Summary

Carl Jung was one of the 20th century’s most significant psychological theorists. He developed concepts we use every day - introverts and extroverts chief among them. Mark Vernon’s eight-part book explores some of Jung’s key ideas and also looks at his relationship with the other giant of the mind - Sigmund Freud.

The How to Believe series of books explores the teachings, philosophies, and beliefs of major thinkers and religious texts. In a short, easy-to-access format, leading writers present new understandings of these perennially important ideas.

Fantastic introduction to Jung

An excellent introduction to the brilliant Carl Jung. The short book has a bit of his biography, his relationship with Freud, the current relevance of his ideas and his views on religion. I think the short book is just perfect to induce some thought memes and gets you do some serious thinking.

Very Eye Opening Read For Struggling Introverts

I loved this book and plan to listen to it again.
It is worth every penny and more if you ask me. It is for the beginner to Carl Jung’s work. The narrator kept me engaged the entire time and I did not want to stop listening.
If introverts are having a hard time opening up to the idea of being a part of the whole you should listen to this. Great listen thank you.

Such a deep thinker

This book is not long. But it is full of valuable information about Jung, his conceptual knowledge, and how he came about understanding the human psyche. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and will listen to it several times!

Good Introduction to Jung

Any additional comments?

This is my first intro to him, so I have nothing to compare it to, but it does leave me wanting to read more about him. If you're looking for a quick, inexpensive intro., it's worth it.

pleasant short listen

The narrator is clear and has a good voice. For people that are interested in knowing more about Carl Jung this is a quick intro to him and his work. This may provide a good direction to wander off into the vast knowledge of Jung's work.
