My brother-in-law gave me this book. It sat on my shelf for several years before I got around to reading it. Maybe I needed to wait. Because when I did read, I was hooked by the first paragraph. It is not the normal self help book. In fact, it's not a self help book at all (although, that's where you'll find it in the library). It doesn't give you answers. It's the questions that are important. He explores archetypes: character, situation, story lines...just to name a few. He expores myths, too. I find echoes of Joseph Campbell and Robert Bly in all his writings. I'm lucky because he seems to be speaking directly to me. That kind of author. I've used some of his other stuff in my Humanities class, as well as my AP classes studying Thoreau and Emerson. Read with an open mind that is inquisitive and you'll be surprised what will happen.
