A disappointment. Just like The Road Less Traveled, Peck starts out with great promise of psychological insight, but then falls into the familiar perspective of pervasive Christianity. This book even covers the use of exorcism as a cure for demonic evil(!) Its one redeeming portion covers a fascinating character that gets the better of him in what turns out to be a contest of wills in the guise of therapy.
