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.

In the dark depths of the bottomless sea dwells a white demon, taking shape as the Leviathan known as Moby Dick. One year ago, the malefic brute crunched off the leg of the ungodly Captain Ahab, who now swears revenge. So runs the epic tale of Moby Dick, the supernal work of Herman Melville. In this unabridged production, you will walk with the young sailor Ishmael through the fires of life on a whaling vessel.

William Harvey was a prolific masonic scholar of his day. In this poetical piece from 1917, he writes about the culmination of the masonic journey by the candidate's arrival at the third degree, or that of Master Mason. He discusses the movement of time in a mason's life, the symbols of the hourglass and scythe, and the dual aspects of the checkered tile, among other symbols.

He also walks us through the entered apprentice degree a bit and speaks of specific symbolism the candidate encounters within the first degree.

Member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and co-creator of probably the most famous and most commonly used tarot deck, Arthur Edward Waite was also a prolific writer and prominent Freemason. Here he looks into the trio of Blue Lodge degrees and the initiatory arc of birth, life, and death associated with those degrees. He looks at the history of these types of initiations in the ancient world, as well as how they relate to the candidate, and asks the listener to consider if Freemasonry even has a place in this type of initiation cycle.

Whether they want to admit it or not most women play mind games on men. Some do it ruthlessly and maliciously and others do it because they feel that this is a clever way and the only way sometimes to get men to do exactly what they want them to do in a relationship. These mind games that women play involve the highest form of manipulation. For example, a woman shedding crocodile tears with the sole purpose of getting a man to bend to her will.

innocently decorated half truths about female hypergamy. some truth to it, but instead of (for example) NOT playing into female head games, this book tells you to say she looks great after the "...fat in these jeans" question. not researched. just a woman giving you the answers she wants to hear. also seems to be in favor of the government ha ing guns, not the people. apparently she also hasn't researched what made freedom and prosperity for the first time since humans climbed out of the slime too. that lack of research in politics indicates the same in relationships. she spots from the female hip. consider your source, guys. check out Aaron clarey instead

Robert's Rules of Order were designed to properly assemble a group of people, of any size. It's a form of organizing assemblies intelligently. Any group, society, or assembly who adopts Robert's rules has the liberty to adopt their own rules - eventually creating their own book of rules.

A squared plus b squared equals c squared. It sounds simple, doesn’t it? Yet this familiar expression opens a gateway into the riotous garden of mathematics, and sends us on a journey of exploration in the company of two inspired guides, Robert and Ellen Kaplan. With wit, verve, and clarity, they trace the life of the Pythagorean theorem, from ancient Babylon to the present, visiting along the way Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, President James Garfield, and the Freemasons - not to mention the elusive Pythagoras himself.

if you are not a mathematician, this isn't going to be a read that helps you understand much. makes the case that Pythagoras didn't invent his famous theory. also has so many mathematical examples that it's hard to follow without being a mathematician.

Math is not only the game of numbers but also the language of nature. As a matter of fact, it has been established through research that the more we understand our universe, the more we discover interesting mathematical connections. For instance, flowers have spirals that are carefully lined up in a special sequence of numbers commonly referred to as Fibonacci numbers. This sequence can be studied, understood, and generated.
