Description

Plato called it “daimon”, the Romans “genius”, the Christians “guardian angel”; today we use such terms as “heart,” “spirit,” and “soul.” While philosophers and psychologists from Plato to Jung have studied and debated the fundamental essence of our individuality, our modern culture refuses to accept that a unique soul guides each of us from birth, shaping the course of our lives. In this extraordinary best seller, James Hillman presents a brilliant vision of our selves, and an exciting approach to the mystery at the center of every life that asks, “What is it, in my heart, that I must do, be, and have? And why?”

Drawing on the biographies of figures such as Ella Fitzgerald and Mohandas K. Gandhi, Hillman argues that character is fate, that there is more to each individual than can be explained by genetics and environment. The result is a reasoned and powerful road map to understanding our true nature and discovering an eye-opening array of choices - from the way we raise our children to our career paths to our social and personal commitments to achieving excellence in our time.

Not up to the standard of Hillman's usual work

This could have been an essay. Instead, it was a rambling, repetitive piece of something that ignores all science and understanding of cognitive-behavioral research and the impact of trauma to present another forced either/or when it should be explored as a both/and. The acorn theory, or fate, or destiny or character is interesting to add to nature/nurture philosophizing and research, but this acorn theory should have been put in a nutshell, not a tome.

Could not finish

Did not care for “this book”. Get ready to hear the phrase “this book” a LOT. Do not recommend in the slightest.

Great book; Abysmal reading

This is a great book. But I recommend reading it rather than listening to it. It is the worst audible production I have ever experienced. If Hillman had any say about who was chosen to read this book, it makes me question every premise in it. After all, this book is about one of the most beautiful, majestic subjects imaginable: the soul! Yet the reading is mechanical and its editing the worst I have ever listened to. It is as if the reader was not paying any attention to what he was actually reading. He appeared to be incapable of integrating the ideas or simply just did not care. Either way, it was horrible. I was forced to give at least a one for performance. But on a different scale of -5 to 5, I would give this reader a -5. These words deserve better!

robotic reading

couldn't listen any longer, made it to chapter 5 and threw the towel in. The narrator is dry n boring. somewhere along the way I forgot what the book was even about this book goes all over the place.

Great book, so-so audio

The book is fantastic, but the audio with its many post production edits at inconsistent levels is at times quite diestracting.

Oh, what value!

This work brims with syntopic analysis from Plato to Jung. One can feel it swath through both cult and culture all the while keep steady hand fixed on truth. Anything more might be a disservice to the potential reader!!

Distractingly poor narration

Interesting but dry presentation of the “Acorn Theory.” The narration was inconsistent with frequent changes in the tone of voice that did not correspond to the needs of the content. I don’t know how this made it through quality control. (This is my very first negative review after listing to scores of audiobooks)
