12 Rules for Life by Jordan B. Peterson

We’re living through chaotic times, but to find meaning and order in life, Peterson says there are 12 rules we should all follow. These rules are inspired by religion, philosophy, mythology, and history, as well as cutting-edge scientific research. In 12 Rules for Life, he outlines exactly what they are and argues why making the decision to be honest is so important.

Advice ranges from how good posture can help you win in life to why you should compare yourself to your past achievements, and not to others.

“To stand up straight with your shoulders back is to accept the terrible responsibility of life, with eyes wide open. It means deciding to voluntarily transform the chaos of potential into the realities of habitable order.”
Jordan B. Peterson

Beyond Order by Jordan B. Peterson

Want more rules to live by? Peterson’s follow-up book Beyond Order outlines 12 more rules to help you navigate modern life. This time, the rules are designed to help you find the balance between order and chaos — as too much of either one can be a bad thing.

Peterson draws from well-known stories like Shakespeare’s Hamlet and Peter Pan, as well as experiences from his own life, to explain his points.

“That which you most need to find will be found where you least wish to look.”
Jordan B. Peterson

Maps of Meaning by Jordan B. Peterson

Maps of Meaning draws mainly from mythology as Peterson dives into what ancient stories can teach us about modern-day life and everyday struggles.

He covers what the science of neuropsychology knows about how our brains work, and how tales from religion, ancient civilizations, and well-known fables are more than just stories — they can help us find meaning in an ever-changing world.

“The purpose of life, as far as I can tell… is to find a mode of being that’s so meaningful that the fact that life is suffering is no longer relevant.”
Jordan B. Peterson
