"Readers . . . who believe that medieval and early modern alchemy was only a misguided effort to transform base metals into gold, or at best a crude preparation for scientific chemistry, will experience a great and probably bewildering surprise."--Thought
From the Back Cover
In this present study of alchemy the author has taken a particular example of symbol-formation, extending in all over some seventeen centuries, and have subjected it to intensive examination, linking it at the same time with an actual series of dreams recorded by a modern European not under his direct supervision and having no knowledge of what the symbols appearing in the dreams might mean.

1st Edit: Just from my reading, I will state this bold opinion: This book is probably best read backwards. In other words, instead of reading sequentially Part 1 -> Part 2 -> Part 3, do Part 3 -> Part 2 -> Part 1. This way you understand where Jung is getting his ideas from, and you may be able to form your own opinion of the dream symbols as you go.
On the other hand, I do highly recommend the print version, which I also own. I've been studying the work of Dr. Jung since 1987, and this work contains many new and useful insights into his thinking about psychology. This is not the place to start with a study of Dr. Jung's work, which is highly complex, very broad, and very deep into the study of the psyche, but it is an important piece of the overall oeuvre.
