Because of the size and depth of Jung's collected writings, many readers, though interested in his ideas, find themselves intimidated by them and read only overviews of Jungian psychology rather than Jung's own work. This book is organized, therefore, as a guide to Jung's 19-volume Collected Works . It provides an entree into each important concept in Jung's work through a brief explanation followed by a list of graded readings. Related writings by other authors are also recommended so that readers can obtain a fuller and deeper understanding of the contribution of Jungian psychology.
