it was amazing
Read in October, 2008

I am still reading this one. I'm a slow reader when it comes to non-fiction but this book is absolutely RIVETING. I had no idea that psychology could feel so... supernatural.

** ** ***

My copy is a very old, tiny and densely printed copy I got for free from a psychology library in San Francisco that was moving to a new location and clearing out the stacks. I taped together the spine where it was started to fall apart. I'm still only about 100 pages in but it is UNBELIEVABLY fascinating and I can't understand why I have never read any Jung before. Brilliant and bizarre!

message 1: by Reed (new) - added it

Reed Jung was definitely into the "supernatural." You may also dig Otto Rank and Rollo May (if you haven't dug into them already).

Joann If you can, find a hard cover edition. The illustrations and photos are excellent.

Andrew have you finished it yet?
