Joseph Campbell at his best. I have long been a fan of Joseph Campbell and all his work. I enjoyed sitting back and watching this video. I was never able to attend one of his lecture series; however, this DVD gives me the opportunity to feel like I was in his audience. I also love the subject of mythology. I love learning that certain myths have been around for as long as humans have exited. I find Joseph Campbell easy to understand and a master at explaining what has taken him years to learn and master. I also like that I can replay or rewind if I feel I have missed a point of importance. I would recommend this video to anyone interested in mythology or religion. He also does an excellent job of explaining the difference in Eastern and Western thought.
