This book offers a needed prescription for our ailing society. Our illness is incivility: destructive patterns of self-absorption, callousness, manipulativeness, and materialism so ingrained in our routine behaviour that we do not recognise them. Using examples from his own life, case histories, and dramatic scenarios, Dr. Peck demonstrates how change can be effected and how we and our organizations can be restored to health.
In this book Dorothy Baruch has presented as fiction the treatment of a seven-year-old boy and his parents. The author portrays the techniques employed in psychotherapy with children in layman’s terms. It presents a sincere picture of what goes on in the therapist's office in the treatment of a child. It also presents to the reader some of the basic psychoanalytic phenomena as they appear clinically in treatment: sibling rivalry, the Oedipal conflict, the child's fantasies about pregnancy, and its deeply repressed aggression.
Peck suggests ways in which confronting and resolving our problems, and suffering through the changes, can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understanding. Dr. Peck discusses the nature of loving relationships: how to recognise true compatibility, how to distinguish dependency from love, how to become one's own person and how to be a more sensitive parent.

Describing the nature of the child and her method, Maria Montessori explains in this text her beliefs - that once the general principles of her method have been grasped, the parts dealing with its material application are extremely simple. Gone are teachers who wear out their lungs maintaining discipline, and verbal instruction is replaced by "material for development", which affords children the opportunity of teaching themselves by their own efforts. The teacher thus becomes a director of the children's own spontaneous work.
This book explains the Montessori philosophy. Emphasising that children from birth on should be treated with respect, the same respect we would have when we have a guest in the house. She talks about the newborn period and one wishes our kids doctors would read it, then she writes about kids and teens and their relationship with their parents.

Satish Kumar draws on his personal experience of making pilgrimages and also his understanding of the spiritual traditions of both East and West. The book takes the form of conversations about both the inner and outer aspects of pilgrimage. If we want to tread the pilgrim’s path, we need to go beyond ideas of good and evil, and to be dedicated to our quest to our natural calling. We need to shed not only our unnecessary material possessions, but also our burdens of fear, anxiety, doubt and worry. Being on a pilgrimage doesn’t necessarily mean travelling from one place to another: it means a state of mind, a state of consciousness, a state of fearlessness.
