The Road Less Traveled - M. Scott Peck

When I read this book in high school, I knew immediately that I would pursue psychology. This is an excellent introduction to key psychological concepts, including those of Freud and Jung, and is one of the first attempts at specifically integrating psychology and Christianity.

One of the ideas that I find invaluable is Peck's discussion of human beings needing to work against "entropy," the tendency of things toward greater disorder.

Although sometimes Peck's theology runs off the road, this remains a classic for fans of self-help and students of psychology.
