Publisher's Summary

Dr. M. Scott Peck has inspired millions by combining the deepest insights of psychiatry with those of religion. In this first of a three volume audio series based on his best-selling book People of the Lie, Dr. Peck once again integrates religious teaching with the science of psychology as he offers hope for healing one of society's most persistent failings -- human evil.

In his characteristic warm and accessible style, Dr. Peck explains that while the notion of evil has been present in religious thought for centuries, the concept has not been fully addressed by the psychiatric community. Dr. Peck links the two to show us how truly evil people are not necessarily criminals but those among us who appear as upstanding members of society. Using individual case studies to present vivid incidents of human evil, Dr. Peck describes how these "People of the Lie" hide behind the facade of normalcy as they continue to plague our lives.

A groundbreaking and compelling audio program that explores the essence of evil, People of the Lie sets us on a path toward understanding and coping with this age-old program.

    Story
    "A Sentimental Journey"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Any friend looking for an idealized view of inverasity from a folk psychological perspective; this would be the perfect title. Scott Peck has indeed taken "the road less traveled", since modern neuroscience began to inform us psychologically.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Peck's discussion of a dishonest patient.


    What does M. Scott Peck and M. Scott Peck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dr. Scott Peck brings a blast from the past. It was valuable for me to familiarize again, our culture's pre-scienticic era, circa 1880 to 1985. Dr. Peck is the cultural icon for the bygone era, that still serves our general population.


    Do you think People of the Lie Vol. 1 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I am fairly sure this volume was adequate.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the neuroscience texts will offer more actual insight in socially discordant people.

    Story
    "It's basically just a sample"

    This volume includes about the introduction and first chapter (or maybe two) of the book. He gave one vignette (the story of the boy whose parents gave him the gun his brother used to commit suicide) and talked briefly about Erich Fromme, and then it was over. The entire printed book is short enough that I can't make sense of why it should have been either abridged or cut into three volumes. If I'd realized what I was getting, I'd have passed.

    Any additional comments?

    Will buy follow up books on subject by this author. I have and will continue to listen to this book as it gives insight at each pass.
