HE—for women who want to understand men, and for men, to better understand themselves

The myth of Parsifal and his search for the Holy Grail is a timeless allegory that provides powerful insights into the complex nature of the male psyche. In Jungian terms, it describes the stages and challenges faced by every man in his passage from boyhood to manhood—a passage that is essentially the same today as it has been for untold centuries.

Understanding Parsifal's trials in his quest of the Grail—a symbol of all that is feminine—helps us understand why men behave as they do, and how they attempt to relate to the feminine elements in their world. It also helps to explain the difficulties a man may have in reconciling his masculinity with his anima, the unconscious feminine element within his personality.

Newly updated and revised, HE includes a special introduction by the author, and is narrated by nenowned actress Marsha Mason and by Ralph Blum, bestselling author of The Book of Runes.

Seriously? Enough of the fairy tales. What men need is some practical psychology. Not recommended.

This is my first time reading Johnson's works. I give him praise for explaining the the Parsifal story in a meaningful way, and helping us understand the symbolism and message that is to be captured. At first I had a difficult time with Johnson's writing style. It lacked maturity with creatively explaining the Parsifal journey. It felt choppy and rushed. As the writing continued it either got better or I got used to his writing style. I give this book 4 stars for the content and message that was conveyed. I am actually interested in reading Johnson's other books. So he did his job by captivating my interest in who he is and what he has to say. Peace.
