The #1 Sunday Times and International Bestseller from 'the most influential public intellectual in the Western world right now' (New York Times) What are the most valuable things that everyone should know? Acclaimed clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson has influenced the modern understanding of personality, and now he has become one of the world's most popular public thinkers, with his lectures on topics from the Bible to romantic relationships to mythology drawing tens of millions of viewers. In an era of unprecedented change and polarizing politics, his frank and refreshing message about the value of individual responsibility and ancient wisdom has resonated around the world. In this book, he provides twelve profound and practical principles for how to live a meaningful life, from setting your house in order before criticising others to comparing yourself to who you were yesterday, not someone else today. Happiness is a pointless goal, he shows us. Instead we must search for meaning, not for its own sake, but as a defence against the suffering that is intrinsic to our existence. Drawing on vivid examples from the author's clinical practice and personal life, cutting edge psychology and philosophy, and lessons from humanity's oldest myths and stories, 12 Rules for Life offers a deeply rewarding antidote to the chaos in our lives: eternal truths applied to our modern problems.

How much do we owe the people we love? Is it a sign of strength or weakness to walk away from someone in need? These questions lie at the heart of Ann Packer’s intimate and emotionally thrilling new novel, which has won its author comparisons with Jane Hamilton and Sue Miller. At the age of twenty-three Carrie Bell has spent her entire life in Wisconsin, with the same best friend and the same dependable, easygoing, high school sweetheart. Now to her dismay she has begun to find this life suffocating and is considering leaving it–and Mike–behind. But when Mike is paralyzed in a diving accident, leaving seems unforgivable and yet more necessary than ever. The Dive from Clausen’s Pier animates this dilemma–and Carrie’s startling response to it–with the narrative assurance, exacting realism, and moral complexity we expect from the very best fiction.

The book is entitled Tragedy In The Making. It's written after he the (author) experienced suffering, pain, struggle, and poverty for a very long time in his life because of wrong beliefs he subscribed to, wrong decisions and choices he have made. The truth is that people are overwhelmed by what they are going through in their daily living. People are trying so hard to make life work, and no matter how hard they try, they keep on failing. Because they are living their lives outside the parameters of God's will for their lives. Tragedy in the Making is trying to live the life we have designed for ourselves versus failing to live the life that God has designed for us. When you keep doing things in your own way, instead of God's way, you won't be able to manage your life—that is a promise. The source of the suffering in this book is the result of men not comprehending the purpose and the plan of God for creating them. When I observe and look around in the world today, I see a lot of ongoing suffering, pain, struggle, and poverty in God's people as well. I believe you can agree with me when I say, "Some of the things we see daily in this world are heartbreaking." Most leaders are responsible for the suffering and struggle that we see in people's lives. Whether be the heads of states, heads of institutions, or heads of families. Somehow, we are where we are today because someone has led us there. The solution in your suffering, sorrow, pain, and struggle can only be found in one only, and his name is Jesus Christ. He came to reconcile us with the Father. He came to restore us into our original state and mend a broken relationship between us and God our creator.

When Shelby gets knocked down by a car, it's not just her leg that's broken: Shelby's world is shattered. Her mom turns up to collect her and drives off into the night, like it's the beginning of a road trip, like two criminals on the run, like Thelma and Louise or Bonnie and Clyde. And somehow, everywhere she looks, there's a coyote watching her, talking to her, telling her not to believe. Who is Shelby Jane Cooper? If the person who keeps you safe also tells you lies, who can you trust?
