The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck was originally published in 1978 and became a best-seller in 1983. In his book, Peck discusses love, traditional values and spiritual growth while affirming his belief in miracles, reincarnation and telepathy. Deemed a ‘self-help book for people who don’t read self-help books’, The Road Less Traveled contains an unabashed telling of Peck’s spiritual and psychological crises – as well as what he’s come to realize because of them.
At the root of his counsel, he advises that self-discipline should be at the top of the list of values for a good life. Peck also states that accepting life’s problems and the pain that accompanies them only enhances the need for discipline as a way of self-caring. Among the (somewhat) old-fashioned air of his advice, Peck talks about the best ways to deal with life, without the sentiment of any kind of rose-colored glasses.
We recommend it as a great read to help put things into perspective and provides some valuable advice.
