Recommends it for: Students and serious thinkers.
Recommended to David by: I'm a big fan.
I know. It should not have taken me over eight months to read this, as it appears. Back in the month of April when I began, I had Aidan around a lot of the time and I just couldn't find the time!

Now, if you check it[and why would you?], you'll see that I actually read 32 other books since that time.

Anyway, this volume focused on the various modes of 'sacrifice' throughout the world and through man's recorded history, and contains some of Joe's wonderful conclusions. . .

. . . I won't give it away

Love this! It is too bad that Campbell could not complete this before his death.

And, it did not take me over four years to read this, just four years to get back to reading this! --From A Reader's Journal, by d r melbie.
