Partial Introduction from The Road Less Traveled

The ideas herein presented stem from the most part, from my day to day clinical work with patients as they struggle to avoid or to gain even greater levels of maturity consequently, this book contains portions of many actual case histories.

Psychotherapy is seldom a brief process, but since I have, of necessity, focused on the highlights of a case, the reader may be left with the impression that the process is one of drama and clarity.

I would also like to apologize for continually referring to God in the traditionally masculine image, but I have done so in the interest of simplicity rather than from any rigidly held concept as to gender.

Life is difficult. With this first sentence Scott Peck revolutionized the way we live our lives and it is no less true today than when it was written 20 years ago.

I have not personally read this book but I have listen to audio tapes from Further along the Road Less Traveled and I always wanted to go back and get the audio to listen to The Road Less Traveled.

Further along the Road Less Traveled was a pretty good audio.
