Summary

First published three years ago before the print edition of Women Who Run with the Wolves made publishing history, this original audio edition quickly became an underground best seller. For it's insights into the inner lives of women, it established Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes as one of the most important voices of our time in the fields of Jungian psychology, myth, and women's mysteries. Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora (keeper of old stories), Dr. Estes uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estes helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.

Too short

Any additional comments?

This was far shorter than I expected. It was not clear just how abridged it was. Having read the book many years ago I was looking forward to hearing the depth of the work but it stopped after two chapters. I wouldn't choose to pay this much for such a short version. Very disapointed.

Guess I know what "Abridged" means now....

Would you listen to Women Who Run with the Wolves again? Why?

Only if I could get the "entire" book on audio, didn't realize this wasn't the whole book

What did you like best about this story?

Love her storytelling!

What about Clarissa Pinkola Estes’s performance did you like?

The way she tells stories

Any additional comments?

I'm REALLY disappointed that this was so short - is there another way to get the entire book on audio?

Book is superb; Audible edition is a ripoff.

I didn't realize "abridged" meant only two chapters. The book is one of my all-time favorites. This audible edition is a letdown.
