Publisher's Summary

First published three years ago before the print edition of Women Who Run with the Wolves made publishing history, this original audio edition quickly became an underground best seller. For it's insights into the inner lives of women, it established Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes as one of the most important voices of our time in the fields of Jungian psychology, myth, and women's mysteries.

Drawing from her work as a psychoanalyst and cantadora (keeper of old stories), Dr. Estes uses myths and folktales to illustrate how societies systematically strip away the feminine spirit. Through an exploration into the nature of the wild woman archetype, Dr. Estes helps listeners rediscover and free their own wild nature.

    "Thrilled but disappointed"

    Listening to the abbridged version by Estes' own magnificent voice was bewitching. However I was deeply disappointed when the performance turned out to be a very short summary of the original work. Please specify this for consumers.

    "Never a wasted minute!"

    Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes weaves a yarn like no other. All of her stories are lessons which can be re-listened to and with each listen, new information is gained.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I had hoped it was the entire book not just the first two chapters

    "Book is superb; Audible edition is a ripoff."

    I didn't realize "abridged" meant only two chapters. The book is one of my all-time favorites. This audible edition is a letdown.

    "I thought it was the whole book!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If this was the entire book, I would have given it 5 stars.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first time listening to an audio book, so I had no idea that this was not the entire book. I see now I have to look at the hours. Very disappointed. I thought I could listen to this on my commute. I had to go buy the book to finish it because it was selected for my book club. Not a happy camper at all. Well, what I did listen to, it was very good. Not so good reading it, though. I had to think too much while reading it and go back and forth rereading paragraphs to get the gist of what the author was talking about.

    This Woman Clarissa Pinkola Estes is an amazing woman with an amazing gift of story telling with passion that motivates you to keep listening. When the book is finished you so wish it would keep going. Each of her stories have deep meaning that go right to your bones.

    "A grounding, opening, and releasing experience."

    I love this book but the narration can be difficult to follow... nonetheless, I highly recommend all women listen to remember who they are and what will put the restlessness to sleep.

    "Too short"
    Any additional comments?

    This was far shorter than I expected. It was not clear just how abridged it was. Having read the book many years ago I was looking forward to hearing the depth of the work but it stopped after two chapters. I wouldn't choose to pay this much for such a short version. Very disapointed.

    "Amazingly insightful!!!!"

    An amazing read for both men and women. For women, this book finally makes sense of why our lives are the way they are. For men, it allows men a greater understanding of the innate beauty present in every woman. This is a book that every young person should read or have read to them. It explaines why every person is a unique individual and should be honoured as such.

    Clarissa Pinkola Estes is a beautiful story teller. Every message she shares is done so with eloquence using tales of old brought magnificently into the here and now. I cannot recommend this enough.

    "Not too sure."

    I agree with individual freedom, but to paint marriage as a beautiful cage of rotting death.
    One story describes man as a being who collects the bones of women he has married and killed ultimately.

    I prefer unity and not separation.

    Being wild and free is good, but motherhood and parenting means a natural progression of life, dishes are also a form of creativity, you are creating for your loved ones and home... If you want to twiddle reeds in the garden and be wild when creativity is needed for everyone around you... Then your just a adult child, not a wild female.

    "Too short :/"

    Unfortunately this is too short. I bought this as I have the book but haven't got round to finishing yet. This is a great book but it's such a shame so much has been cut out, it is more like a talk rather than a book and I would recommend the written book along side this.
