"This is a volume that will be treasured by the confirmed Jungian or by admirers of beautifully made books or by those with a taste for philosophical allegory." -- Michael Dirda - The Washington Post "For Christmas I'd like Carl Jung's The Red Book." -- Talitha Stevenson, Books of the Year 2013 - The Observer "I was amazed... by the illustrations Carl Gustav Jung made for The Red Book, which is considered the holy grail of the unconscious." -- W Magazine "...for such an arcane work [The Red Book] is generating quite a buzz... publishing The Red Book opens a new era in understanding Jung's work. It is a unique window on the construction of one of the world's most influential psychologies." -- New Scientist "The book is witness to a rare dedication to psychological research, and a prodigious curiosity. More crucially, at a time when the limits of materialism are being tested and found wanting, Jung's confidence in a spiritual dimension to human consciousness must have a renewed appeal. For this, the book deserves attention, especially when established religious models are fading in popularity and the search for a meaningful life seems to have become increasingly urgent and elusive." -- Sally Vickers - The Times
