#114- Jordan B. Peterson’s Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life


This week, Scott and Karl discuss Jordan B. Peterson’s Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life

As the companion volume to 12 Rules for Life, Peterson’s new book offers “further guidance on the perilous path of modern life.”

While Scott and Karl agree these are decent, sensible rules for life, they are not well-grounded and possibly even planted in sand.  

“I’ve read books for this show that I don’t agree with, written by people who I think are awful like Marcuse and Alinsky,” Scott says, “But their books at least hang together to push their end. This doesn’t do that.” 

Both a self-help manual and a bestseller, Beyond Order has already resonated so profoundly with so many. Karl later adds, “It’s a shallow pond, but it’s a good pond.”
