Publisher's Summary

More than a mere overview, the audiobook offers listeners a strong grounding in the basic principles of Jung's analytical psychology in addition to illuminating insights.

"Probably the best one-volume English language summary of Jung's thought." (Choice)

"Himself a widely regarded analyst, Stein presents Jung's major theoretical contributions in language as uncomplicated as the subject allows...Aimed at the general reader but sufficiently academic for the specialist, this is an excellent basic book on the subject." (Booklist)

"Writing for the general reader, Stein provides an outline of Jung's basic concepts that is clearly written and indicates some of the distinctions between Jung's thinking and Freud's." (Publishers Weekly)

punishing narration

The content and organization of the book was terrific. The narrator read the book as though he were in a race adding inflections in unnatural places. His midwestern accent was borderline comical. The reading made the book more difficult to comprehend by adding an additional and unnecessary barrier. The material was interesting enough that it pushed me to listen to some chapters more than once in spite of the painful narration.

Excellent book; barely tolerable narration

What did you like best about Jung's Map of the Soul? What did you like least?

The work is an excellent introduction to Jung's theory. It is extraordinarily deep and well written. The problem is the narrator doesn't sound like he understands the book. His inflections are all wrong and he doesn't pause when he should. Such a great book deserves a better narrator.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Larry Earnhart?

C.M. Carlson

Great Content, Amateurishly Narrated

Would you consider the audio edition of Jung's Map of the Soul to be better than the print version?

N/A

Any additional comments?

The reading of this volume is pretty hard to accept. It's read rapidly and without intonation. Perhaps the choice of Larry Earnhart was to make the text somehow more accessible, but it's instead rather off-putting and sounds extremely amateurish. The content is excellent so I forced myself to accept Larry as narrator, but it wasn't easy.

Great Book - Awful Narration

The narrator is racing through the text . Way too fast. Annoying, hard to listen to. Also the narrator accents and adds emotion inappropriately. I bought the paperback so I will read the book instead of listening. I like the author and the book, but this narration is intolerable.

Narrator is truly awful

This narrator does a terrible injustice to this excellent book. Although I stayed with it through the end, it was only due to the subject matter... I've listened to many, many audiobooks and this is the worst narrator I've heard.

Basic Jung Textbook

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I work in the field and this was pretty basic stuff. It would be good for someone who is unfamiliar with the work.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Why the hurry??

Fantastic insights into Jung's theories, however the narrator was in such a rush to get through the material that it was uncomfortable to listen to! Please take a breath and enjoy the material that you present.
