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

In Volume 3, Dr. Peck explores the largely unknown world of possession and exorcism. He also describes the unique relationship between group evil and individual evil, demonstrating how one person can affect or be affected by the actions and attitudes of a group. Drawing on his experiences as a psychiatrist and his observations of vivid incidents of evil in today's society. Dr. Peck takes us further into the dark side of the human psyche.

Told in Dr. Peck's characteristic warm and accessible style, People of the Life, Volume 3, concludes his groundbreaking exploration of the essence of evil and provides a spiritual understanding as well as a way of coping with this age-old problem.

    " This is not a pleasant or fun book to read, and in fact it is chilling but is still a must-read. Peck discusses the problem of Evil and his experience of psychiatric therapy with patients who appear manifestly evil . He arguesthat a spiritual or even religious dimension is required to aid in the understanding of human nature. "

    " First, let me make it clear that my 4 stars apply only to the first 180 pages or so of this book. I'm not going to bother rating the rest of it. That first 180 though... very interesting. I like Peck's definition of evil, and found myself underlining phrase after phrase that rang true to me. I believe that evil is very real, and that there are people who are evil - by choice, of course. As a graduate student of psychology, I found all of this very interesting, and I would definitely like to see evil studied scientifically and treated as a disorder. "

    " This was the first book about evil people I read and ten years later I decided to read it again. It doesn't fare well a second time. What I've understood about evil is that it is related to the condition of psychopathy or sociopathy or antisocial personality disorder. These are scientific terms describing a whole host of 'evil' traits listed by Dr Robert Hare: lack of conscience, empathy, grandiosity, scapegoating, lying etc. There are a number of far better reads like The Sociopath Next Door, Snakes In Suits, Without Conscience, etc which give a more scientific understanding of the problem. This book by contrast is subjective while pretending to be objective and I found myself disliking the author quite a bit. In his sessions with 'Charlene' I began rooting somewhat for his patient in their contest and felt her frustration with dealing with such a dork! Why did he continue therapy for so many years with her? Sorry, not for ethical reasons and helping a patient but because he was getting paid. The chapter on posession was where I bailed out this time around. "
