Martin does not write for a popular fix-it market, but for the true explorer of their inner depths - for the full human being who wants to grow and discover their own complexity and paradoxes. Although now out of print, this is still a wonderful book to take into oneself.

I'm going to amend my comment about "reductionism." In ONE place, Martin refers to Freud's sexual reductionimsm, to which I heartily concur. Others in the Depth Movement, such as Dr. Groddeck, considered the id to be much more than only sexual in nature, but a kind've life-force, and the source of creativity and other things of great value. BTW, Groddeck was the one who came up with the term "id."
Yet, overall, this is a good survey of Depth Psychology.
