The Road Less Traveled: A New Psychology of Love, Traditional Values and Spiritual Growth

Spiritual and meditation books are difficult to review, because they're so personal. Either you're at the base of the ladder, or not. This book is full of direct self-help advice, as well as metaphysical explorations into God and the divine. I can definitely see how this book may be powerful for some people, but for whatever reason, it didn't deeply resonate with me. The parts about love were the highlight for me.


These are entirely subjective, and roughly try to capture my personal enjoyment and usefulness, and how likely I'd recommend it to others. Don't read too much into this unless you love my judgement. Rough guidelines:

A: Top quartile. Changed the way I think about something.

B: Worthwhile. I took away something useful.

C: Didn't hit, wouldn't directly recommend. Likely won't revisit.
