The companion volume to 12 Rules for Life offers further guidance on the perilous path of modern life. 
In 12 Rules for Life, clinical psychologist and celebrated professor at Harvard and the University of Toronto Dr. Jordan B. Peterson helped millions of readers impose order on the chaos of their lives. Now, in this bold sequel, Peterson delivers twelve more lifesaving principles for resisting the exhausting toll that our desire to order the world inevitably takes.
In a time when the human will increasingly imposes itself over every sphere of life—from our social structures to our emotional states—Peterson warns that too much security is dangerous. What’s more, he offers strategies for overcoming the cultural, scientific, and psychological forces causing us to tend toward tyranny, and teaches us how to rely instead on our instinct to find meaning and purpose, even—and especially—when we find ourselves powerless.
While chaos, in excess, threatens us with instability and anxiety, unchecked order can petrify us into submission. Beyond Order provides a call to balance these two fundamental principles of reality itself, and guides us along the straight and narrow path that divides them.

Preferred the first book in the series, but this is no less full of insight

This is a terrific book, the third of Peterson's book I listened to (audio). It is well-researched, deep, and well-narrated by the author. I began with Peterson's Maps of Meaning but had to put it down because it was hard to follow, as the vocabulary is very academic and hard to comprehend. Nevertheless, I knew that the content was profound and switched to his "12 Rules" books because they were written for a more general audience. Now that I've read these (12 Rules), I returned to his Maps of Meaning; they are much easier to follow. These three books are "Keepers", and I intend to review them often. because of the author's profound insight into psychology, mythology, sociology, and neural science and the way he weaves these topics together for a greater understanding of the human condition. Peterson is a top-notch thinker who deserves to be studied.
