A really comprehensive guide to writing essay, although I feel like what is presented in this document actually is regarding the art of writing in general, and of writing long form research paper in particular. Some steps feel a bit over the top for an essay, but I guess it also depends on how you define “essay” in your own terms and what you think constitutes a good essay. For Jordan Peterson, an essay requires solid writing and repeated review and correction, so a lot of dedication. Pretty sur ...more

Pretty good advice. I agree with Peterson that if you write your essay according to this plan, and you complete every step, you will produce an essay that is at least very good. I also liked the part where he said that writing is essential to thinking and becoming a better conversationalist, because it helps you refine your own ideas and throw away the substandard ones.

The only thing I didn’t like about this book was his occasionally unnecessarily pointed comment towards SJWs, which seemed out o

In two weeks I will be a University Student again as I complete the Masters level Subjects in Psychotherapy, and I will again be writing essays. Given the esteem I have for Professor Peterson, I thought this might be worth an hour of my time to prepare myself again for academic writing.

I found a good structure for writing a good essay and how to write well (but it seems a lot of extra work compared to how I used to write). I know what it is now, and can use prn.

Nothing that I didn't knew prior to reading it, but a very enjoyable read nonetheless. Peterson is very articulate and economical in his writing and its self evident that he knows what he's talking about when it comes to composing essays.

I wish I had read it a few years ago.

“Rules are there for a reason. You are only allowed to break them if you are a master. If
you’re not a master, don’t confuse your ignorance with creativity or style.”
“So, if you are respectful of the rule, and conscious of its importance, and
realize that it serves as a bulwark against the chaos of the unknown, and you still decide to
break it, carefully, because the particularities of the circumstances demand it – well, then,
more power to you. If you are just a careless, ignorant, antisocial narcissist instead,
however, then look out. You break a rule at your peril, whether you know it or not.”
