Currently reading 12 rules for life, Jordan Peterson. It’s not for everybody though
Idk about reading a self help book by a man who got himself tricked by his daughter into eating only meat (wtf) who then got addicted to benzos lol but alright

Yeah I don’t like him, but the book is good
Haven’t read any of his books myself but I hear he draws you in by combining sound psychological advice like ‘clean your room’ (which has shown to have tangible positive effects) with some weird utilitarian Jungian pseudo-religion. His fans were basically a cult a few years back but that’s died down a bit since his coma due to addiction.

I’ve noticed he has a pessimistic view of life, he is too serious and exaggerating. Probably because he’s met messed up individuals as a clinical psychologist so he thinks people are constantly oppressed and need to fight back.

Some stuff are good and practical, like having a good routine, a big breakfast with lots of protein, not hanging around with losers because they will drag you down, not helping losers who are not ready for helping because they will also drag you down, etc.

But he doesn’t make exceptions to his doctrines, he doesn’t believe in collective cooperation until you’ve fixed your life. That’s why he doesn’t take climate change seriously because it requires collective cooperation and responsibility.

He should stay out of politics.
 
I’m interested in reading The Prince. I’ve never been one for Islamic philosophy though I won’t mind reading Ghazali based on reputation.
