Format: Hardcover
This book succeeds in being both a "good read" and an absolute fund of accessible information about Jung's apprentice - Helton Godwin Baynes -, Jung himself, his theories and the history of Jungian analysis. I learnt an enormous amount and enjoyed myself while reading it (whilst on holiday and I didn't miss my usual Patricia Cornwell a bit!). Diana Jansen has written this biography of her father in a way which is at the same time painfully truthful and immensely moving. Helton Baynes was a dashing, popular and heroic figure and this account of his life pulls no punches. I found myself on a rollercoaster of emotions: admiring of his triumphs, angry with his failings, and aware of his place in history and the dilemmas which he faced before his untimely death.
I unreservedly recommend this book, whether or not you are particularly interested in psychoanalysis. It's really beautifully written - the personality of subject and the author positively shine out of the pages.

By Anita Spinella on September 10, 2007
Format: Hardcover
We are all attracted to books for different reasons. My attraction to this book was driven by a central interest in the life and work of CG Jung, extending to his comtemporaries. That Peter Baynes was English and an extravert within this Jungian circle also fascinated me, as it reflects my own psychological attitude.

When I received this book I confess that I immediately went to the chapters specific to Baynes's interaction with Jung, and to that end I was rewarded. It contained lively content, interesting dialogue (via published letters) and many photographs.

What came next was a delightful seduction. Peter Baynes was a fascinating, loveable and dynamic character. I *needed* to read all about him. I started at the .... well..... start. I read it from front cover to back cover, in one sitting. The author - Diana Baynes Jansen - also became a silent character in the story. Her life-long quest was to "get to know the father who has profoundly affected her life and who died when she was only six years old" [back inside cover].

Peter Baynes had an extraordinary life. He was supremely gifted, both physically and intellectually, yet it was (in my view) his heart and empathetic feeling life that makes him extraordinary. The chronicles of his love life are displayed warts and all. His story is replete with relationships - many joyful, many messy and difficult. It is primarily through his prolific letters - that the author skillfully weaves into the text - that Peter becomes alive for us. I agonized with him over difficult decisions, I scolded him occasionally for certain behaviour, but most of all I loved his willingness to analyse himself, to turn the gaze of criticism within. Peter Baynes' inner integrity and honesty drive this book, along with the journey of the author who fulfilled a quest to bring it to us.
