I m not an expert on Jung, but I ve read some opinions of readers who feel that Maggie Hyde focuses too much on Jung s mystic side Can t say if it s true or not, but for someone like me who has long been almost a scientific rationalist, the views expressed in this book are fascinating and challenging I m not convinced, but this little, nicely illustrated introduction to Jung made me think outside of the box A decent read you can read it in a day or two Well worth reading again, also I ve got to say this one may not work very well for people who have less or no knowledge about Jung and his works However with the graphic illustrations, the book attempts to portray his life and overall radical, spooky or whatever you want to call them ideas, theories and field researches in a very brief way I ve recently read his lectures given at Tavistock Clinic, London 1935 as an introduction to the notions of analytical psychology which helped me understand better with the depictions I ve got to say this one may not work very well for people who have less or no knowledge about Jung and his works However with the graphic illustrations, the book attempts to portray his life and overall radical, spooky or whatever you want to call them ideas, theories and field researches in a very brief way I ve recently read his lectures given at Tavistock Clinic, London 1935 as an introduction to the notions of analytical psychology which helped me understand better with the depictions here As much as I find the work useful, I m not sure it d have been fruitful if I directly headed here So yeah, for a beginner if you ask me, grab a good book of his, understand his basic ideas in his own words Either Tavistock Lectures or Memories, Dreams, Reflections would help and get back here to grasp the overall adventures of his during childhood, with domains like Alchemy, Astrology and others because it would avoid give the readers a sense of oversimplification and triviality confused.comI was expecting a kind of Jung for beginners but this was not it For me it wasn t fluid, it seemed to jump from topic to topic and the comic book style didn t help either It left me confused and feeling like I have to start again.It touches on many elements, but there was too much jargon. The artwork is nice, and it explains a lot of Jung s theories, and now I know Jung mixed a lot of spiritualism stuff into his theories and the man is in factlike shaman than a scientist LOL I would say, this is a great overview of C.G Jung s life and ideas psychology and philosophy however this will not be the best choice of book if you are a reader new to Jung s work C.G Jung is the founding father of analytic psychology analysis of the human mind, psyche and the unconscious, as well as the conscious components of the mind advancing the idea of introvert and extrovert personalities, archetypes and the power of the unconscious This is all very interesting but a problem of J I would say, this is a great overview of C.G Jung s life and ideas psychology and philosophy however this will not be the best choice of book if you are a reader new to Jung s work C.G Jung is the founding father of analytic psychology analysis of the human mind, psyche and the unconscious, as well as the conscious components of the mind advancing the idea of introvert and extrovert personalities, archetypes and the power of the unconscious This is all very interesting but a problem of Jung s personal writings is that they are very difficult to understand probably the reason why there are lesser Jungian therapists The brevity of this book does not make it less confusing In fact I think, some sections of this book decreased the clarity of his ideas If you are planning to read this and if you are a beginner to Jung , better to do some extra readings in advance Otherwise his theories may appear un scientific If that happens, remember Jung was a Neo Freudian He was one of the first to openly challenge the efficacy of Sigmund Freud s theories and disapproved some and then went to expand on Freud s theories of psychoanalysis before beginning to do his own thing Loved the illustrations In the beginning, this book comes across as a bit juvenile, but don t let that turn you away As I read this work I came to the conclusion that this guide is best for those readers that are completely unfamiliar with Jung It s a great book for high school or college age adults that are just beginning to become acquainted with basic psychology and its founders It does a good job of providing an overview of Jung and the development and evolution of several of his theories, as well as highlights In the beginning, this book comes across as a bit juvenile, but don t let that turn you away As I read this work I came to the conclusion that this guide is best for those readers that are completely unfamiliar with Jung It s a great book for high school or college age adults that are just beginning to become acquainted with basic psychology and its founders It does a good job of providing an overview of Jung and the development and evolution of several of his theories, as well as highlights those people and events that influenced the various paths he took in his research at different stages of his life So, it is good for what it is, a basic, brief introduction to the man and his contributions to psychology It is not meant to be an exhaustive list, or detailed examination of his various beliefs, practices and discoveries That would be impossible for any book given the length and richness of his life and career If you ve not read anything about Jung and are curious, this is a great book for you If you are a well read scholar and student of psychology, you probably won t learn anything new, but you may still find some entertainment, and possibly further enlightenment, from the illustrations used throughout the book As someone who knew almost nothing about Jung, the book was really hard to understand and confusing to me After reading few wiki articles and documentary about Jung, the book made sense But as the introduction to Jung, the book is as confusing as Jung himself. A good intro, but with too much mysticism and spiritism. Read for class Jung was one weird dude. i don t know if jung was insane or if he was a genius like we know the memes about the occult and alchemy but boy will you be surprised when you read this one i think i m gonna start with his book modern man in search of a soul intrigued fuck yeah
