Product description

Review

A sui generis kind of personal trainer for the soul.... It's a good thing that there's space on the self-help shelves for a book as bracingly pessimistic as this one... Peterson offers an invaluable reminder that we're finite and inherently imperfect -- Oliver Burkeman ― Guardian (Book of the Week)

Full of sensible, humane advice, and shows he is still very much on top... The book is a validation of his own role; as he observes, being able to articulate what many people instinctively feel but can't articulate is a valuable role for a public intellectual -- Melanie McDonagh ― Evening Standard

Most immediately interesting for its account of what happened to the author in the past year... All this is related with remarkable equanimity... The book contains the most lucid and touching prose Peterson has written -- James Marriott ― The Times

In telling us that life is suffering (as all major religions do) and that the goal is to find meaning rather than happiness, he does have something to say. ... wisdom combined with good advice. Peterson is at his best when telling stories of his clinical practice - he comes across as an empathetic non-judgmental listener -- Suzanne Moore ― Telegraph

More trenchant life advice from the bestselling author of 12 Rules for Life... bound to be a bestseller ― The Times

Reliably thought-provoking, often engrossing ... Peterson has a sharp eye for the vagaries of human nature, and he can be a compelling storyteller, especially when narrating his own experiences and those he has observed from life. There is a fair amount of wisdom in Beyond Order, of the kind that used to be called common sense -- Jenny McCartney ― UnHerd

For a generation that has lost its faith in religion and politics, Peterson is one of notably few prominent figures willing to confront the most fundamental questions of existence: What's the point of being alive? What kind of personal journey endows our existence with meaning? -- Helen Lewis ― The Atlantic

Part quest, part adventure, part lecture and part polemic... There's masses of passion, masses of wisdom and a deep, deep yearning for us all to seek the beauty, truth and meaning Peterson has sometimes glimpsed and is desperate for us to find. He has had tens of thousands of letters from people who say he has helped them to find it. How many writers can say they have done that? -- Christina Patterson ― Sunday Times

[Peterson is] enlightening as a clinical psychologist... Peterson's rules are an attempt to locate people within society, to acknowledge the systems and structures that have long existed and, instead of seeking to tear them down, encourage his readers to find their most functional position within them -- Andrew Anthony ― Observer

Beyond Order showcases Peterson's extraordinary gift for storytelling, as well as for extrapolating complex psychological themes and deriving lessons and meaning from them in ways lay readers can understand... A delight to read... Peterson is a world class communicator... Beyond Order is a compelling and ultimately life-affirming read for anyone willing to challenge their own ideas and face up to the untapped potential in their lives -- Greg Jameson ― Entertainment Focus

Gratitude, he says, is "something in which you can discover part of the antidote to the abyss and the darkness". As I read this last line, I found myself saying "amen". And I realised what Jordan Peterson really is. He has suffered more than most of us. He has seen the abyss. And he has emerged from it not a top public intellectual but a highly driven, intelligent, complex and deservedly successful preacher -- Lucy Kellaway ― Financial Times

In an age of moral relativism, here is a father figure who takes his audience seriously. And here is a grander narrative about truth, being, order and chaos that stretches back to the dawn of human consciousness -- Johanna Thomas-Corr ― New Statesman

[Beyond Order] has psychological value and if you want homespun common sense that is mixed with the wisdom of the ages then this is the book for you. The 12 new rules are clearly laid out with a mix of literature, mythology, philosophy, religion and psychology used to support the significance of each... It's worth reading to equip you to live a more purposeful and a more meaningful life -- Stella O’Malley ― Irish Independent

'With Beyond Order, Jordan Peterson has given us an astonishingly illuminating look at the human condition. Rule by rule, he digs into the cornerstones of our psyche and culture as he seeks to explain why we behave the way we do' -- Hannah Gal ― Quillette

Peterson is a deep thinker with tremendous powers of articulation and a captivating sense of wonder. A master storyteller, he draws on a multitude of sources, including his personal life, clinical practice and long marriage to enlighten readers about the fundamentals of human behavior and our civilization. Beyond Order is a call for action and self-improvement. It is a mind-blowing journey where the lessons learnt are lessons for life ― The Jerusalem Post

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 March 2021
I'm so excited that JBP is well again and back with more excellent advice. I particularly like rule 11 on not letting resentment and anger get the best of you, but all of it seems very useful.

My only complaint, and nothing to do with the book itself, is the shabby and torn condition it arrived in. Amazon delivery quality seems to be getting much worse these days, particularly for books. Maybe someone in the Amazon warehouse doesn't like the popularity of JBP's books?

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back, sir!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 March 2021
I've just been delivered the book, opened it and stumbled upon this: "To my wife, Tammy, whom I have loved deeply for fifty years, and who is admirable, IN MY ESTIMATION, in all regards, and beyond all reason."

This single paragraph captures the essence of Mr. Peterson's personality and work, a man capable of more empathy than his "haters" would like to admit, a man who is precise in his speech, who chooses his words carefuly and who puts reason even into a praise to his wife!

Reading about the book's chapters it seems that this is "another self help book that teaches the OBVIOUS", as JBP's critics have called "12 Rules for Life", but if "the obvious" would've been easily achievable, Mr. Peterson would not hold lectures all over the world explaining it, produce much more content than one can follow and now write a second book about "the obvious".

Therefore, I'm grateful for Mr. Peterson's effort, and not only for writing this book, but for everything that he does in helping people straightening their lives.
