Dr. M. Scott Peck has inspired millions by combining the deepest insights of psychiatry with those of religion. In this second of a three volume audio series based on his best-selling book People of the Lie, Dr. Peck once again integrates religious teaching with the science of psychology as he offers hope for healing one of society's most persistent failings: human evil.

In this second volume, Dr. Peck uses real-life examples to demonstrate how we can be dramatically affected by the presence of evil in our relationships and provides insight on how we can overcome it.

Told in Dr. Peck's warm and accessible style, People of the Lie, Volume 2 continues his groundbreaking and compelling exploration of the essence of evil, and enhances our ability to understand and to cope with this age-old problem.

    " Actually, I am not sure how to feel about this book. Yes and No. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 2/17/2014

    " This is an interesting pschological study about evil personality types. I found it facinating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leanne Ellis | 2/12/2014

    " Alternated between highly thought-provoking and uncomfortably unreadable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maryjacinta Silva | 2/7/2014

    " This book I consider a must read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather C. | 2/6/2014

    " It's difficult to rate this book with stars...it's not a particularly enjoyable read--in fact, it admits to making the reader rather uncomfortable. But it is an important look at people who, well, use their craziness to make other people feel crazy. Dr. Peck would cringe at that summary, but there it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 2/1/2014

    " The scary side of human nature "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan | 1/26/2014

    " This is a book describing the insidiousness of evil, often wrought by non-action and passivity, but also by attacking others for your own jealousy, paranoia, projections, etc. He describes clients who demonstrate his points, which I have also seen in my office and in life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben Batchelder | 1/14/2014

    " Evil exists, and people who tell and live lies personify it. Good luck understanding it. Awareness of its existence may be the most important step, which this book helps you take. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hans | 1/12/2014

    " Disturbing book. I was unable to finish it all the way because it started to depress me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debby | 12/30/2013

    " great topic....I think the book would be more balanced if it had a few more examples of evil in men, most of the evil is seen in women. He might also be a little biased against people he personally feels a revulsion towards. Being disorganized and annoying does not make a person evil. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 12/25/2013

    " The subject matter of this book is so fascinating to me that I had to enjoy it. My only disappointment was that Peck did not seem to explore the motivations of really, truly wicked people... although I suppose part of his aim was to expose the banality of evil, and how commonplace it can be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiina | 11/26/2013

    " Chilling reality! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JoAnn | 11/11/2013

    " In this book, Dr. Peck puts forth his ideas regarding a psychology of evil. He seeks to describe and explain how to identify evil in individuals and groups. I found much I recognized in his descriptions of the manifestations of evil. Thought-provoking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 11/7/2013

    " Love all of his books. Start with Road Less Traveled and if you love that book, then read the others! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 10/16/2013

    " One of the strangest books I've ever read. It was assigned reading for a graduate course. Still scratching my head on this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Adamson | 4/12/2013

    " Great book. Not as good as The Road Less Traveled, but a very good read nonetheless. I read this just after finishing my first year of grad school at NYU. Very helpful in understanding some of my own and others behavior. What a tangled web we can weave sometimes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 3/24/2013

    " This is a profound and scary book, at least for me, because it is convicting of the evil, the manipulation, the narcissism, and the lies that lie within me Read it with a repentant heart and it will transform your life and your relationships. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marti | 3/7/2013

    " you don't want to believe it but you need to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April Welch | 10/10/2012

    " Most people don't want to see lying as evil - what if it is the heart of evil! What if it is those people "who seem innocent but when you get down to it are subtly manipulating everyone around them" that are truly the most destructive in society? This book examines that idea! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna | 6/6/2012

    " A real eye opener... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Freya | 5/24/2011

    " Quite interesting in patches but very hard to take seriously given some of the God/Satan/Evil content. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 4/14/2011

    " Intense and very self stirring. Caution when reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 2/25/2011
