#1 national bestselling book 12 Rules for Life: Anecdote to Chaos was written by renowned psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson. It also became an international bestseller.

In this humorous and informative book, Peterson tells us why those who easily criticize will meet a terrible fate, why boys and girls who skateboard must be left alone and why you should always pet a cat whom you meet on the street. He also answers why ancient Egyptians paid close attention to worship as the highest of gods. Peterson also looks into the lowly lobster’s nervous system and tells us the correlation between standing up straight and succeeding in life.
