SeanIcon ,

A life-changing lecture series

There is tremendous wisdom in this lecture series and I have become a better human being from listening. I’m very grateful.

12 Rule Breaker ,

A light in the dark.

Just essential. Thank you Dr. Peterson.

DaddyDalkey ,

Compelling Charlatan

He’s undoubtedly a gripping speaker but seems to be punching well above his weight and lacks intellectual rigor or academic standards.

He sets up straw man arguments and appears confused about the diversity of ideological positions so uses catch-all terms like “the radical postmodern neo marxists”.

Eventually you gather he doesn’t really know what he’s talking about. Apart from clinical psychology I wouldn’t take him very seriously on many topics
