Dr. Jordan Peterson announced today that his third book Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life is finally going to be coming out on March 2, 2021.
Dr. Peterson produced a runaway success with his second book 12 Rules for Life in January of 2018. In the first year alone, the book sold three million copies and is still available for purchase on ever Walmart and Barnes and Noble shelf in the United States. As of today, its’ currently sold more than five million copies.
The book’s success obviously made his publisher thirsty for another runaway success and prompted him to write a companion book to expand upon his ideas. We’ve known such a book has been in the works for more than a year now but it appeared to have slowed down it’s production due to Dr. Peterson’s unfortunate run-in with anxiety-drug dependency in the last two years.
He confirmed the book’s publication date just this morning with a YouTube video confirming the book is completed and that preorders had gone live this morning at every major book store and website.
“Now in this long-awaited companion volume, Dr. Peterson goes further, showing that part of life’s meaning comes from reaching out into the domain beyond what we know, and adapting to an ever- transforming world. While an excess of chaos threatens us with uncertainty, an excess of order leads to a lack of curiosity and creative vitality. Beyond Order therefore calls on us to balance the two fundamental principles of reality – order and chaos – and reveals the profound meaning that can be found on the path that divides them.
In times of instability and suffering, Dr. Peterson reminds us that there are sources of strength on which we can all draw: insights borrowed from psychology, philosophy, and humanity’s greatest myths and stories. Drawing on the hard-won truths of ancient wisdom, as well as deeply personal lessons from his own life and clinical practice, Dr. Peterson offers twelve new principles to guide readers towards a more courageous, truthful and meaningful life.
Dr. Peterson writes in the introduction, “I hope that people find this book as helpful personally, as they seem to have found the first set of 12 Rules. It has been a source of immense gratification that so many people have reported drawing strength from the thoughts and the stories I have had the privilege of bringing forth and sharing.”Press Statement, JordanBPeterson.com
