    One thought on “The Road Less Traveled”

    1. It gets four stars for the simple truth of the opening lines Life is difficult This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it Once we truly know that life is difficult once we truly understand and accept it then life is no longer difficult Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters It amazes me how much damage I have done by expecting life to be something other than difficult and how [...]

    2. The author has delved deep into, with profound insights, on what really causes unhappiness in our life He asserts that it is precisely in avoiding our problems and hurdles that we suffer in our life it is the pain and suffering caused by difficulties in life that we have to meet in order to grow mentally and spiritually We cannot solve life s problems except by solving them.The following were the key takeaways LIFE IS DIFFICULT This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths It is a great trut [...]

    3. An extraordinary book about Life and the art of Living It was the most complete and indepth book about personal development from which one become much aware of the nature of all kinds of relationships This book will help to shape your vision of Life Please, just read it Your perspective about things will never be the same Notable, indeed

    4. Dr Peck s first doorstop Inexplicably, this sorry waste of time and paper remained on the NYT Bestseller list for something like ten years I don t know why I m surprised, actually this is the same country that elected George W Bush twice, not to mention the vulgar talking yam who now sits in the Oval Office If you were unfortunate enough to buy this, or have it given to you as a gift, do yourself a favor now put this one the shelf right beside that other pop pseudo psychology piece of shit Miche [...]

    5. Probably the most important book on love, psychological and spiritual development that I have ever read Clear, straightforward, concise, very accessible Don t be put off by the criticism of the numerous references to God and grace in the later chapters I found them useful and open in the sense that God might be substituted by universe , energy , oneness or whatever you might want to call it There is no need to believe in a deity If you do find the reference to concepts of oneness or God problema [...]

    6. This book is by now a classic in the field of psychology Yet, it s written for a mainstream audience and goes through some of the basic tenets of psychological theory e.g attachment, individuation, boundaries, delayed gratification but does so through the lense of spiritual growth Peck is an excellent writer and fine therapist who is sensitive to the issues of spirituality The case examples and stories in the book really bring his concepts and ideas together This is a book that I would recommend [...]

    7. A very insightful book authored by a psychologist psychiatrist who reveals the secrets to fulfilling, healthy, meaningful and lasting relationships It really makes you see yourself and others in a different light, as well as words and concepts we think we understand His hallmark argument is that we so often view love as a noun instead of a verb as something that just happens to us or doesn t happen to us, instead of an ongoing task we must work atat work, that action is love In fact, something I [...]

    8. This book is second only to the bible to me It teaches you what love is What love is not Why old fashioned values like honesty, hard work, discipline and integrity are important Every person should read it This book should be required reading in high school or college.

    9. I initially picked up this book because I was told that this author was the inspiration for a women s retreat I went to a couple years ago However, I found no connection to the theme of the retreat and this book.Initially I found Peck s theories on discipline appealing He promoted fundamental ideas of Buddhism, such as life is suffering and only through acceptance of that suffering can we truly live and be free of it He believes that the pursuit of the truth regardless of the pain involved is fu [...]

    10. This book starts out extremely engaging and helpful in nature worthy of four or five stars But midway through Peck reveals his psychology of teaching his patients and readers to become like God While I m certain he means no malice in this objective, he seems ignorant of negative psychological aspects of this philosophy Indeed, the book Toxic Faith cites You can become God as one of the twenty one Toxic Beliefs of a Toxic Faith p.98 Having observed the deleterious effect of this belief among the [...]

    11. Peck begins well, citing the first of Buddhism s Four Noble Truths, Life is Suffering And what we all need is a discipline instilled in our childhood by a love which teaches us to face our problems instead of ducking them in procrastination, denial, and the like Sounds fine, but there seems to this reader to be something missing.a mythic element, perhaps Life will be beautiful if only we get ourselves under control and work hard, etcetera, etcetera It feels to me as if all wonder has been replac [...]

    12. I read this book to make my mom happy Her church book group was reading it, and she got all stoked about it after reading the first section It was a fairly bland combination of basic common sense self discipline is good, laziness is bad , pseudo spiritual psychobabble your unconscious mind is God , and the occasional moral zinger open marriage is the only real form of marriage Overall, I was unimpressed, but I wasn t begging the Lord for the 6 hours of my life back, either I never even asked my [...]

    13. I cherish this book and give praise to Scott Peck for writing this masterpiece, a wealth of knowledge and wisdom.The first time I read it I was in my early 30 s It changed my life, encouraged me to live authentically and with courage when your raising a family one needs to follow their conscience and make tough decisions Peck teaches and encourages this process I have followed up with Peck s subsequent books in the last few years.I recomend this to any adult searching for a better life but parti [...]

    15. The author endeared me early on to his obvious skill, professionalism and empathy with his patients The first part was fairly entertaining, with the right amount of insight and entertainment from Peck s own therapy sessions I could identify with the people and situations and could pause at times for self reflection There was a challenge to personal change as Peck built his case for seeking maturity and using therapy to achieve that end.Peck is strongest as a therapist His insight is keen, and hi [...]

    16. I read the Road Less Travelled because several Internet sites rated it the most read self help book ever As a therapist and fan of self help books I felt like I needed to get right on it I m glad I did Peck has wisdom and depth to spare on the topics of psychotherapy and human fulfillment He offers a fundamental jumping off point to anyone hoping to improve their life, whether through therapy or introspection So you need to read it That being said, there are some cautions Peck can by turns be lo [...]

    17. I have owned this book since I believe 1980 or so, but consider this a book, everyone should have on their life travel.

    18. Okudu um ki isel geli im kitab n n haddi hesab yok.Pis huylar mdan halen kurtulamam oldu um g z n nde bulundurulursa,bu t r kitaplar n gram faydas olmad a ikard r.

    19. This book was recommended by one of my seminary teachers whose specialty was mitzvos bein adam l chavero, i.e the Biblical laws that govern interpersonal relationships It was the only non Jewish self help book she respected, and considering her own expertise, I think that s quite a compliment.As the subtitle states, this is a book about the union of psychology and spirituality, or specifically, how psychotherapy and spirituality are so close, they are almost one and the same Having been through [...]

    20. I have run across this book so many times in used bookstores that at some point, I don t know when, it started to indicate in my mind that a store was overstocked with generic titles I periodically stop in at thrift stores hoping to salvage some prophetic oracle from the ravages of being sandwiched and left to die a slow death between the James Pattersons and Julie Garwoods of the bargain aisles and there this book can be found in droves The title, extrapolated from a poem by the great poet Robe [...]

    21. This book wasn t absolutely terrible, but it was terrible It has nothing to do with a Road Less Traveled and there is virtually no unifying theme to it whatsoever If you can get through the author s self congratulation of himself and all psychoanalysts you can actually find some very good points in the first few sections But as the book progresses it gets worse and worse The finial section is absolutely horrible It s about God and some shit about Jesus I couldn t bare to read it all the way thro [...]

    22. I loved sections I III Section IV turned pretty biblical on me, and very fast, although I got the point Going into section IV, it was a solid 4 stars Afterwards, I m not sure so much Maybe that might change as my spirituality grows, but it just seemed like I was reading the bible instead of a book on Psychology What I Learned From This Book what a freaking loaded question this is you always take out of something what you want to take out of it As Mr Pirsig would state, I took out of the book wha [...]

    23. Initially, I was intrigued and really enjoyed this book Then I got to the Grace section It all went downhill from there, and quickly It seems very jumbled as to the actual point of this book until the Grace section where Peck goes wacko with the God talk Even for a Christian or person of faith, I would imagine that his ideas are far out there As an atheist, I was dumbfounded by the abrupt bullshit and disappointed that a book with such potential came to a screeching halt I have never not finishe [...]

    24. Loy Machedo s Book Review The Road Less Travelled A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth by M Scott PeckIt amazes me to know I had purchased the book when I was 19 years old without any knowledge of its contents or even an understanding of what psychology was all about In fact even though my grasp of the English language was still in its infancy, the only driving force that compelled me to buy this book was the big bold red letters printed at the bottom of the cover Th [...]

    25. I enjoyed reading The Road Less Traveled as I felt as though the author, Dr Peck, was an older and much wiser friend intent on guiding me out of my current pathology The book is written by a psychiatrist and seeks to help the reader explore her life through her preconceived notions and definitions of love, the self and personal values Using a gentle voice and clear examples the author grapples with profound life questions For example, Dr Peck addresses the ways in which each person s unconscious [...]

    26. I give this book five stars because I can honestly say that reading it has made me a better person I have plenty of criticisms, which I will get to, but the bottom line is that there are a lot of difficult truths in this book and it stands as a challenge and a guide to the reader to progress and develop beyond where you may be comfortable I do not often read or like this genre of book, but my mom has been recommending this book to me for years and I finally borrowed her copy which incidentally w [...]

    27. The Road Less Traveled will make you realize that you CAN take charge of your life and your destiny It is a journey toward self acceptance that will affirm that life is worth living It is one of the best books I have ever read.I was introduced to the book when I first began 12 step recovery over twenty years ago I have had a long road to travel in coming to terms with my past and learning to accept myself This is a powerful book for anyone who has come from a troubled background and who wants to [...]

    28. I can t believe I didn t like this book as much as I thought I would I listened to the audio and it it came across as stiff So the narration didn t match up to the message This repetitive than I like and it had a dated feel to it, as well I think during this past year, I ve read better books on the subject, so maybe this book suffers by comparison.

    29. The Road Less Traveled begins with two very basic premises suffering is integral to life and avoidance of challenge is a characteristic of human nature What follows is a selection of case studies from M Scott Peck s pyschotherapeutic practice Each of them illustrating the remarkably creative ways we let our emotions circumvent rationality in decision making, from the mundane to the life altering We so easily choose the path of myopic, infantile, self destructive behavior, because remaining uncon [...]

    30. I didn t hate this book, but didn t enjoy it either, and I think it s because this book targets older readers particularly those with children But I have to praise the book for it s continuous reminder to the reader that life is hard and the sooner you realise that and tackle the challenges that come with life, the Freer you ll be
