A World Waiting to Be Born: Civility Rediscovered

Peck, M. Scott Author

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

Book Description Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 224 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. M. Scott Peck is known for the profound psychological and spiritual journey on which he has guided millions of readers in his earlier bestselling books. A WORLD WAITING TO BE BORN is his long-awaited major new work of nonfiction, and it brings us the most urgent messages and the most important guidance toward change Dr. Peck has ever offered. We are a deeply ailing society. Our illness is incivility, by which Dr. Peck means conduct far more serious than a want of politeness - and going back in time much further than the blatantly gluttonous 1980s. Morally destructive patterns of self-absorption, callousness, manipulativeness, and materialism are so ingrained in our routine behavior that we often do not recognize them. In multiple ways we engage in subtle forms of unconscious hurtfulness toward ourselves and others - ways that have come to be accepted as the norm in American society. Yet there is a growing awareness that something is seriously wrong. If one of the many powerful themes in this book is that civil behavior has largely vanished from our lives - between individuals, in marriage and family life, in the workplace, and in organizations and businesses - another theme is that change is not only possible, it is achievable. We can learn to restore civility to ourselves and our institutions. We can make the spiritual commitment that is a cornerstone of civility. We have the power and the knowledge to become a truly civil society. This book slows us how. Using examples from his own life, case histories of patients who sought his psychiatric counsel, and dramatic scenarios of businesses that have made a conscious decision to bring civility to their organizations, Dr. Peck demonstrateswhere we have gone wrong and how change can be effected. The process is likely to be painful - change hurts - but without change there is no growth, and without growth we are half alive. Dr. Peck offers a concrete, step-by-step program to restore our organizations and ourselves t. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780553373172
