12 Rules for Life review

It’s a controversial book due to Peterson’s public appearances, but the book itself is rather tame in its content (although often dramatic in its tone). It has obvious parts (listen to others, don’t blame other people, toughen up, be honest, take risks, do meaningful things, enjoy life)— it has great and inspirational parts — entertaining parts — bad parts — parts that ramble on for too long— and parts that come from a conservative old man. My parents have given me better books, but 12 Rules for Life is still OK to read.
