really liked it
Read in January, 1988 — I own a copy , read count: 3

I initially read this because of the frequent references to it from other books, such as those by Joseph Campbell. It was not as good as I wanted it to be — not sure if it is the translation, or ...? On my to-be-read-again list.

Addendum; Re-read in 2009.
Well, I've gotten round to reading this again, and it is far FAR better than my first perusal. In large part this is because I have acquired enough knowledge to understand better the arguments presented in the book, and to weigh them against other philosophical writers. Right now it is chock-a-block full of post-it-note markers, for me to re-re-read passages. [And it has been involving itself in the smallest of synchronicity-petites, odd little interactive co-incidences and overlapping with people and other readings.]
