    "Good material"

    This is not easy listening but well worth the effort. I found myself taking a break to lighter material and then coming back to it.

    Story
    "a good introductory collection"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who's seeking a basic familiarity with what Jung was going after. While some basic familiarity with Freud and Addler before hand would be helpful, he puts his references in enough context that they're not required, and these lectures can and do stand on their own.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In the first few lectures, Jung focuses primarily on the therapeutic process. Over time, we begin to see just how deep his theory goes, and that his idea of "therapy" is nothing less than the completion of man as himself. I found this progression to be incredibly easy to follow and to show how a clinical psychologist can make this move into the philosophical.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Prince’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've not heard any of Prince's other performances. I found him to be a little monotone (ala Ben Stein) and some of the accents weren't where I would have thought to put them, but his pronunciation was clean, his delivery crisp, and despite the somewhat academic tone, I would certainly be willing to listen to other texts he's narrated.

    Story
    "Brilliant treatise on the development of the mind"
    What made the experience of listening to Modern Man in Search of a Soul the most enjoyable?

    Im fascinated by classic literature and great philosophic works. I did not know what to expect, having no education on Jungian philosophy and perspective on psychoanalysis, but this is an amazing work. His deconstruction of dream analysis and development of social taboos is really worth listening to, as well as reading. I'm adding this book to my library.

    The reader is clear and expresses the material extremely well. I'm going to look for more he's narrated.


    What other book might you compare Modern Man in Search of a Soul to and why?

    Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance -it's deconstructive point of view and the ease of accessibility of the topics.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible is a terrific service for hungry readers without much free time.

    Story
    "As Useful Today as it was in 1933"
    Where does Modern Man in Search of a Soul rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my favorites. Jung is a true mystic and scientist. His words are as relevant today as they were 80 years ago. This is a must for anyone interested in the state of Modern Man (and I absolutely mean everyone who is interested in TODAY)


    What other book might you compare Modern Man in Search of a Soul to and why?

    I would suggest reading James Hillman a man of true insight.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Prince’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I suggest that this book is worth listening to at least twice as it is so full of wisdom.

    "Great, insightful work.."

    For those with little knowledge of Jung, I would recommend downloading the "A Very Short Introduction to Jung" by Anthony Stevens prior to downloading this book as this should provide a sufficient background before listening to this book.

    This book is based upon a collection of Jung's Lectures and I found it utterly fascinating. My only gripe would be the narrators voice which was very American (sorry!!) and I found it distracted me when I can came to re-listen to the book. However I would still recommend this book.
