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.

    "Too abridged"

    Missed the majority of what makes the book special. The reader was slow and painful to listen to. A great book that was not served well by this audio version.

    "Is not the entire book"

    This does not include the entire book. Just a compressed version. Not all the mythes are included. No chapters and is hard to follow.

    "Abbreviated version"
    What would have made Women Who Run with the Wolves better?

    I would like to have known it was more of a summerization than a book. Its missing so much from the book.

    "Really disappointing initial purchase on Audible"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Although it does not say it anywhere, this is not the entire book it is a fraction of it. I am incredibly disappointed.


    Which character – as performed by Clarissa Pinkola Estes – was your favorite?

    Clarissa Pinkola Estes was amazing in reading this story with passion and enthusiasm. It was so

    "You are not getting the whole book, which is big"
    What did you love best about Women Who Run with the Wolves?

    Great story telling, but just too edited. I'm highly disappointed that this was not marked in more places that it was abridged. I did not see this on my iphone's safari browser. I would not have purchased it had I'd known it wasn't the entire book. Please make it it easier to note when a book is abridged.

    "Unforgettable! One of a kind! Amazing!"

    Narrated beautifully by the author. She has created a work so powerful, and unforgettable that 25 yrs after my first listen I am still spellbound. I have read the full book at least 5 times. I have listened to this shorter audio verson at least 10+ times. First at age 23, then at 30, then at 45. Each time I get deeper layers of insight, wisdom and empowerment. Not to mention sheer enjoyment. It enriches my appreciation of being both wild and feminine in their truest sense. It speaks to all women, of all backgrounds, ages, etc (I happen to be African-American). A book (in audio and print) I will always have to reread and/or rehear many, many more times. Thank you so much Dr. Estes. Thanks Audible as well for having it available in your selection.

    "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.
