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.

Julianne Westcott was living the kind of life that other Protestant girls in prewar Liverpool could only dream about: old money, silk ball gowns, and prominent young men lining up to escort her. But when she learns of a blind-and-deaf brother, institutionalized since birth, the illusion of her perfect life and family shatters around her.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable story that I can see myself reading again and again in the future and recommending to many! I love the way it was written in multiple part timelines and in the present, seamlessly skipping back and forth weaving the tale of love and sacrifice! A perfectly beautiful read!

Half-Korean, half-Japanese, Masaji Ishikawa has spent his whole life feeling like a man without a country. This feeling only deepened when his family moved from Japan to North Korea when Ishikawa was just 13 years old. His father, himself a Korean national, was lured to the new Communist country by false promises of abundant work and a higher station in society. In this memoir translated from the original Japanese, Ishikawa candidly recounts his tumultuous upbringing and the brutal 36 years he spent living under a crushing totalitarian regime.

This book was captivating, heartbreaking, and enlightening. I'm so thankful that Masaji Ishikawa survived and is telling his story! I hope he has dreams come true and is able to work wonders and miracles through the outcome of this book. Masaji, I am so sorry for all you've been through. As I read your book, I only wished I could have fed, clothed and sheltered your family. Your story made me realize how blessed I've been, in even the hardest times. I pray you find peace in your remaining years. Thank you for being brave and sharing your story - I believe God saved you for this reason!

Fly fishermen everywhere will enjoy these varied, witty, and engaging adventures by one of America’s finest outdoor writers. There is a long section on trout fishing called "Brookies, Browns, and Bows", and another on the challenges and excitement of saltwater fly fishing, and an exciting group of memoirs about fishing near home and in far-flung and often exotic places - like the Minipi, Bighorn, and Norfolk rivers, where the trout can beggar the imagination, and where frustration can be the occupational hazard.
