‘Jung’s single-minded humility, his passion to unearth truth, is one of the loveliest impressions to emerge from this absorbing and many-sided book.’ The Times
‘He was on a giant scale … he was a master physician of the soul in his insights, a profound sage in his conclusions. He is also one of Western Man’s great liberators.’ J. B. Priestley, Sunday Telegraph
‘Can sometimes rise to the heights of a Blake or a Nietzsche or a Kierkegaard … like any true prophet or artist he extended the range of the human imagination … to be able to share Jungian emotions is surely an almost necessary capacity of the free mind.’ Polly Toynbee, Observer

This book is quite long, and usually I get bored of any book after 200 pages. Not this time. Each page is full of new and fascinating insights, the result of Jung's long and thorough exploration of the wisdom of many different cultures. Once you have read it, you are likely to want to read all the rest of his work, as if it is the first step on a long journey of discovery. You won't be wasting your time. Through Jung, like other masters of the soul, you may come to understand your self and your times far better. Then, as he would have wished, you will no longer need him. Genuine objective insight only comes through total subjectivity. Make sure you read this book.
In this book, Jung revealed much wisdom and insights from his early years up to his remainder of his life. One even can learn about oneself from his life. It is very much worth reading. It is both fascinating and inspiring.
My favorite line of Jung from this book:
"As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being."
But - this meeting with Jung and his world has left - and is going to leave - a lasting impact on me. I have ordered more books by him, so this one proved to be a good starting point. It gives you a glimpse into a real remarkable mind and man. Humble, doing as good as he could he says, someone else might have done better, but he did what he managed to. Now that is one of history's greatest understatements. His journey through religion, alchemy, gnosticism, the occult, psychoanalysis, the world of dreams and visions is a remarkable one. His strange visions in Italy and during meetings with Freud are food for lasting reflections and afterthought. The chapter on life after death is touching. The story of the Seven sermons for the dead likeways.
My only small "objection" is that some small parts of the first chapters - on his childhood and education - might be a bit repetitive. Cutting down 20-30 pages could have made the first half of the book slightly more tight. But then, his strolling through life, following his sudden impulses and no tight scheme is shown in this respect too, so who am I to make this objection?
Buy it - read it - and don't you ever forget it!

There are some great points in here, however they are interspersed with a lot of 'waffle'. If you are looking for an overview of Jung, look elsewhere. Read morePublished 2 months ago by HairyBumMan
