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.

This book revealed to me things I knew that I did not know I knew. It provided me with strength, and brightened the spark within me.

I’m still working on straightening up, sorting out my family, and bringing peace and prosperity to my community. But I feel much better-equipped to do so than I have ever been before.

Interstellar con man Rex Nihilo has a price tag on his head. Railroaded into smuggling a shipment of contraband corn to a planet short on food, Rex finds himself on the run from an insidious corporation named Ubiqorp, which reaps obscene profits by keeping the planet dependent on shipments of synthetic rations.

This is my first exposure to both Kroese’s writing and Ledford’s performance, and my biggest regret is that I didn’t pick up the Rex Nihilo series sooner. I’ve been listening during the work day, and SASHA’s narration of Rex’s misadventures had me in stitches all week. Kroese’s sense of punny humor reminds me of Piers Anthony, and the narration by Ledford was brilliantly delivered.
