A #1 New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller

The long-awaited sequel to 12 RULES FOR LIFE, which has sold over 5 million copies around the world

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

Description

In 12 Rules for Life, acclaimed public thinker and clinical psychologist Jordan B. Peterson offered an antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to modern anxieties. His insights have helped millions of readers and resonated powerfully around the world.
Now in this much-anticipated sequel, Peterson goes further, showing that part of life’s meaning comes from reaching out into the domain beyond what we know, and adapting to an ever-transforming world. While an excess of chaos threatens us with uncertainty, an excess of order leads to a lack of curiosity and creative vitality. Beyond Order therefore calls on us to balance the two fundamental principles of reality – order and chaos ­- and reveals the profound meaning that can be found on the path that divides them.
In times of instability and suffering, Peterson reminds us that there are sources of strength on which we can all draw: insights borrowed from psychology, philosophy, and humanity’s greatest myths and stories. Drawing on the hard-won truths of ancient wisdom, as well as deeply personal lessons from his own life and clinical practice, Peterson offers twelve new principles to guide readers towards a more courageous, truthful and meaningful life.
