This book evolved out of the author's desire to pinpoint key passages in Jung's writings that have nourished him for many years. It provides readers new to analytical psychology with the main ingredients of Jung's work and shows how they might flavor a life in search of meaning. Those already familiar with Jung's ideas will savor again the continuing relevance of his holistic approach to psychological issues.
Each chapter is headed by an appetizer, which is then fleshed out by the author's commentary - an elucidation or experiential interpretation, sometimes both - meant to stimulate the reader to ruminate on the unconscious factors that influence us all. Those seeking a more robust meal will be amply rewarded by following up the references. -from the publisher
