Book of the Year 2019-2020
Title: 12 Rules for Life
Author: Jordan B. Peterson

On 9 January, 2020, 161 copies of the book were delivered to the school, 10 of which was donated to the School Library and 149 of the rest were given to all S5 students.

Digests and reflection on each of the 12 rules are being written by Yun Kwan YIU (’96) and Barry WONG (’08).

Rule 1: General digest and reflections

Rule 2: Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping

Rule 3: Make friends with people who want the best for you

Rule 4: Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today

Rule 5: Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them

Rule 7: Pursue what is meaningful (not what is expedient)
