What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research. Humorous, surprising, and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

It sucks. It sucks to be ill-discipline and live a stagnant life, a repetitive life. A Navy SEAL is one who has mastered the art of self-discipline. They are the elites who are courageous under fire and honorable no matter the adversities. Walk through the lessons that we can learn from the best of the best. You are going to learn the most important lessons of self-discipline and many other principles from the best of the best.

I needed a book that was going to get me excited. I needed to hear something, read something, experiencing something, that was going to take me to the next level and confirm what I need to do for excellence. That is what this book has provided to me. I'm a small business owner and at times I can get a little concerned about the future of my corporation; but listening to this book has encouraged me to stick it out put my head down and get it done. Enjoy the suck!

So many people today have an unhealthy need for affirmation and are unable to feel good about themselves without it. These "approval addicts" spend their time in a constant struggle with low self-esteem and emotional turmoil, which leads to major problems in their relationships with others.

It exceeded my expectations. The most memorable moment is when he was talking about sacredness and I was just reminded how sacred we are. And the fact that we are alive means that we are enough. And the emotional states we go through are transient. We are not pain, we are not hunger, we are not sadness, we are life. "You don't have a life, you are life."

Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been magnetically and irresistibly drawn together into romantic relationships, not so much by what they see, feel and think, but more by invisible forces. When individuals with healthy emotional backgrounds meet, the irresistible love force creates a sustainable, reciprocal and stable relationship. Codependents and emotional manipulators are similarly enveloped in a seductive dreamlike state; however, it will later unfold into a painful seesaw of love, pain, hope and disappointment.

What would have made The Human Magnet Syndrome better?

This is not a good book, the information is convoluted and complex, which would not be a factor if it was clearly explained, which it was not. If the reader has certain psychopathology and has a teachable spirit then this may serve as a belaboring complicated self help guide if you can muster up enough patience to finish it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment
