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.

I thought that this book would be an easy read. After all, the rules that were enlisted on the back cover were simpe and easy to understand.

Little did I know that it would be so dense. at 16 hours, It didnt feel long. In fact, I am already thinking about re-reading the book.

Every chapter delves into an area of life that can be over looked.

I loved this book so much that I bought the hard copy because I wanted to highlight some passages that struck me.

I was nearly brought to tears on the final chapter.

Again, if you are looking for something that will change how you view the world, and yoursef. I highly recommend this book.

It’s *that* good.

Deep work is the ability to focus without distraction on a cognitively demanding task. It's a skill that allows you to quickly master complicated information and produce better results in less time. Deep work will make you better at what you do and provide the sense of true fulfillment that comes from craftsmanship. In short, deep work is like a superpower in our increasingly competitive 21st-century economy.

This book is perfect for people who are having a hard time concentrating. Cal gives you concrete tips on how you can improve the quality of your work and not only that, but also produce more.

This audiobook deserves at least 3 listens. I implore you to buy this if you are a knowledge worker, and just feel that you have too much on your plate, and want to get more your day.

Buy this audiobook and get the hardcover too.

You will not regret it.
