Scott peck has put together this anthology of quotes on the virtues of happiness, courage, compassion, purity, perseverance, courtesy, faith, goodness, love, respect, strength, and wisdom. If you have a natural philosophical bent you will find most of the quotes in this 384 page book to be quite profound. If you have no interest in a collection of quotes then don't buy this book.

In Peck's usual style this book on virtues is thought provoking. It confirms some of our cherished values and challenges us to include others. The introductory sections with anecdotes helps to frame and carry the pith quotes through the book/audio. Having two voices on the audio is helpful.

I'm a sucker for quotes -- I have a huge collection saved in Microsoft Office to append to my e-mail signatures. This book is an excellent resource for inspirational quotes, divided into various categories (love, courage, faith, friendship, etc.)

Reading a large anthology of quotes like this is kind of like trying to drink from a fire hydrant. That's all I have to say.
