Book review: 12 Rules for Life

Chances are, if you’ve heard the name Jordan Peterson, it wasn’t in a positive context. The Canadian clinical-psychologist-turned-inadvertent-political-icon was thrust into the speculative spotlight after speaking out against an amendment to Canadian Bill C-16, an amendment which, in his eyes, limited the right to free speech. It was about this time as well that he released 12 Rules for Life: ...
