Chapter 5. Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them

Chapter 6. Set your house in perfect order before you criticize the world

In my 81 years on Planet Eart, I've read a ton of self-help books... but I must tell you that "I sincerely want to thank Mr. Peterson for writing this book" For it is very clear that he truly wants to help us all have a better life. If you are not going to read this book at least give it a go on YouTube...
