Críticas

From the acclaimed author of The Road Less Traveled comes the personal story of his own journey of self-discovery. On a three-week spiritual quest with his wife to see the ancient megalithic stones in the countryside of Wales, England, and Scotland, he gained insight into such issues as parenthood, holiness, romance, art, and his own shortcomings.

An excellent book, in my opinion. The author writes clearly, explaining some of his theories about life, psychotherapy, spirituality and more. He manages to avoid the extremes of either technical jargon or condescension as he writes to educate the general public.

Much of what he wrote made a lot of sense to me, helping me see (among other things) why some people are difficult to understand or communicate with. Written from a broadly Christian perspective but with the emphasis on personal choice, and acknowledgement of many religious paths during the process of growth.

Highly recommended. Not necessary to have read the author's first book.
