Years of pleasure
Would you consider the audio edition of The Road Less Traveled to be better than the print version?
I can't say that one is better than the other they both have their advantages, they both offer understanding and comfort in a crazy world. i like audio books at night when my eyes are too tired to read but love to dip into actual books when inspired at any other time of the day
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Road Less Traveled?
There are too many to even begin to describe, it just makes so much sense of the world and of us as people. If you believe in traditional values and are awakened or awakening to the unseen aspects of life (i.e your spiritual path) you will find a great deal to feed your soul here
Have you listened to any of M. Scott Peck’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Further down the road less traveled, the follow on book from this is very similar and as the title says, 'Further down the road less traveled'
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, its hard to stop once you start, I have read the book over and over, sometimes in one day, it has a healing calmness to it, its sensible, there are no 'far out concepts' to grasp. It makes sense
Any additional comments?
I have bought this a few times as presents for the people I love in my life, the last time to my 25 year old son who loved it as much as I do. I can't recommend this book highly enough

I bought the book years ago and some how I had just never got round to reading it. I saw it on Audible and bought it for my walk to work.
Some of the ideas contained are quite thought provoking and while I am not sure agree with it all, it has made me think a little more about certain aspects of my life.
The ideas and tools like delaying gratification that are contained in the book are 'basic' they are not always easy to apply.
Overall a great book that bas helped me to ask some serious questions of myself... only time will tell if these lead to any significant personal growth.
As a side note, the audio version has made me pick up the book in the hope of being able to find some additional levels and meaning within the work.

Revised Edition Highly Recommended
Buy this book! Put it into your digital library and listen to it once a year - just like your physical, or changing the batteries in the smoke alarm. Why, you ask?
The aspiration is to keep an internal balance as we face the increasing barrage of life stressors. Occasionally we need to "reset" and this book has supplied that, in part, for me. This is a slightly updated (for the better) version of the original that I have listened to and shared with others over the last 20 years. Scott Peck gives the same neutral performance in this revised reading that does not distract from the message and still affords easy listening.

you will keep coming back to this book
This short book has helped me to think clearly about the human condition. From the first chapter on he had my attention. His ideas about love and marriage, though brief, have become a bedrock for my marriage. I listened to this book three times over the past 10 years and will continue to listen for the rest of my life.
