The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth by M. Scott Peck

The Road Less Traveled (1978) is a personal and professional account of how you can live a more fulfilling life by practicing discipline and developing a better understanding of love, religion and grace. Certain pathways in life are less traveled because they’re more challenging, but, in this case, the path to enlightenment is also far more rewarding. Find out what steps you can take to grow and become a more balanced person.
