"British psychologist and longtime Tibetan Buddhist practitioner Rob Preece has given us one of the most illuminating unpackings of Tibetan tantra yet to emerge in the English language."--Mark Epstein, author of "Thoughts Without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective"
""The Psychology of Buddhist Tantra" succeeds in clarifying the nature of tantric practice. He does not seek to explain away the undeniably evocative and darkly potent language and imagery of tantra but to recognize them as transformative symbols of the rich complexity of our own inner lives."--Stephen Batchelor, author of "Buddhism without Beliefs"
"The ancient therapeutic wealth and alchemy of the East is skillfully integrated into the pragmatism of the West, creatively transforming the present-day individual."--"East and West Series"
"Draws on Jung's writings on Tantra and other Buddhist teachings to explore the rich symbolism and imagery of Tantra as a pattern for personal and spiritual growth."--"The Middle Way"
"Following on the heels of "The Wisdom of Imperfection: the Challenge of Individuation in Buddhist Life," Preece (Tibetan Buddhist teacher and transpersonal psychotherapist) offers another accessible, insightful, and engaging interweaving of Buddhist and Jungian perspectives on psychospiritual transformation. . . . Preece delivers a number of perceptive insights on the obstacles encountered when traditional Asian practices are transplanted onto modern Western psychological and cultural soil. Recommended for the general reader."--"University Religious Studies Review"
"Allows readers to overcome common boundaries between Eastern philosophy and Western results-driven psychology, offering chapters based on Buddhist tantric strategies to keep results centered on life experience as well as spiritual purpose. The result is an outstanding melding of two often different philosophies."--"The Midwest Book Review "

His artistry in depicting some of the deities is extremely skillful and very inspiring.
The title however,doesn't show that the book exists as "Alchemical Buddha"
by another publisher.
Such a useful book, but I don't need it twice.
