Publisher's Summary

Carl Jung was one of the 20th century’s most significant psychological theorists. He developed concepts we use every day - introverts and extroverts chief among them. Mark Vernon’s eight-part book explores some of Jung’s key ideas and also looks at his relationship with the other giant of the mind - Sigmund Freud.

The How to Believe series of books explores the teachings, philosophies, and beliefs of major thinkers and religious texts. In a short, easy-to-access format, leading writers present new understandings of these perennially important ideas.

Very Eye Opening Read For Struggling Introverts

I loved this book and plan to listen to it again.
It is worth every penny and more if you ask me. It is for the beginner to Carl Jung’s work. The narrator kept me engaged the entire time and I did not want to stop listening.
If introverts are having a hard time opening up to the idea of being a part of the whole you should listen to this. Great listen thank you.

Such a deep thinker

This book is not long. But it is full of valuable information about Jung, his conceptual knowledge, and how he came about understanding the human psyche. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and will listen to it several times!

Good Introduction to Jung

Any additional comments?

This is my first intro to him, so I have nothing to compare it to, but it does leave me wanting to read more about him. If you're looking for a quick, inexpensive intro., it's worth it.

Not by Carl G Jung, but still good book.

audible. I do not want to leave an optional review, then be forced to do it anyway. that's idiotic and broken. that's a big bug that should be addressed, FYI.

Fantastic introduction to Jung

An excellent introduction to the brilliant Carl Jung. The short book has a bit of his biography, his relationship with Freud, the current relevance of his ideas and his views on religion. I think the short book is just perfect to induce some thought memes and gets you do some serious thinking.
