Format: Paperback
This book is an absolute necessity for any lay-person studying Jung. Sharp not only defines terms but cites passages from Jung's collected works and letters to elucidate them. Anyone who has read Jung knows that the reading and comprehension are impossible unless you go slowly, read with a dictionary, look up all references. You are not going to simply pick the stuff up along the way, and Jung does not slow down and re-explain thoughts later on. He expects his readers to keep up with him. Therefore, we need a book like this for constant reference.

HOWEVER, and this is for Mr. Sharp: I held short on giving this book 5 stars because what we really need is for someone to write a lexicon which also includes the Latin and Greek and French and German phrases that Jung scatters throughout his work. You only do a little in this area, so you leave a lot of the painstaking work up to us. I try to translate the best I can, but I really need a COMPLETE reference guide--until I get that, though, this book is indispensible!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book several years ago as I was getting into Jung. I found it then, and now, to be an invaluable reference work. Each entry includes a one sentence line defining the terms, then usually one or two quotes from Jung, and then the author's analysis of the term. Daryl Sharp has done an excellent job of finding the most concise and direct quotes from Jung which explain his terms. He has also included several diagrams which I found very helpful. The index is very thorough as well, and contains all the cross references to the terms in the book. Like I said, I return to this book time and time again and I consider it to be one of the essential books in my own Jung library. I cannot imagine trying to understand Jung without this type of book, and I would highly recommend it especially for newcomers to Jung but also for seasoned pros.

This book is welcome as it contains terms and definitions as given by Jung about his Analytical Psychology. Other authors are also referred to. The book arrived in the set time and in an excellent condition. Thanks.
