Overview

A World Waiting to Be Born: Civility Rediscovered by M. Scott Peck

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.

A very enlightening book particularly if you're undergoing some sort of crisis in your real life. Personally I find the first one or two sections more helpful than the last one on organizations. I specifically find elucidating and helpful the author's opinion on consciousness and societal civility. Although I'm a little turned off by his disregard for secularism, I still would recommend this book for readers who wish to gain a deeper insight into their everyday lives when it comes to effectively interacting with those around them.
