Fantastic book. Life changing. Hari's messages hit home with me and I hope to be able to create places and circumstances for me and my loved ones that are more connected in the sense of Hari's book. I hope that as a society we can heed the advise given herein so that people don't fall through the cracks or ever feel alone with thwir pain and sorrow. This book provides a totally different perspective on depression and anxiety than the one that is normally distributed and I can recommend this as a read for everyone who experienced depression or anxiety themselves or knows someone who does. It is for all of us to recognise.

Great book giving you a new perspective

I think these days it is important that someone brings perspective into things, since humanity seemingly got carried away by a lot of things that don't really matter and it is so hard to navigate all the different aspects of life in the 21st century.

Peterson is engaging and captivating but also makes some very good and concise points in pretty much every sentence.On a personal level, as a reader I also appreciated the parts of his personal life Peterson shared in this book, which most probably wasn't always easy, but helps you understand how he reached his conclusions.

I believe in this book he looks exactly at and tries to remedy what it is like to be a person in our world today.

Stories beautifully retold

The stories are beautifully told in a lamguage that is modern and funny and witty but still bears tribute to the old gods.

Great book to ground you in reality and not give too many f&@(s. Although peppered with expletives as the title suggests, a very enjoyable book

Unique! highly recommend reading this

Although mainly concerned with Hitler's private physician the book still casts an interesting light on WWII and the Germany of the time and how the war of drugs was paralleled by Hitler himself.

Sehr interessant und einfühlsam, dennoch sachlich

schade dass es das Buch noch nicht auf Englisch gibt, ich denke es wäre gut wenn es auch anderen Menschen die nicht Deutsch sprechen zugänglich wäre.

I used to really enjoy Bill Bryson's book but this one seemed a bit dry in my opinion
