This review is from: Archetypes (Kindle Edition)
Nothing brand new if you already know about archetypes (take the test online [...] and it will save you reading the book) but the most annoying thing was when I downloaded the ebook I discovered there was no TOC (table of content which is also missing from the iBooks version). I understand that Caroline Myss was once a publisher. So I'd like add another archetype of a LAZY for the publisher (LEN in Polish since she's half Polish:). I'm sure they will add it at some point. I'm going to ask for a refund (for that reason) which would be interesting process for an ebooks. In the meantime, I used search to find information.
Quick read and good introduction to the subject for beginners (and advanced ones). It has good parts i.e. the overview and summary of each archetype as well as the checklist are quite good. The book is well structured. Or if you want the gist of the wisdom from this book read popular highlights which are quite spot on. Pop 'psychology' and typology. FINAL THOUGHTS: "Knowledge comes from discerning thought, from sober reflection of facts, history, and wisdom of the ages." There is knowledge (48 matches) and wisdom (49 matches) in this book (although there are different domains and wisdom is more sexy and desirable than knowledge). Now you know what a predominate archetype I am:)
How do you become wise though? Lao Tzu (in Tao Te Ching) offers a good tip: "If you want to become knowledgable - learn one thing a day. If you want to become wise - unlearn one thing a day." That is a true wisdom. Reading this book you can learn both.
