A Short History of Myth audiobook cover art

Short & Sweet

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-27-08

As usual, Karen Armstrong delivers the goods as she explains how humankind's beliefs in the gods have changed as his way of life shifted, while the need to believe persists throughout history. I specially liked that although she used to be a Catholic nun she does not moralize or make a case for monotheism vs polytheism.

The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell audiobook cover art

Repetitive, repetitive, repetitive

Overall
3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 12-27-08

Given Campbell's wealth of knowledge I expected this recording to be more insightful but Toms and Campbell kept going back to the same questions and answers (the Black Elk example is used no less than 3 times)so that by the end you get the feeling you've been listening to an old scratched record.
