Mac Guilla Uain, October 18, 2010 (view all comments by Mac Guilla Uain)
This is the most profound book that I've ever read. If I read at 20 yo, I would not have understood it. Now, at mid-life, it makes total sense. Diane Osbon had foresight to capture Joseph Campbell's lectures from month-long workshop at Esalen Institute in 1983. Parts of Campbell's writings are added. Each brief chapter is insightful and can be read again and again. Quotable quotes abound. The book explains religions. It inspires. More than any other book by Campbell and Jung, it explains and encourages why we should live the life that's waiting for each of us.

Vi Blanchard, January 31, 2007 (view all comments by Vi Blanchard)
First of all, the publisher's comments are for the wrong book! This intimate collection of conversations with Joseph Campbell is the kind of book you keep beside your bed and return to again and again. With thoughts on everything from the primal dance between hunter and hunted to the transcendent nature of passionate love, this is a book to keep forever and give away too. It's The Bible for a reader whose spirit looks beyond space, time, religion and ego to something as far away and enigmatic as the beating of his own heart.
