Find your self in myth

“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.” -Joseph Campbell

One of Joseph Campbell’s most popular, most quoted works, A Joseph Campbell Companion: Reflections on the Art of Living is a treasure trove of insight and inspiration, thought-provoking in its depth, poetic in its scope.

Drawn from a month-long workshop at the world-famous Esalen Institute, the Joseph Campbell Companion captures Campbell at his best: wise, funny, intelligent, and inspiring.

40-50% contents overlap with Pathways to Bliss

It is a great book because it is Joseph Campbell. three different narrators take turns reading terse short lines. It is annoying. they should have used one narrator.
40-50% contents overlap with Pathways to Bliss exactly, word for word. They are taken from the same source.
Pathways to Bliss is better for my taste because it is coherent and not made up of hundreds of disjoint Nietzsche-ian aphorisms.
If you bought either one, don't buy the other.

Clarity

I love how Campbell brings together virtually every perspective and uses story and metaphor as evidence.
