The Road Less Travelled: A Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth
With this first sentence, Dr. M. Scott Peck revolutionized the way we live our lives, and it is no less true today than when it was written twenty years ago.
In this guide to confronting and resolving our problems-and suffering through the changes-we learn that we can reach a higher level of self knowledge. Written in a voice that is timeless in its message of love and understanding, The Road Less Traveled can help us learn the very nature of loving relationships: how to recognize true compatibility; how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become one's own person; how to be a more sensitive parent.
The Road Less Traveled, a national bestseller for twenty years, will show you how to embrace reality and achieve serenity and fullness in your life. In this brilliant, groundbreaking book, traditional psychological thought and spirituality are challenged and a new understanding is brought into everyday life.
By melding love, science, and religion into a primer on personal growth, M. Scott Peck launched his highly successful writing and lecturing career with this book. Even to this day, Peck remains at the forefront of spiritual psychology as a result of The Road Less Traveled. In the era of I'm OK, You're OK, Peck was courageous enough to suggest that "life is difficult" and personal growth is a "complex, arduous and lifelong task." His willingness to expose his own life stories as well as to share the intimate stories of his anonymous therapy clients creates a compelling and heartfelt narrative.
