Reviews
"Storr has undertaken the formidable task of selecting essential extracts from the huge outpouring of Jung, whose collected works fill 18 volumes. He starts well with a lively and succinct introduction. . . . The book is then neatly compartmentalized into the main stages of Jung's thought, with elucidatory prefaces by Dr Storr to each stage."-- "Economist"
"This is by far the best introduction to the work and thought of Carl Gustav Jung now available [1983]. I wish it were possible to require that every teacher and critic, cleric and cocktail-party magus who takes the name of Jung upon his tongue should have read Anthony Storr's admirable compilation at least once, for untold misunderstanding and unwarranted assumption would be saved thereby. . . . Once again, thanks and praise to Anthony Storr, clinical lecturer in psychiatry in the University of Oxford, for a masterly achievement."---Robertson Davies, The Globe and Mail
"This is the best introductory book for the serious reader. Add it to the autobiography and The Freud/Jung Letters and one has the beginning of a lifetime's serious entertainment."---J. D. O'Hara, Virginia Quarterly Review
"Storr has boiled down Jung's prolific thoughts on man's mental state to this generous and stimulating anthology."-- "Sunday Standard"
"A commentary that is admirably clear and unfailingly level in its tone."-- "The Sunday Times"
