I read this back at Grinnell College, back when I was picking up and reading everything I could find about C.G. Jung and Analytical Psychology. Looking back, it was nothing special, just another rehash of the Master's ideas.

I read only a ten page excerpt from this text for my research on shadow, and I enjoyed the section. Looking through the table of contents, I see the book explores complex, archetypes, myths, psychological types, persona, anima, animus, and self, to mention a few of Jung's important terms and concepts. This will definitely be a must-read as I continue my education in Depth Psychology.

This is probably the best introduction to Carl Jung's work. It explains key concepts clearly, with depth and insight. The inclusion of examples from clinical experience add to the richness.

The clearest, and perhaps the most useful, overview of Jungian psychology that I've read to date.
