Reviews

Best-selling author Myss (Anatomy of the Spirit) writes a laundry list of 12 archetypes; the impetus behind the categories is valid-if you can figure out who you are, through encouragement, your positive attributes may become self-actualizing. However, this unfortunate amalgam of modern stereotypes doesn't come close to identifying itself with the concept of archetypes originating from the field's leading thinkers. Myss's "new" archetypes are watered-down versions of previous incarnations, appealing to a trendy sensibility. In addition, each chapter has a "male counterpart," which one may only guess is a nod to Jung's anima/animus, a misunderstanding even Myss senses when she writes that archetypes are "mostly inherently genderless." Is preying on women with low self-esteem an honest way to increase book sales? Verdict Read Joseph Campbell, Carol Pearson, Carl Jung, or your favorite fairy tales and/or myths and be inspired by the magnitude of the archetype's true form. This book is an unnecessary purchase. -Nadine Dalton Speidel, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Parma, OH (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
