            Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life

            Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In 12 Rules for Life, acclaimed public thinker and clinical psychologist Jordan B. Peterson offered an antidote to the chaos in our lives- eternal truths applied to modern anxieties. His insights have helped millions of readers and resonated powerfully around the world. Now in th...is long-awaited sequel, Peterson goes further, showing that part of life's meaning comes from reaching out into the domain beyond what we know, and adapting to an ever-transforming world. While an excess of chaos threatens us with uncertainty, an excess of order leads to a lack of curiosity and creative vitality. Beyond Order therefore calls on us to balance the two fundamental principles of reality - order and chaos -- and reveals the profound meaning that can be found on the path that divides them. In times of instability and suffering, Peterson reminds us that there are sources of strength on which we can all draw- insights borrowed from psychology, philosophy, and humanity's greatest myths and stories. Drawing on the hard-won truths of ancient wisdom, as well as deeply personal lessons from his own life and clinical practice, Peterson offers twelve new principles to guide readers towards a more courageous, truthful and meaningful life.

            To Be Fair: The Ultimate Guide to Fairness in the 21st Century

            To Be Fair: The Ultimate Guide to Fairness in the 21st Century (Hardback)

            What does it mean 'to be fair', how do we decide what we mean by Fair Play and why does unfairness cause us such anguish? We take it for granted and talk about it constantly, but when fairness is broken, why does its absence gnaw at what it means to be human? Fairness has gone mi...ssing in Western society, Ben Fenton argues in this polemic on the common impulse that holds humanity together. Fenton, one of Britain's most experienced news reporters, defines what we mean by fairness and reveals where it sits in the make-up of our species. He traces the evolution of the instinct to be fair from prehistoric man to Black Lives Matter and explores its place in history, politics, sport, law, business and even in war.

            A profoundly inspiring and transformative argument that purposeful commitment can be a powerful force in our age of restlessness and indecision. Most of us have had this experience: browsing through countless options on Netflix, unable to commit to watching any given movie--and l...osing so much time skimming reviews and considering trailers that it's too late to watch anything at all. In a book borne of an idea first articulated in a viral commencement address, Pete Davis argues that this is the defining characteristic of the moment: keeping our options open. We are stuck in Infinite Browsing Mode --swiping through endless dating profiles without committing to a single partner, jumping from place to place searching for the next big thing, and refusing to make any decision that might close us off from an even better choice we imagine is just around the corner. This culture of restlessness and indecision, Davis argues, is causing tension in the lives of young people today: We want to keep our options open, and yet we yearn for the purpose, community, and depth that can only come from making deep commitments. In Dedicated, Davis examines this quagmire, as well as the counterculture of committers who have made it to the other side. He shares what we can learn from the long-haul heroes who courageously commit themselves to particular places, professions, and causes--who relinquish the false freedom of an open future in exchange for the deep fulfillment of true dedication. Weaving together examples from history, personal stories, and applied psychology, Davis's candid and humble words offer a meaningful answer to our modern frustrations and a practical path to joy.
