5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent self-help, worth reading and re-reading., March 10, 2002
This review is from: King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine (Paperback)
I first read this book when it appeared in the early '90s, when the Men's Movement was everywhere (how long ago that seems). I have come back to the book many, many times for guidance and insight, finding relevance in different portions as I have aged, changed jobs, and faced new challenges. There is a reason why this book remains in print: it's an intelligent, clear, and well-grounded examination of the primary facets of men's selves and how men can use this understanding to improve their lives. The authors discuss each of the title's four archetypes in turn, explaining both the positive and negative aspects of each one, and how each can interact with the others. A particular strength is the authors' ability to describe each archetype in a vivid, three-dimensional (yet concise) way that enables you to *see* the archetype at work in yourself and others. I would recommend this book especially for readers who may be turned off by self-help works that are either too simplistic or too mystical. And, as other reviewers have pointed out, much of it would appear to be of interest to women as well as men.

Excellent review. I have really enjoyed and continue to benefit from the book. I was wondering if anyone has attempted to put together a set of words, attributes, as a quick pointer to each archetype. That would be very nice and useful.
