Notes From Your Bookseller

The sequel to the mega-bestseller 12 Rules for Life. More life advice blending psychology, ethics, religion and mythology. Peterson continues his exploration of the ever-present tension we face as we search for meaning in our lives. How can we advance the good in society while helping ourselves? Can we create order out of chaos? Will the pursuit of order and control help or hinder our growth? Beyond Order teaches us how we can live and deal with these tensions. In a time, full of challenges to our moral code, we could all use a little direction.

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.
