James Hillman presents an alternative, existential viewpoint that who we become as adults is predetermined before our birth, in the same way that the genetic code of a colossal oak rests within that tiny acorn. Hillman's presentation is a pleasure--his tone is engaging; anecdotes are performed with characteristic inflections that place listeners in the moment. We are there, for example, at the pivotal moment when young Ella Fitzgerald suddenly decides to sing, not dance, for a local competition. (Was this the moment she heard her calling?) This audiobook explains how to reconcile the past and present and how to become the grand oak of one's own personal mythology. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 97]
