Publisher's Summary

Over a span of 12 years (1975 to 1987), New Dimensions Radio host Michael Toms recorded conversations between the late Joseph Campbell (author of The Power of Myth) and himself, during which time they developed a close friendship. In these stimulating conversations, central questions in the search for understanding and knowledge of the spiritual universe in which we live are explored.

    "Wisdom there is - a lot!"

    Joseph Campbell has so much to say about myth and how it can inspire our lives. Very very good. Recommended.

    "Mystical"

    Everyone interested in myth should listen to this man. A little disappointed that he only spoke about the American Indians

    "A Masterpiece"

    I don't write reviews. Except now. This is quite simply the best audio book I've come across. I've listened to many great podcasts and audio books, but this one is special.

    "Meandering wisdom of a famous scholar"

    Was a very pleasurable listen. Joseph Campbell is so interesting. I really enjoyed listening to this, especially when he discusses one's vocation and whether to pursue money or pleasure.

    "great wisdom"

    The gentle and wise words of a master. Listen carefully you might miss many of the truths that pour forth.

    "Authentic Campbell"

    Michael Tom's genuine interest in Campbell's knowledge and teachings of myth makes for fascinating conversations and deep insights. Highly recommended for anybody devoted to their own hero's journey and/or fans of mythology.

    "Refreshingly wise and deep"
    If you could sum up The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell in three words, what would they be?

    It is such a refreshing pleasure to listen to people who actually think, feel and see deeply into mechanisms of our beliefs and souls. It is a very inspiring conversation, which almost makes me feel ashamed of the superficiality of most of our thoughts... It's great to listen to people who try to analyse the way we think and act, without judging others, just with respect and love and incredible knowledge of world mythology and religions.

    "The wise words of Joseph Campbell"

    More than three decades after recording these interviews, Joseph Campbell's words are as relevant now as they were then.

    There is some repetition of ideas throughout but a pleasure to hear Joseph explain them in different ways.

    "Joseph Campbell is amazing!"

    This is my first introduction tp Joseph Campbell and I am thoroughly inspired and can not wait to read/listen to his work!

    This although it is a little repetative because it is segments of discussions is still well worth a listen. :)
