The Road Less Traveled A New Psychology of Love Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth316 pp Psychotherapy is all things to all people in this mega selling pop psychology watershed which features a new introduction by the author in this 25th anniversary edition His agenda in this tome which was first published in 1978 but didn't become a bestseller until 1983 is to reconcile the psychoanalytic tradition with the conflicting cultural currents roiling the 70s In the spirit of Me Decade individualism and libertinism he celebrates self actualization as life's highest purpose and flirts with the notions of open marriage and therapeutic sex between patient and analyst But because he is attuned to the nascent conservative backlash against the therapeutic worldview Peck also cites Gospel passages recruits psychotherapy to the cause of traditional religion he even convinces a patient to sign up for divinity school and insists that problems must be overcome through suffering discipline and hard work with a therapist Often departing from the cerebral and rationalistic bent of Freudian discourse for a mystical Jungian tone compatible with New Age spirituality Peck writes of psychotherapy as an exercise in love and spiritual growth asserts that our unconscious is God and affirms his belief in miracles reincarnation and telepathy Peck's synthesis of such clashing elements he even throws in a little thermodynamics is held together by a warm and lucid discussion of psychiatric principles and moving accounts of his own patients' struggles and breakthroughs Harmonizing psychoanalysis and spirituality Christ and Buddha Calvinist work ethic and interminable talking cures this book is a touchstone of our contemporary religio therapeutic culture Publishers WeeklyKeywords MIND BODY PSYCHOLOGY SOCIOLOGY RELIGION

    It gets four stars for the simple truth of the opening linesLife is difficult This is a great truth one of the greatest truths It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth we transcend it Once we truly know that life is difficult once we truly understand and accept it then life is no longer difficult Because once it is accepted the fact that life is difficult no longer mattersIt amazes me how much damage I have done by expecting life to be something other than difficult and how much easier my life is when I accept that it is difficult and that I will be uncomfortable
