Jane Bain has written a fascinating book outlining the way myths, legends and folk tales affect us. Ingrained in the human psyche, twelve archetypes resonate in our everyday lives, peopling the myths we respond to and colouring how we relate to others and how we have built our own life stories. The archetypes are presented in a broad range of international myths, each of which captures deftly the charming cadence of its source.

She goes on to guide us through the process of developing our own scripts--scripts that can redirect our lives into life stories of our own choosing.

This book breaks through psychological buzz-words and presents an intriguing concept in a straightforward, useful manner, offering tasks along the way to help the reader apply the knowledge most effectively.

An insightful book--a delightful reading experience.
