We live in a chaotic world. This month, we aim to tackle some of that chaos with Jordan Peterson’s book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. The renowned psychologist’s work has reached the number one spot on both national and international bestsellers lists, and, despite being published in 2018, it still tops the charts on Amazon.
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.
Dr. Peterson journeys broadly, discussing discipline, freedom, adventure and responsibility, distilling the world’s wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life. 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science, faith and human nature, while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its readers. I look forward to this discussion!
Working through Jordan Peterson’s “12 Rules” is no easy feat and must be accompanied by some serious wine. I have selected three wines that are each 12 years old and pack a punch. If you are a fan of deep, luscious red wine, this month’s wine picks are for you. Our two more affordable bottles hail from Spain, which comes as no surprise since Spain will always offer a big bang for your buck. And the final bottle is an Italian stallion that will take you on a nice ride. These wines are all quite affordable considering their age and quality and I highly recommend to keep one or all three in your cellar for steak night. Grab a bottle, grab the book and join the Cru!
Cheers and happy reading!
