If you have not been able read Jung due to the sheer number of works he produced, here is a critical summary for you. Wilson is probably one of the most well-read humans living today. Here he has taken on the challenge of reading Jung and has managed a coherent summary of Jung's life and his writings. The primary virtue of this book is that Wilson has created a starting place for the beginning reader of Jung.

Format: Paperback
I stand corrected. Upon a reread of Wilson's short 1984 book, Jung: Lord of the Underworld, it is an interesting contribution to the literature on Jung, his story, his ideas. Chapter 7 seemed a bit off to me, but it is Wilson's opinion, so be it. Gary Lachman's 2009 book, Jung the Mystic, is something of an updated version or sequel to this.

Earlier review: As much as I respect Colin's other work I must say that his understanding of Jung's work is rather lacking. In this attempted critique Wilson only shows that Jung is well beyond his range of depth. Jung, Jung's psychology and 'Jungian psychology' were always works in progress. Readers could probably gain more from reading other critics, or dare I say, even Jung himself. I've so enjoyed Wilson's wide-ranged syntheses on Atlantis, aliens and other topics, but Jung uncovered depths over a 60-year+ career as a psychiatrist, professor, writer, thinker and mystic that Wilson cannot possibly hope to cover in this short volume. A few interesting insights, but still a disappointment.
