the book s subjects were basically market tested on the internet People like lists They really like certainty Many of the population Peterson was aiming at aren t familiar with mythsJungian archetypesphilosophy so it becomes easier to use Disney movies Why not tell your audience what to do in a nice list of 12 things Like Steven R Covey on confrontational steroids Dr Peterson walked around the Comerica stage and riffed on one of his rules mostly Rule 10 in Phoenix and a dash of Rule 11 Like the text of his book he circled around repeating stories and points declare something true or false making a joke and then absolved his mainly white male audience from some of their social guilt and anxiety They loved him for it He was Jimmy Swaggart in Canadian professor garb Because it is hard to define white privilege it doesn t exist so ignore it Rinse and repeat for feminism and other issues plaguing our modern culture and often aimed at privilege money or power It was wild seeing white single men showing up to this even wearing t shirts with his picture on it It must be hard to not let that kind of cultish adoration go to your head even if your background is the human head

DON T WASTE YOUR TIME If you ve never read a book in your life you d think JP is super smart that baroue style of writing the never ending sentences all those references to science and philosophy how does the man do it you ask yourselfIt s simple The book s actually rubbish but you have nothing to compare it with Nov 2018 Since this review is getting traction please note that these were my impressions right after plodding through this dull book and I m not going to waste my time dismantling his pseudo scientific rubbish many other reviewers have some ualified than me Seek them out If you re willing to be skeptical about my review then use that skepticism to read JP s critics tooNevertheless I do have some recommendations for 12 books you should read instead Moving on This book s riddled with logical errors Facts are ignored and substituted with analogies that simply don t work and don t make sense Major philosophers are completely misrepresented and molded to fit his ideas Entire sub chapters are filled with complicated and ultimately pointless mythological and philosophical references And everything is peppered with common sense statements and citation marks to give it the illusion that it s factual accurate and logical It s not Don t get me started on how bad the writing is It s like he has a paid thesaurus subscription and wants to get his money s worth Nobody cares about your rich vocabulary if you lose the point on the wayYou could spend hours upon hours digging for problems with this book Some actually have done that There was a guy on YouTube who made a one hour video dissecting the problems with the citations alone Yeah it s that easy to poke holes in his ramblings He blames postmodernism for a lot of things but he misrepresents it He uotes Heidegger but it s clear he has no clue what Heidegger s been talking about It s boring and uninspired But JP fans will love it He s got his die hard fans who will continue to follow him no matter what regardless of how bad his ideas are especially since there s no other conservative smart ass to get behind insteadSo don t bother He doesn t say anything new and what he does say is said poorly Not too different from his videos For the sake of your time and brain just read something else Anything from Chomsky to Zizek Read Pinker Friedman Harari Fukuyama Gladwell Have some respect for yourself even fantasy books would be a better use of your time and brain Or just read the stoics and the existentialists instead I mean if you just want someone to tell you to stand up straight and make your bed read Meditations by Emperor Marcus Aurelius Or Seneca Or Sartre Or heck even Dr Seuss Responses to replies I ll probably get Haha suck it you triggered SJW I m not mad that JP is writing books I m mad that such a bad book is getting attention and is wasting people s timeJP is the man you just can t appreciate his genius He s not he is the very definition of a pseudo intellectual There are so many other public intellectuals that are smarter better spoken and respected than JPYou don t know suat he taught at Harvard He was an associate for a few years a long time ago So Look at him now when nobody in his university wants to be associated with him What does that tell you How can you call that a respected academicThis isn t real criticism It s really not I don t care enough about this to write a 2500 word essay on him I m reading some better books right now But even my rambling makes sense than his lobster analogy
