M Scott Peck


First of all I am new to this site and hope I am going to be able to come back to this later. I read The road less travelled about a year ago and it made a lot of sense, especially the bits about relationships with parents and partners. I read it again recently and the second time it blew my head off, it just seems to be so spot on. It also brings home how most people -including myself- go through large parts of their lives completely deluded about vital issues such as where happiness lies, how to communicate, who is responsible for our woes. With this book as a point of reference, I would like to discuss life, happiness and relationships (with friends, relatives and lovers).

The Road Less Travelled.
I read this book in Re-Hab, as advised by my then counsellor. Till such time i was in blind and ignorant to what had gone on in my life. There are so many answers to so many questions that the likes of myself needed answering. It blew me away too. I want to read it again some 12mth after first reading it. I remember a lot from my first time but ,like you, expect to be launched during the re-read and i can't wait. One issue above most stood out to me and that concerned how our perceptions of the world change.

I can't wait to read all of his books. He has become my favorite author. I recomend it to all. It's funny how we can never see what's right infront of us. We have to have a guide to tell us. Someone outside of our box has to decribe it for us.

I would like to sit some of the irresponsible sh*ts that are happily sending our planet to hell in a hand cart down and make them read this book.
Liberal facism kids it's the only wasy we'll get through all this.

I read, Further Along The Road Less Traveled and found it to be insightful. What had the most impact on me was the part about the spiritual wasteland that one must go through before waking up. I think the underlying theme of Peck's work is existential.
