Great, insightful work..

For those with little knowledge of Jung, I would recommend downloading the "A Very Short Introduction to Jung" by Anthony Stevens prior to downloading this book as this should provide a sufficient background before listening to this book.

This book is based upon a collection of Jung's Lectures and I found it utterly fascinating. My only gripe would be the narrators voice which was very American (sorry!!) and I found it distracted me when I can came to re-listen to the book. However I would still recommend this book.

Deep, timeless and inspiring

This book will have you turning over it's ideas in your free time. A real eye opener and great introduction to the works of Jung. The American accent was very strong for me as a Brit, but I soon came to love it.

Jung's analysis is so clear and considerate I couldn't help but psycho-analyse myself whilst listening to his theories.

Every sentence of Jung's is a treat, laden with such insight and meaning. You will find yourself rewinding and rewinding this audio book to gain a deeper understanding of Jung's mind.
