Publisher's Summary

UPDATE: In response to listener feedback, this audio edition of The Red Book has now been revised to exclude footnotes in the reading.

An audio edition of the famous Red Book text and essay.

The Red Book, published to wide acclaim in 2009, contains the nucleus of C. G. Jung's later works. It was here that he developed his principal theories of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation that would transform psychotherapy from treatment of the sick into a means for the higher development of the personality.

As Sara Corbett wrote in the New York Times, "The creation of one of modern history's true visionaries, The Red Book is a singular work, outside of categorization. As an inquiry into what it means to be human, it transcends the history of psychoanalysis and underscores Jung's place among revolutionary thinkers like Marx, Orwell and, of course, Freud."

The Red Book: A Reader's Edition features Sonu Shamdasani's introductory essay and the full translation of Jung's vital work in one audiobook. The Red Book is skillfully narrated by Mike Fraser.

Modern Dante

An inward journey taken over a century ago but more relevant today than ever.

This journal lets us walk side by side with Jung as he travels away from his societal bonds inward to internal desert of desolate territories and haunting phantasms. The book detailed beautifully shares with us a very personal connection with Jung;

and this audio book helps in understanding the context of the book and its release so many years after Jung's death.

Fantastic!

Fantastic book and audio version!

So, so pleased that Dr. Jung wrote it, and spent his life exploring how our psyche works! And that his family approved the publication and Sonu Shamdasani and all those that contributed took the time to put this scholarly work together.

As Dr. Jung says - if you are a first time reader/listener of his work you might think he is mad in some parts. But all of our species has this madness but don't publish it.

Just listen to it a couple of times and it will begin to sink in. The introduction on his life and meaning is very helpful.

Dr Jung was on another level.

He articulated ideas that are like smoke. Targeting and solving problems we didn't know exist.

Stunning

I cannot wait to find a hard copy of this in its original language and a good English translation with all of the beautiful art. What an amazing man Carl Jung was. I want to read everything he has written more than once.

A masterpiece with many layers

I loved everything about this work even if it is at times obscure to me. I must find the print version with the illustrations so carefully wrought by Carl Jung.
