This book offers a good overview of a complex and often esoteric psychological theory. The author did an excellent job extracting key concepts from Jung's voluminous works and creating a very readable book characterized by a friendly writing style with clear explanations and helpful analogies. He begins by defining the structure of the psyche, personality types and archetypes. This provides a firm foundation for presenting Jung's more abstract concepts about the psychic processes that interact as one struggles along the road to self actualization. The strengths of this book more than make up for brief intervals when the author drifts off topic into sociological interpretations that appear to be based upon personal bias.
