An excellent and thought provoking book,
By A Customer
This review is from: Memories, Dreams, Reflections (Flamingo) (Paperback)
Jung manages to explain very comprehensively, in just four hundred or so pages, the bulk of his ideas spanning a long and illustrious career in psychoanalysis. His relationship with Freud is documented and at which point the dichotomy of their friendship was affirmed. this book is particularly good if you are interested in the field but don't want to jump straight into 'the deep end'. He is a good writer, and occasionally parts can get slightly difficult to understand, but if you stick with it, the wealth of knowledge that this book contains will be imparted to you. Myself, I find that reading this book has changed my perspective on life and prompted a new age of psychoanalysis within and without.
