This book offers an in-depth and insightful model of feminine psychology. It is particulary good at explaining anima and animus dynamics and would be a great read for men trying to understand different types of women. It will also serve as an excellent model for a woman doing her own inner work.
I work in the psychology field and I'm very picky about books in this genre. I have absolutely no reservations about giving this book my highest recommendation.
As a man, I find it fascinating and a real education in relating to the "Feminine Mystique"..
A great precursor to studying Jung's theories, prolific works, and wisdom.( A True Sage for modern cultures).
I keep giving the book away and am so glad to find out of print books through Amazon..Thank you!
While she didn't help me decide the nature vs. nurture argument, she did help me understand the many traits that usually run together as a core group of each type she mentioned. I not only read the book a second time, highlighting certain portions of text to share with my friends I felt wanted to understand women, but I wound up buying many used copies to give as gifts. (It was not in print at that time.)
But by understanding the type of women I was with, it allowed me to prosecute my relationships on a healthier, less dramatic level and to take time to discover things at my own rate, yet to have a better understanding of what I was taking in. This allowed me to forgive many poor behaviors and even to help a few women friends to understand themselves a little better.
I'm married ten years now and it's been the most content period of my life thus far. I truly believe this book has something to do with this level of success I've experienced. The book has not only served me, but it has helped me to better serve the women in my life.The book sits on my shelf, where I take it out from time to time to re read a section or two to understand one of the women in my life, not just on a romantic level, but on all levels!, just a little bit better. And as I get older, and in some ways I grow away from my very emotional younger man I once was, it reminds ME to allow a little bit more emotion into my life and my marriage than I'd otherwise be likely to do. This is a marvelous read for men and women both. And it is as prescient today, if not perhaps more so, than it was when it was written all those decades ago. Five stars. No question.
