it was amazing
Read from February 18 to April 02, 2010

An amazing book. Despite the obvious level of intelligence and knowledge demonstrated by Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell, it's very readable and made me feel that I was witness to a conversation--as, in many ways, I was, since the book is based upon their taped interviews.

While there were points that I felt Campbell spoke with too much certainty, it's difficult to criticize him due to the extraordinary breadth and depth of his knowledge, which certainly outstrips mine. Far more often, however, my response was one of recognition, accompanied sometimes by a sense of agreement, other times by thoughtful contemplation of something new or profound.

I enjoyed reading this very much and will probably read it again; I also hope to watch the taped interviews some day.
