I like M Scott Peck, but this book was not as influencial to me as the Road Less Travelled. Best Seller.

ANNOTATION
In this 300,000 copy best-seller he uses the same approach in a strikingly original analysis of human evil; he points the way to healing it, starting with ourselves.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
With his classic best-selling bookThe Road Less Traveled, Dr. M. Scott Peck has introduced over three million readers to an integration of the deepest insights of psychiatry with those of religion. In People of the Lie, an absorbing and equally inspiring companion volume, Dr. Peck utilizes the same approach to probe brilliantly the essence of human evil. People who are evil attack others instead of facing their own failures. Peck demonstrates the havoc these People of the Liework in the lives of those around them. He presents, from cases encountered in his psychiatric practice, unforgettably vivid incidents of evil in everyday life. This disturbing, fascinating book offers a strikingly original approach to the age-old problem of human evil.
