One thing about Dr. Jung. He doesn't take an impersonal, detached view of his subjects, rather it is obvious he has lived the experiences he puts the analytic lens to, and that with heart. This is perhaps the most personal and heart wrenching work I have read from Jung. He faces the psyche of the male with all the gusto of a matador facing a prize bull.

Although we like to consider ourselves unique, I don't think hardly any of us could argue with Jung's insights on masculinity. It turns out there
Really liked what was, for me, a first introduction to Jung's writings. First off, I appreciated the fact that the introduction to this book acknowledges that the writings of Carl Jung are limited by his perspective in "a private practice in a western European country in the first half of the twentieth century," something that is rarely addressed when writers talk about either Jung or Freud.
