really liked it
Read in January, 2005

I would recommend this book to anyone who feels like they need some kind of answer to life's bigger questions. I learned so much from J.C. He is truly one of the good guys... Although I have to say to those of you who haven't read this: This book is basically just a transcription of an interview that Bill Moyers conducted with Joseph Campbell. This interview was filmed and PBS did a 4 or 5-part special and you can get the DVDs from Netflix. The book is great and you should read it, but I would also recommend watching the DVDs. Hearing JC speak really makes a lot of this material come to life. You can hear him stress certain things and emphasize points that you may gloss over if you're just reading it.
