Carl Jung, the Swiss father of the conscious and unconscious mind, developed extensive and complicated theories of mental illness. He and rival Sigmund Freud pursued parallel efforts in psychoanalysis. Jung's extensive writings throughout a long professional life started an important reformation in our approach to mental function and malfunction. This book's vocabulary would challenge a Ph.D., but Tim Pigott-Smith's mellow voice achieves perfect pronunciation. By giving welcome expression to the dry definitions, his tempered enthusiasm and varying pace add color to a black-and-white text. In fact, the reader's feeling adds so much vitality to the production that he brings what the message lacked to make it palatable. J.A.H. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
