People of the Lie by M. Scott Peck

Book Description

"The patient suddenly resembled a writhing snake of great strength...More frightening than the writhing body, however, was the face. The eyes were hooded with lazy reptilian torpor..." This is the second bestselling book by Dr M. Scott Peck. In this gripping psychology book, the leading psychiatrist describes his encounters during psychiatric therapy with patients who are not merely ill but manifestly evil - People of the Lie. This brilliant, disturbing book forces us to confront the darker side of our natures and to recogise that without spiritual and religious dimension, modern psychiatry cannot claim to understand human nature or behaviour. It is a worthy successor to The Road Less Travelled.

Road Less Travelled by M. Scott Peck Road Less Travelled, Hardback (April 2012)

Confronting and solving problems is a painful process which most of us attempt to avoid. Avoiding resolution results in greater pain and an inability to grow both mentally and spiritually. This title suggests ways in which facing our difficulties - and suffering through the changes - can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understanding.

Road Less Travelled and Beyond by M. Scott Peck Road Less Travelled and Beyond, Paperback (February 1999)

The journey to serenity and peace, Dr Peck writes, can only be made with increasing self-awareness and social awareness. There are no easy answers for complex problems. In this text, he aims to show that there is a way to think with integrity, and to come to terms with dying and death.

World Waiting to be Born by M. Scott Peck World Waiting to be Born, Paperback (October 1998)

Now in paperback, the author of the phenomenal The Road Less Traveled presents his long-awaited major new work of nonfiction for individuals, partners in marriage, family members, and participants in the workplace--offering revolutionary change to create a genuinely civil society.
