    One question kept surfacing, as I read this. Why is the author spending all this time on a biography if he has such a low opinion of Jung? Well, it was interesting, informative, and just a bit one-sided. Believe half of what you read, and none of what you hear. Overall, left me wanting to read another biography just to get a more rounded picture.

    A huge volume from what I recall. Almost none of the content comes to mind and what does seems of little importance. Jung had influence and still has. Even so, I do not carry his effect.
