    One thought on “Carl Jung: Wounded Healer of the Soul”

    1. I had high hopes for this book but two things really bothered me. 1) The book is not particularly well written. I found it rather juvenile in its flow, and I did not feel I learned much about Jung from the text.2) The Kindle format is terrible. It cuts out mid-sentence in every chapter. I don't know how much of the text is missing, but I eventually got frustrated and gave up reading it.
