Publisher Comments:

Now featuring a new introduction by Dr. M. Scott Peck, the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the classic bestseller The Road Less Traveled, celebrated by The Washington Post as “not just a book but a spontaneous act of generosity.”

Perhaps no book in this generation has had a more profound impact on our intellectual and spiritual lives than The Road Less Traveled. With sales of more than seven million copies in the United States and Canada, and translations into more than twenty-three languages, it has made publishing history, with more than ten years on the New York Times bestseller list.

Written in a voice that is timeless in its message of understanding, The Road Less Traveled continues to help us explore the very nature of loving relationships and leads us toward a new serenity and fullness of life. It helps us learn how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become a more sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one’s own true self.

Recognizing that, as in the famous opening line of his book, “Life is difficult” and that the journey to spiritual growth is a long one, Dr. Peck never bullies his readers, but rather guides them gently through the hard and often painful process of change toward a higher level of self-understanding.

Synopsis:

Written in a voice that is timeless in its message of love and understanding, "The Road Less Traveled" continues to help readers explore the very nature of loving relationships. Wise and profoundly spiritual, this is a proven classic, a book to turn to again and again for understanding and inspiration.

Educated at Harvard (B.A.) and Case Western Reserve (M.D.), Dr. Peck served in administrative posts in the government during his career as a psychiatrist, and later in private practice.

Marilyn Stachenfeld, January 13, 2008 (view all comments by Marilyn Stachenfeld)
When I first read this book, in the early eighties, I was distracted by the author's personality, which comes across strongly. One chapter in particular put me off by describing a woman who was seeking the author's "love" as evil. I felt the author, because he was a psychiatrist, should help her. Twenty-plus years later, I begin to understand the warning given about people who use illness, particularly mental illness, to drain other human beings, calling this "love." This habit of sucking others into weakness is one of the dangers Peck identifies. A man who has lived through enormous changes in his own life, Peck gathers his experiences into discernments that become more and more timely as we try to evolve into fully developed humans, loving ourselves and the goodness in each other. "The Road Less Traveled" offers pathways of genuineness to readers who are willing to dig deeply to understand its message. I recommend this book to a new generation of readers and to anyone who had not made acquaintance with this author's fascinating profundities.
