5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent in-depth account of Joseph Campbell, 10 Aug. 2003

This review is from: The Hero's Journey (Hardcover)
This book was well designed. The introduction by Phil Counsineau alone is worth the price. Instead of hidden away in some appendix, the Chronology of Joseph Campbell is up front before reading the details. The book is written mostly in a question and answer format.
Next striking thing is the pictures that accompany the text makes you feel that some one knew that Joseph was going to be some one of interest and sent a professional photographer to follow his life. He has pictures with and/or (Buffalo Bill Cody, Black Elk, James Joyce, Jiddu Krishnamurti, Thomas Mann, Karlfried Graf Dürkheim, Carl Jung, Linda Ronstadt, …) of all kinds of people that you would think came from different eras, most impressive is his portrait University of Paris.
One thing you will notice of Joseph Campbell is that he has a way of looking at life that most people do not until it it pointed out. Some times he will seem to be just telling you the most mundane information and all of a sudden ties it to a point that was overlooked.
Reading this book on his life will give you a better insight as to his works.
