A great insight to the fundamental ideas of a great man. I' specially loved his optimism and humility. It' s a little bit repetitive but it' s also a way to highlight the importante ideas. Also I was worried about not understanding because i' m not native english, but I had no problems
I enjoyed listening to Joseph explain how myths aren't just entertaining stories , but lessons on how to live and be part of a group in society. I also found it interesting that today we have lost those myths , and no new myths are being told to replace them.
Deeply simple, that's me. My preferences gravitate to stories that offer chances to reflect. However, don't give me a lot of sugar coating.
I love when the writing is read by the author. It just doesn't get any closer real than to have the real person explain and hearing him tell you about the concepts in his own words.
This was a great audiobook and Joseph Campbell was a wonderful person. I only wish I could have been blessed with having known him.
Considering the years I suppose it's a fair recording but compared to today's standards it isn't the best listen but the content makes it all worthwhile. The power of myth is a better start if you haven't listened.

A great introduction to a man with life changing message. Taken from over a half century of study of word religions. concise and clear. Follow your Bliss.
An audible junkie, addicted to all things spiritual, meaningful, enlightening, masculine, additions to my own experiences and journey!
Great intro to Joseph Campbell, a man with an incredible way of pulling everything together in a very complex and deep, yet so simple way ... not sure how, but it makes sense.
I enjoyed this book because Joseph Campbell helps one see the big picture. I had so many realisations while listening to this audio and of particular importance is the fact that one often views mythology in a literal sense and misses the essence of what is being taught or shared.
The sound quality isn't great. Michael Tom's knowledge of mythology made for very interesting interviews however he sounds as if he has a blocked nose and his breathing was quite loud. I found this very distracting when listening to the audio.
