This book was a special experience, like when someone in the room says exactly what you were about to think. Several issues had been clouding the back of my mind, and this book made it rain! I've been studying Jung, feminism, and mythology for a while, and there were gaps between them that this book manages to bridge eloquently. I can't believe I put this one off for so long. It was truly balm for the soul.
