I have, it's a great book. I like M. Scott Peck and have two of his other books. In Search Of Stones is one of my faves.

Was Peck not a huge philanderer and adulterer?

Maybe a long walk in the Hindu Kush would do it?

I read this book with a high lighter. Great book to help me understand the FOO issues in my H and my MIL. Peck admits his failures and it probably made him recognize the issues for his research and books.
