People of the Lie: The Hope for Healing Human Evil - M. Scott Peck This book was interesting and strange. This theory that human evil rests not in graphic acts but in small lies designed to hide is fascinating. I liked how he showed that the type of people most destructive in their relationships with others are the people who refuse to recognize others as having feelings as valid as their own and use "scapegoats" instead of taking responsibility for their mistakes. About 2/3rds of the way through the book veers way off course into exorcisms and the Vietnam war. Coupled with a lot of 80's terminology that's become very outdated it was jarring at best.
