About this item


About the Book

"As a follow-up to 12 Rules for Life, the author provides twelve additional rules related to the overarching theme of how the dangers of too much security and control might be profitably avoided"--

Book Synopsis

The companion volume to 12 Rules for Life offers further guidance on the perilous path of modern life.

In 12 Rules for Life, clinical psychologist and celebrated professor at Harvard and the University of Toronto Dr. Jordan B. Peterson helped millions of readers impose order on the chaos of their lives. Now, in this bold sequel, Peterson delivers twelve more lifesaving principles for resisting the exhausting toll that our desire to order the world inevitably takes.

In a time when the human will increasingly imposes itself over every sphere of life--from our social structures to our emotional states--Peterson warns that too much security is dangerous. What's more, he offers strategies for overcoming the cultural, scientific, and psychological forces causing us to tend toward tyranny, and teaches us how to rely instead on our instinct to find meaning and purpose, even--and especially--when we find ourselves powerless.

While chaos, in excess, threatens us with instability and anxiety, unchecked order can petrify us into submission. Beyond Order provides a call to balance these two fundamental principles of reality itself, and guides us along the straight and narrow path that divides them.

Review Quotes


"We live in a time when so many young (and not so young) people feel lost . . . Mr. Peterson talks about the attitudes that will help find the path. It is not a politically correct or officially approved path, but it is an intensely practical and yet heightened one: This life you're living has meaning."
--PEGGY NOONAN, Wall Street Journal

"Jordan Peterson is universally revered--and feared--for his incredible intellect and emotional insight."
--DAVE RUBIN, host of The Rubin Report and author of Don't Burn This Book

"The Peterson way is a harsh way, but it is an idealistic way--and for millions of young men, it turns out to be the perfect antidote to the cocktail of coddling and accusation in which they are raised."
--DAVID BROOKS, New York Times

"The world needs Jordan Peterson."
--DOUGLAS MURRAY, author of The Madness of Crowds

this guy is awesome. I don't enjoy it as much as his last, but it is still 5 stars. I'm enjoying chapters 8&9 immensely at the moment (relistening to the 8th with my dad as I read the 9th). I will say he could do a way better job with references in this book. very dissapointing. but it's ok! the world needs JBP. ❤️

Obviously the person who gave this book 1 star didn't even read it. If you don't know who Peterson is, read his books and hear him speak before forming an opinion. This is exactly what I did as a female who only heard negative things about him and discovered I was only being fed lies. The ones who talk trash about him are people that do not want to take any responsibility for their lives and expect the rest of us to take care of them and their burden while they cry about being "victims". Take control of your life and accept your responsibility, learn to accept the burden of Being. What does it say about a person that rejects self-improvement or doesn't view these ideas as a good thing? Improving yourself not only benefits you but also everyone around you. That's a great thing! If you are critical of Jordan B. Peterson, then you are critical of becoming a better person. PERIOD.

We got the first one, of course we got the second. Certain books have their targeted readers. Don't insert your political views to mislead the ratings.

Good book, many people will give it poor reviews without reading it because of political opinions.

Important work and a pleasure to read. Sales will once again speak volumes, as will the crying, whining, and attempts to cancel from ideology obsessed anger addicts.

Watched a lecture where JP went over these rules, and I’m more than pumped to learn about them.
