“Scott Peck is a psychiatrist turned author and lecturer. His name is a household word with the self-help crowd. In People of the Lie, Peck takes on the topic of evil...The presentations are consistently well done. Peck reads with a soft, yet strong voice that is both self-assured and reassuring.”  AudioFile
