Even better My guess is that if you are looking up this book it is because you are familliar with Scott Peck's work and particulary with The Road Less Travelled. The Road Less Travelled had a profound impact on me in my early twenties - as I know it did millions of other people. Further Along the Road is just as good, if not better. I read it recently in my thirties and it felt like an extraordinarily wise and more mature book. I believe the man who wrote it, has grown in wisdom and maturity and he shares that here in a style which is, as always, clear, thought-provoking and above all affecting. I felt like I was in the presence of a real truth-seeker and a man who had come a good way down the Less Travelled Road himself, and was not afraid to admit his failings and pitfalls. I might add that after the Road less Travelled I bought a number of other Scott Peck books ( A Different Drum, A World WAiting to Be Born, People of the Lie) and was usually disappointed... read more
A Balanced & intimate book about Scott's quest to find Go d
By A Customer - January 6, 1998
It felt to me, like I was traveling along with Scott on his Journey towards spiritual growth. The more I read, the more interested I became: Here's a man who has traveled (as well as practiced) many different path to enlightenment, yet in the end he has the guts to say "I don't know...!". He gave me many practical hints on how to live life to the fullest, how to get a fresh picture of Jesus and many other, interesting subjects. I especially admired his willingness to reveal himself .Also, his Buddist philosophy of the paradoxal nature of beliefs is very refreshing. The only reason why I did not give it a 10 is because since reading: "Conversations with God", I cannot assign any other book with a higher mark. However, that does not take away from the day-today "hands-on' value of this book. I will definitely get the audio cassettes for those friends (and clients) of mine who could be greatly helped by a particular chapter from the book. Highly recommended for... read more
The First Fifty Pages Are Worth The Price.
By Russel Johannson "The Fad King" - December 5, 2005
In the first fifty pages of this book Dr. Peck really inspires me. These pages will be reread by me for many years to come. His words are an affirmation that good work will reap rewards, even if it is not in the form of instant gratification.
These first pages remind me that there is a lot more out there, and it helps me to refocus on what is truly important to me, to my family, and to the community I live in. Dr. Peck really speaks to the man in me who wishes to do his best for those around me, as well as helping me to fight back the more selfish man within me.
I find this to be a frankly written book, written plainly without unnecessary exercises in intellectual grandeur. He writes intelligently, passionately, and compassionately as Dr. Peck reminds you that he is just a subject to failings as the reader.
