A World Waiting to Be Born
Civility RediscoveredUnknown - 1993
Just as The Road Less Traveled nbsp;nbsp;provided hope and guidance for individuals seekingnbsp;nbsp;growth, this major new work by M. Scott Peck,nbsp;nbsp;M.D., offers a needed prescription for our deeplynbsp;nbsp;ailing society. Our illness isnbsp;nbsp; Incivility --morally destructive patterns ofnbsp;nbsp;self-absorption, callousness, manipulativeness, andnbsp;nbsp;materialism so ingrained in our routine behavior that wenbsp;nbsp;do not even recognize them. There is a deepeningnbsp;nbsp;awareness that something is seriously wrong withnbsp;nbsp;our personal and organizational lives. Usingnbsp;nbsp;examples from his own life, case histories, andnbsp;nbsp;dramatic scenarios of businesses that made a consciousnbsp;nbsp;decision to bring civility to their organizations ,nbsp;nbsp;Dr. Peck demonstrates how change can be effectednbsp;nbsp;and how we and our organizations can be restored tonbsp;nbsp;health. This wise, practical, and radical book isnbsp;nbsp;a blueprint for achieving personal and societalnbsp;nbsp;well-being.
