9780553373172: A World Waiting to Be Born: Civility Rediscovered

Just as The Road Less Traveled  provided hope and guidance for individuals seeking  growth, this major new work by M. Scott Peck,  M.D., offers a needed prescription for our deeply  ailing society. Our illness is   Incivility--morally destructive patterns of  self-absorption, callousness, manipulativeness, and  materialism so ingrained in our routine behavior that we  do not even recognize them. There is a deepening  awareness that something is seriously wrong with  our personal and organizational lives. Using  examples from his own life, case histories, and  dramatic scenarios of businesses that made a conscious  decision to bring civility to their organizations ,  Dr. Peck demonstrates how change can be effected  and how we and our organizations can be restored to  health. This wise, practical, and radical book is  a blueprint for achieving personal and societal  well-being.

From the Back Cover:

"A peck of hardheaded, kindhearted advice; the author's best since [ The Road Less Traveled.]-- Kirkus Reviews

"An extremely important book...Dr. Peck gives us powerful new reasons for hope and confidence in our personal ability to change ourselves and the world."--Vice President Al Gore, author of Earth In The Balance: Ecology And The Human Spirit

From AudioFile:

Scott Peck retired from psychiatry when his classic book, The Road Less Traveled, and its sequels and spin-offs took off with the self-help crowd (AudioFile, Jan '93). In his latest offering, Peck explains his concept of community. Peck then describes community in terms of his philosophy of love, discipline and evil, and applies all this to corporate settings. The author reads his own work in a voice which is breezy but warm, strong yet soft, assuring while compelling. Classical music provides transitions from one segment to another. In short, this program is vintage Peck. D.W.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
