Paved the way For more Jungian Books,
This review is from: Introducing Jung (Paperback)
From the moment i picked up the book i DID not want to put it down and i rarely find books that have that effect on me. The book was so exciting and fun at the same time to read because it gave me the life story of jung as well as the important discoveries that not only gave him his reputation but has brought understanding to those that have read his work. This book will take you through the experiences of Jung in his life that lead him to the discoveries. Naturally the book also covers his life experience in the Viena Cirle that he and other Pychologits including Freud were members.
The book covers every piece of work by JUNG that you will ever want to know about in the right detail. Because you get a chronological view of jung and his work it is almost as if you are there with him through his extraordinary journey though science and spiritualism, Alchemy, Astrology and Psychology among other things.The illustrations in the book also weave into the writing that accompanies it. By far the balance between the writings and the illustrations in this book is the best in comparison to the other "Introductory books" . I only wish that i could forget some of the books contents so that i can read it again.
