Publisher's Summary

Perhaps no book in this generation has had a more profound impact on our intellectual and spiritual lives than The Road Less Traveled. With sales of more than 7 million copies in the United States and Canada, and translation into more than 23 languages, it has made publishing history, with more than 10 years on The New York Times best seller list.

Told in a voice that is timeless in its message of understanding, The Road Less Traveled continues to enable us to explore the nature of loving relationships and leads us toward a new serenity and fullness of life. It helps us determine how to distinguish dependency from love; how to become a more sensitive parent; and ultimately how to become one's own true self.

Recognizing that "Life is difficult" and that the journey to spiritual growth is a long one, Dr. Peck never bullies his listeners, but gently guides them through the hard and often painful process of change toward a higher level of self-understanding.

Combining profound psychological insight and deep spirituality, this is an audiobook that provides inspiration and understanding.

    "Revised Edition Highly Recommended"

    Buy this book! Put it into your digital library and listen to it once a year - just like your physical, or changing the batteries in the smoke alarm. Why, you ask?

    The aspiration is to keep an internal balance as we face the increasing barrage of life stressors. Occasionally we need to "reset" and this book has supplied that, in part, for me. This is a slightly updated (for the better) version of the original that I have listened to and shared with others over the last 20 years. Scott Peck gives the same neutral performance in this revised reading that does not distract from the message and still affords easy listening.

    "The KING of all self-development books!"

    Originally written in 1978, but truth knows no time. I've read a number of similar books and I feel that this the greatest of them all. The author himself narratorates this title and put the same firm and lively tone used in his writing. It truely is an extrodinary book. If you seek a self-help book that doesn't always serves up advice with the sugar coating (like Dr. Phil) then this book is for you.

    "you will keep coming back to this book"

    This short book has helped me to think clearly about the human condition. From the first chapter on he had my attention. His ideas about love and marriage, though brief, have become a bedrock for my marriage. I listened to this book three times over the past 10 years and will continue to listen for the rest of my life.

    "Excellent"

    I have listened to this audio book several times since I purchased it less than 2 weeks ago and I love it. Peck addresses so many issues I can identify with in myself or in my loved ones it's great. This book is a MUST for those interested in improving themselves and their relationships.

    "the road less traveled"

    M.Scott Peck is an excellent communicator. Anyone that wants to understand themselves and the people around them can benefit tremendously from this book.

    It is excellent to get insights into his extensive clinical background as well as his subtle and yet very effective way of challenging the reader to know and thus commune with GOD.

    "Gentle Enlightening"
    What made the experience of listening to The Road Less Traveled the most enjoyable?

    I loved this book so much. Dr. Peck's insights are really profound. I'll have to listen to it again in the not-too-distant future, since i'm sure i'll get even more out of it on another go-round.


    What about M. Scott Peck’s performance did you like?

    He has a great speaking voice. Clear, comforting and serious at the same time.

    "Understandable why it's a classic"
    Would you try another book from M. Scott Peck and/or M. Scott Peck?

    Probably


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    n/a


    Would you be willing to try another one of M. Scott Peck’s performances?

    Yes, but this is one instance in which I would rather a narrative do the performance. M. Scott Peck's performance is very dry, makes subject seem boring


    Was The Road Less Traveled worth the listening time?

    Not for me personally


    Any additional comments?

    I've read many books along similar lines and was excited to be referred to this book but was disappointed in the message. For more of a beginner' s mind in spiritial practice, I think it would be excellent but for me personal, I didn't feel that I was gaining any new insight.

    "Years of pleasure"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Road Less Traveled to be better than the print version?

    I can't say that one is better than the other they both have their advantages, they both offer understanding and comfort in a crazy world. i like audio books at night when my eyes are too tired to read but love to dip into actual books when inspired at any other time of the day


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Road Less Traveled?

    There are too many to even begin to describe, it just makes so much sense of the world and of us as people. If you believe in traditional values and are awakened or awakening to the unseen aspects of life (i.e your spiritual path) you will find a great deal to feed your soul here


    Have you listened to any of M. Scott Peck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Further down the road less traveled, the follow on book from this is very similar and as the title says, 'Further down the road less traveled'


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, its hard to stop once you start, I have read the book over and over, sometimes in one day, it has a healing calmness to it, its sensible, there are no 'far out concepts' to grasp. It makes sense


    Any additional comments?

    I have bought this a few times as presents for the people I love in my life, the last time to my 25 year old son who loved it as much as I do. I can't recommend this book highly enough
