This book is a section by section commentary on Jung's Mysterium Coniunctionis. Alchemy is a confusing topic by itself. Jung's interpretation of it is highly nuanced and can easily be confusing as well.

If you are interested in Jung's work, you really need to *own* a copy of this, because I can see this being referenced time and again. Very informative, even to the layperson. Reading Grimm's fairy tales this year, I often became perplexed by some of the lesser known selections... I felt they were confusing, or had little message to gather. This text helped me to grasp the symbolism, which turned the simplest tale into something deeper. I know I will revisit this often!

This book got me started on alchemy that is discussed in some detail in other jungian books.
Once I finished the book, moved on to other books that discussed aspects of the underlying principles of ancient alchemy, it made the text material easier to understand.
