M. Scott Peck’s publishing history reflects his own evolution as a serious and widely acclaimed writer, thinker, psychiatrist, and spiritual guide. Since his groundbreaking bestseller, The Road Less Traveled, was first published in 1978, his insatiable intellectual curiosity has taken him in various new directions with virtually each new book: the subject of healing human evil in People of the Lie (1982), where he first briefly discussed exorcism and possession; the creative experience of community in The Different Drum (1987); the role of civility in personal relationships and society in A World Waiting to Be Born (1993); an examination of the complexities of life and the paradoxical nature of belief in Further Along the Road Less Traveled (1993); and an exploration of the medical, ethical, and spiritual issues of euthanasia in Denial of the Soul (1999); as well as a novel, a children’s book, and other works. A graduate of both Harvard University and Case Western Reserve, Dr. Peck served in the Army Medical Corps before maintaining a private practice in psychiatry. For the last twenty years, he has devoted much of his time and financial resources to the work of the Foundation for Community Encouragement, a nonprofit organization that he helped found in 1984. Dr. Peck lives in Connecticut.

First of all, When I read this book, I felt that this book may be the best book in psychology. This book is really thought provoking. It looks like there are multiple revisions/editions of this book over the period of time. I attached the picture of the soft cover one that I read. This book was recommended by one of my friends and then I also found some good ratings about this book. This book will give you a nice glimpse of your personality and will also make you realize that you can take control of your life. It is a good read for all age groups. The book starts with the tools/techniques of suffering, the discipline – to experience the pain of problems constructively. These four tools are: delayed gratification, acceptance of responsibility, dedication to truth, and balancing. The author says that the life problems cannot be avoided in life. To experience happiness, they need to be identified and solved. One of my favorite quote from the books is “Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.” It took me some time to read this book as it is thought provoking and the thoughts need to be processed and digested before proceeding further.
If this review helped you and you plan to experience the “The Road Less Traveled” journey, then have fun on this beautiful journey of greater self-understanding and spiritual growth.

I read this book almost 10 years ago in my early twenties and found it very insightful and helpful. Now, in my early thirties and in graduate school for Psychology, I find it very dated.
The lens through which the author speaks comes across to me as one who is quick to label and see people through such labels. His views on spirituality and morality seem to contradict, and it is clear that his morals are based more on relativism than Christian ethics and boundaries. If you are a Christian looking to read this, you will quickly see what I am referring to. I do not have a problem against spirituality, it is a basic facet of our human existence. But the author seems to be basing his moral and ethical conclusions on his personal opinion alone.
Another big issue I had reading through this was the reductionism. Simple situations such as PTSD resulting from clear childhood or adult trauma are reduced to personality disorders and character disorders. It is worrisome to imagine the lack of compassion given to some of these case examples. It is also concerning his recurring thoughts on psychotherapists falling in love with patients or being attracted to patients. I wondered more than once if his generalization of how often this happens is more of an admission of his own personal boundary crossings. A few statements he made left me rather blown away by his lack of moral compass. For example, his saying that an open marriage is the best way to go; his comments on willingness to sleep with patients; his crude thoughts on prostitution. He admits he never saw sexual sin as a problem in his life. This is clear, and disturbing.
All of that to say, there are a few worthwhile ideas in this book as well. However, they are mainly in the first section of the book, regarding delayed gratification, personal responsibility, and adherence to truth. I am curious if anyone else had this response to this book.
Learn how to love like a human being, read this wonder filled book by the late great Dr. M. Scott Peck, MD.

This is one of my favorite books. I have read it and enjoyed every page more than twenty times in the last twenty years. I have audio tapes of the book read by Scott Peck and have listened to these tapes from beginning to end more than twenty times. I particularly enjoy the second section of this book called LOVE. Reading and comprehending the meaning of this chapter made me a better human being. I learned that love is the natural way for me to live every moment of every day. I have no time for negative thinking. I purchased this copy to give to my stepson. He has just become a father. I want him to benefit from the great wisdom Dr. Peck wrote with this marvelous book.

I don’t want to keep reading this because the info and ideas are dated and I’m concerned that I will absorb them. At first when I noticed this, I thought I would just have to be discerning about what I keep and what I leave, but I’m not getting much value while using considerable mental energy to extrapolate anything worthwhile. It might be interesting from a sociological perspective, to see how much ideas and attitudes have changed in the last 40ish years. I don’t want to be in a critical mindset while I’m reading for pleasure/self enrichment. This may have met many where they were and spoke to them at the time it was published, it may still meet many where they are. To me it feels stale and I’m moving on.
