Publisher's Summary

A society of rugged individualists and economic competitors.... A world of nuclear politics and uncontrollable forces.... For many, modern living means loneliness, disaffection, apathy and isolation.

Is there an escape? In a startling, life-affirming work by one of America's foremost thinkers, Dr. M. Scott Peck examines the concept of community, its roots, its development and, most importantly, its rewards for contemporary America. In this audio, which features segments from a live lecture and narration by the author, Dr. Peck draws on his first-hand experiences and studies, and leads the way on a journey from isolation to togetherness, towards peace in our society and in the world - for the true fulfilment of all individuals!

©1987 M. Scott Peck (P)1987 Simon & Schuster

Good, but not his best.

Where does The Different Drum rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Lacks the grab your attention factor of the other Scott Peck books. This one is kind of a dud.

Disappointed again

Not the book I thought I was getting but merely commentary about and possibly excerpts from the book. I've read The Different Drum and this was not it. A well done teaser for the real thing nevertheless.

A Different Sound

While this does not sound anything like most of the audiobooks I’ve listened to before, it was still enjoyable. I was grateful that the concepts were communicated in a short time. Although it would have been better if the verbal fillers and hesitations weren’t there.
