About the Author
M. Scott Peck, M.D. is the author of the New York Times best-seller The Road Less Traveled, with six million copies in print. His other books include Further Along the Road Less Traveled, The Road Less Traveled and Beyond, Meditations from the Road and Golf and the Spirit.
Scott Peck is a psychiatrist turned author and lecturer. His name is a household word with the self-help crowd. In People of the Lie, Peck takes on the topic of evil. The"volume" cited is not an abridgment but a group of case studies from the first chapters of the book, along with commentary. The presentations are consistently well done. Peck reads with a soft, yet strong voice that is both self-assured and reassuring. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
The stories shared by M. Scott Peck (RIP) are true, chilling, deeply disturbing and may potentially initiate a gag reflex for many decent folks who have lived somewhat sheltered, intentionally ethical and productive lives...the lucky ones whose lives have remained untouched by anything of this nature. However, after having spent many years resisting the idea of labeling anything or anyone as 'evil' I had the fortune (or misfortune) of personally coming face-to-face with more than one individual who was finally able to convince me otherwise. I'm not sure if the terms psychopath, sociopath or borderline personality disorder are better suited than 'evil' for the people that we encounter in this insightful book -- scary that it happens to provide a remarkably accurate profile of many present-day religious, political and business leaders -- but these people do exist so we must prepare and arm ourselves with knowledge in order to keep moving forward no matter what we find. Ironically, this book makes Stephen King novels seem rather tame. Sadly the truth really is stranger than fiction.
I hope it's able to help others as much as it helped me. As I mentioned, I wish he had written more books on this topic and I hope the awareness continues so you are able to piece together the trauma from your childhood raising or even just right now if you are currently in it. Highly Recommend!
