Afterword...:

Afterword... Peck relates comments and questions from some readers of a prior edition of this book. Some questioned the efficacy of psychotherapy. Many, however, contributed letters and other things that were enriching. If you think you need a therapist, don’t hesitate to shop around. Do trust your feelings and intuitions. Is he or she genuinely caring? Ask the therapists take on issues that are important to you. Word of mouth is a good way to get started in your search. The Road Less Travelled (Grace) by Scott Peck
