5.0 out of 5 stars In case of emergency, break glass ..., 29 Sep 2012
By 
This review is from: The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Mid-Life (Studies in Jungian Psychology by Jungian Analysts) (Paperback)
An absolute gem of a book - a real life saver. I lost track of the number of times I thought 'Oh my god, this man understands exactly what I have been feeling and going through!' A book full of wisdon, compassion, understanding and explanation about the unconscious processes that well up into our lives in midlife, often with such devastating and disorientating force. It's hard to imagine not benefiting from reading this book if lost in mid life - for me it was like a kind, wise man sitting down with me, calling me to wake up, explaining what was happening, and pointing to the way out. And re-reading it I never fail to learn something new. It should be behind glass on the wall in all homes, perhaps beside the fire-extinguisher, with the notice "In case of emergency, break glass here". Even better, perhaps one day in a wiser, more mature society men and women will be taught in advance what to expect in mid life and so find the process of the middle passage less painful and disorientating. I can't recommend the book highly enough.
