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.
A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth 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, Dr M. Scott Peck, a practising psychiatrist, 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 recognize 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 a book that can show you how to embrace reality and yet achieve serenity and a richer existence. Hugely influential, it has now sold over six million copies - and has changed many people's lives round the globe. It may change yours.
Dr M. Scott Peck was a leading psychiatrist and bestselling author of inspirational self-help books. A graduate of both Harvard University and Case Western Reserve, Dr Peck served in the Army Medical Corps from 1963 to 1972 and had a private practice in psychiatry from 1972 to 1983. In 1984, he and his wife Lily helped found the Foundation for Community Encouragement, a nonprofit organisation which he devoted much of his time to until his death in 2005. See the author website:
"A brilliant self-help book, which I found genuinely inspiring... I love this book, it's my spiritual refuge and I'm certain everyone will find something to console them within these pages" -- Boy George Sunday Express "Magnificent... This is not just a book but a spontaneous act of generosity written by an author who leans towards the reader for the purpose of sharing something larger than himself" Washington Post "The granddaddy of self-help manuals and among the wiser of them" The Times "Sound advice on how to build a happy life" Daily Mail
An eye-catching repackage of the ten million copy bestseller, perfect for the new year and the new you
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)
