Publisher's Summary

Man and His Symbols owes its existence to one of Jung's own dreams. The great psychologist dreamed that his work was understood by a wide public, rather than just by psychiatrists, and therefore he agreed to write and edit this fascinating book. Here, Jung examines the full world of the unconscious, whose language he believed to be the symbols constantly revealed in dreams. 

Convinced that dreams offer practical advice, sent from the unconscious to the conscious self, Jung felt that self-understanding would lead to a full and productive life. Thus, the listener will gain new insights into himself from this thoughtful volume, which also illustrates symbols throughout history. Completed just before his death by Jung and his associates, it is clearly addressed to the general listener.

janky and often jarring audio performance

I'm grateful that this was recently released; I realize there's a ton of effort that goes into creating an audio book. I wanted to like this, but I am returning it half way into the first chapter. I'm sorry, but there's too many audio glitches and jumps. Sometimes the audio is recorded in a room w/ a laptop (slight reverb), othertimes it's clean with a better microphone setup; randomly interrupted by post-edit omissions and rephrasings. Also, I caught the performer mixing up the word "causal" with "casual" and that just broke the experience for me. Again, I'm grateful, but I've since returned this and redeemed it as an audible credit and plan on reading this one via kindle moving forward. Sorry, for the negative review. I normally don't take the time to write these. My suggestion would be to record everything with a consistent microphone setup, in the same soundproofed room with smoother edits or retaking entire phrases at a time, instead of single words. Or at least, attempt to keep the interjections consistent sonically/tonally, etc.

Great Content, Terrible Narration

The frequency of mispronunciation and strange audio edits are so distracting that it is very difficult to stay focused on content of this important book.

worthwhile book super dry voice work.

the voice work is very difficult to listen to, the editing was also very amateurish. the book i recommend but I can't say the same for this audio version. I liken this a group reading in class, except the entire reading is from the worst speaker. endlessly waiting for someone else to more effectively start reading.
