Personally, as human grappling with modernity and relationships, this book was quite insightful. This is not a how to book, but rather, it is a paradigm book. By reading one may identify contemporary views of relationships, examine them, and then reconsider one's own paradigm.
Hollis (or Jung) does indicates the search for the magical other begins after the child's conceived ownership of his/her mother is fractured. The child, through adolescence and adulthood, may then search for a magical other to fill the void. Hollis considers this subject and it's implications briefly, leaving room for the reader to draw his/hers own conclusions.
This book takes a startling frank look at why we fail so often in finding "love," in finding our 'soulmate."
Hollis doesn't sugar coat it - but if you can wrap your mind around the truth of his Jungian point of view....then maybe, just maybe, love *is* possible.
His books are slim but dense reads. Mine our highlighted from start to finish. I believe him to be the top male Jungian writer living today. Truly a font of wisdom.
Reading this book CHANGED MY LIFE. It opened the path for me to find a partnership of the depth and soul I had longed for. The work was mine to do - it involved changing my entire thinking about love but the results were worth it.
I have bought multiple copies of this book - so that when a friend comes to me, devastated once again from the failure of a relationship or even marriage - I hand them a copy of The Eden Project and tell them if they are willing to do things differently - this book will help them find the path.

probably great for people who like this kind of stuff.
The book is deceptively thin. One thinks they will breeze through it.Read more
