Books I read, my favorites, literature, prose and poetry, e-books and audio-books.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Disappointed: the best parts of the book are some well known facts from behavioral biology, etc., he also expresses well a few original thoughts; too much pathos, especially when he goes almost into tears in a couple of places (audiobook), his points are randomly illustrated by personal stories, excessively so; he tries to defend his current political standpoints loosely related to life in general - Peterson is smart enough to produce a better book, I still hope.
His dark general outlook, being all over the place, unwillingness to take a stand on key points (e.g. no argument against Nietzsche's critique of Christianity, etc.) and apparent believe in almost sacred nature of his own thought process make me less interested in his future works, even thought I used to enjoy the recordings of his university lectures in the past.
Two places in the book were unpleasant to me: 1) where he expresses an opinion about his private client, 2) where he does not say the expected (metaphorically) "daughter of god."

I've been a librarian on GoodReads for many years, and I still save my reading list there. These are the 100 latest books I read, with ratings and occasional short notes, in addition to authors and titles.
At least half of them were audio books that I listened during exercising and simple errands like driving and shopping.
Listening to audiobooks saves me time and enriches my life, shielding me from the aspects of the reality I rather ignore.
To read, maybe:
