Confronting and solving problems is a painful process which most of us attempt to avoid. And the very avoidance results in greater pain and an inability to grow both mentally and spiritually. Drawing heavily on his own professional experience, leading psychiatrist Dr M. Scott Peck suggests ways in which facing our difficulties - and suffering through the changes - can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understanding. He discusses the nature of loving relationships: how to recognise true compatibility, how to distinguish dependency from love, how to become one's own person, and how to be a more sensitive parent. This is the bestselling self-help book that will change the way you live, and love, for good.
A brilliant and inspiring work, justifiably a bestseller in the USA, which presents a no-nonsense guide to life, the Universe and everything from an inner perspective. It's written by a practising psychiatrist who doesn't shirk painful facts (life is painful; problems won't just go away; choices are painful; our problems are just that - ours) yet remains sympathetic to human frailty and the everyday dilemmas of life. Peck is expressive, insightful and often moving, unafraid either to reveal his own weaknessess or to pinpoint those of others with startling clarity. Highly recommended to everyone. (Kirkus UK)
