Jordan Peterson shot to fame a few years ago because of the gender and pronoun controversy. As a professor, he was living a quiet life until he refused to memorize different pronouns for different students.
Many interviews and several best-selling books later, Peterson now works with Ben Shapiro. I am reading “12 Rules for Life,” (not an affiliate link) his book about how to bring order out of chaos.
This book challenges me intellectually and emotionally. In fact, it has made me cry hard one day and I do not cry easily. Sure, there were a lot of things going on in my life on that particular day, but the thoughts in his book really challenged me and shook me to the core, especially about homeschooling.
If you want to become a better person, a better parent, a better homeschooling teacher, this book is for you.
Each rule takes about 30-35 pages to explain, so it is a hefty book to read (368 pages). If you can read 15 pages a day though, you should be able to finish it in less than a month. I know a book club that read one chapter a month and discussed this book for an entire year. It is that deep and full of meaning and challenging thoughts.
I cannot recommend this book enough. Drop what you are reading and pick this one up as soon as you can.
