Confronting and solving problems is a painful process that most of us attempt to avoid. And the very avoidance results in greater pain and an inability to grown both mentally and spiritually.
Drawing heavily on his own professional experience, Dr M. Scott Peck, a 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 recognise 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 7 million copies - and has changed many people's lives round the globe. It may change yours.
