From Publishers Weekly

In today's marketplace, books on or about spiritual therapies of all kinds are getting to be as common and, to many, as irresistible as potato chips. This succinct, gorgeously illustrated portrait of Carl Jung stands out, however, as a reminder of the profundity and singularity of Jung's achievement. Irish-born, Australian transplant Dunne (People Under the Skin, etc.) captures Jung's immense personal power and intuition, attributing it (as Jung did) to his "archaic nature," his rootedness to the earth and to the primal layers of the unconscious. Deftly interweaving letters and commentary with an extraordinary array of 150 ancient and contemporary images, including three of Jung's paintings from his private journal, the unpublished "Red Book," Dunne helps readers grasp Jung's insight that the divine contains both light and dark, and thatDas a 79-year-old Jung wroteD"A 'complete' life does not consist in a theoretical completeness, but in the fact that one accepts, without reservation, the particular fatal tissue in which one finds oneself embedded." In her introduction, psychologist Jean Houston affirms that this great modern explorer of inner life uncovered "the mythic foundations" of our individual lives and showed how the archetypal code of myth is meant to help humans "advance along an evolutionary path that carries us nearer to the spiritual source." This clear, luminous volume shows that Jung himself evolved. By the end of his life, he was not just a psychologist nor even a visionary artist but an alchemist who understood that what is highest and what is deepest in us are inextricably tethered. 50 color and 100 b&w illustrations.

This is the Jung book to have at hand, whether one is a 'Jungian', a seeker after individuation, or an artist. Ms. Dunn has brought us the humanity of Dr. Carl Jung, bringing us into his life and making his work accessible. It is richly illustrated. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

With 150 color and B&W illustrations, including some never before seen paintings from Jung's "Red Book," this biography is extremely reader-friendly and gorgeous. It's written in succinct chapters, and the artwork is stuff I'd like to frame. It's available in hardcover and softcover. Jung LIVES in this book as a human being struggling to become who he is meant to be at the deepest level...just like us.

I just finished reading Claire Dunne's portrait of Carl Jung and wanted to share what a powerful and inspiring work this is. Ms. Dunne did a wonderful job of telling the story of Jung's evolving and awakening soul as he lived his life fully as a real individual with great gifts and real shortcomings. The book really reflects both the real earthiness of Jung "the peasant" and the highest and deepest explorations of Jung the genius and truthseeker. More than anything else, it seems to me, that you cannot be in the presence of Carl Jung (either in person or through the skillful help of this author) without feeling, as the poet Helena Henderson is quoted in the book, "Above all I remember someone who, by his every word and action, gave one the feeling that life is a good thing--something even more precious to me than anything he put on paper." (p. 109) The book has really blessed me, and it will be one I turn to again and again. I hope others enjoy it as much as I have.

This wonderfully illustrated, spiritual biography of one of psychology's most original thinkers will be welcomed with enthusiasm by Jungian scholars and students. This penetrating examination of the man and his ideas which helped revolutionize psychology and our understanding of the mind is multidimensional and highly recommended.

In my youth I read Jung's autobiography (Memory, Dreams and Reflections) and it was pivotal. This biography is a great follow up, with a selection of writings by Jung connected with a chronological narrative about him by Dunne combined with an interesting and beautiful assortment of art - both Jung's and a wide range of relevant ancient and modern material, as well as a generous selection of photos of him. It all creates a rich and evocative glimpse of the man, his vision and impact. For anyone interested in Jung I'd recommend starting with his autobiography, but then to not miss this.

"The main interest of my work is not concerned with the treatment of neurosis but rather with the approach to the numinous....which is the real therapy." (pg. 3)

Claire Dunne has produced what many of us will consider the definitive biography of the great Carl Jung. Yes, we all studied Jungian thought in college and many books have been written about the influence of Carl Jung on our psyches and our world vision, but few take us through this important man’s life and contributions accompanied by art on every page that makes Jung’s though lines visual. Paintings by diverse artists, famous and legendary and unknown and anonymous, allow a different entry in to the wonders of Jung’s contributions.

Why no one has thought of this technique of communication before now seems strange, so powerful is the combination of Claire’s writing coupled with the painting and woodblocks and drawings and symbols she has elected to illustrate her points. This is a book to treasure and one to offer young students curious about the development of psychology and worldview in the early years of their education. Simply put, this book is an award worthy volume that deserves a very large audience who are curious about the impact of one of the greatest minds of our culture. Highly Recommended on every level. Grady Harp, November 15
