Apparently, Dr. Jordan Peterson’s next book to be released 2021 is a real tear-jerker. Peterson is a University of Toronto Psychology professor who took the world by storm when he took a strong stand against political correctness and social justice. He is also an advocate of free speech.

His message is very simple, people need to grow up, quit blaming everyone else for their problems and take responsibility for their lives. His first book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, sold over three million copies worldwide.

His second book, Beyond Order: 12 more rules for Life, scheduled to be released in March caused a few of the staff at the book’s Canadian publisher to burst into tears, when they found out their employer was publishing the book. They demanded that Penguin cancel the book.

The Blaze explains:

Publishing giant Penguin Random House Canada announced Monday that it would be releasing Toronto professor Dr. Jordan Peterson’s latest book next year, a decision that apparently left multiple employees in tears.

Vice‘s Manisha Krishnan broke the story, reporting that the staff felt their employer — the largest publisher in Canada — “ambushed” them with the news, and managers defended the company’s decision during a town hall with the staff.

“Several employees cried at the meeting discussing how Peterson’s views have negatively impacted their lives,” Krishnan tweeted. “One told me: “He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy… I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him.”
