A rare, intimate glimpse into the life and mind of Jordan Peterson, the academic and best-selling author who captured the world's attention with his criticisms of political correctness and his life-changing philosophy on discovering personal meaning. Christened as the most influential public intellectual in the western world, University of Toronto psychology professor Jordan Peterson skyrocketed to fame after he published a controversial viral video series entitled "Professor Against Political Correctness" in 2016. Within 2 years, he sold over 3 million copies of his self-help book, 12 Rules For Life, and became simultaneously branded by some as an academic rockstar selling out theatres around the world, and by others as a dangerous threat to progressive society. THE RISE OF JORDAN PETERSON intimately traces the transformative period of Peterson's life while visiting rare moments with his family, friends and foes who share their own versions of the Jordan Peterson story.Written by

Authentic take on a remarkable, flawed human being
Very different to any Peterson related content I've watched before (and Ive watched alooooot). It made me question my own assumptions about JBP - was kinda like I got to see more of Jordan Peterson the struggling, flawed human being who doesnt know whats going on but is trying his best, as opposed to seeing 'my hero' Jordan Peterson. And it was v interesting to hear from his family/friends (particularly Tammy). I also got emotional in parts. Felt like a very honest, authentic, even-handed take on a remarkable man
