Review by

This is not your average self-help book. Estes relys on old stories from her heritege as well as practical advice from her practice as a Jungian analyst to provide women with a self-help book like no other. The legends she disperses throughout the chapters tie in neatly with the topic of each chapter. And chapters can be read as single units.

Changed My Life. Deep reading and well worth it.

Review by

This book was recommended to me by a fellow therapist after a discussion about the positive impact of stories on the psyche. Estes uses mythology from around the world to explore the universal struggles experienced by women. A great self help book without being preachy. Not light reading.

Review by

At the time the book was published, it was probably considered groundbreaking. These ideas have been floating around the public consciousness since then so it doesn't seem as novel. At this stage, I would have preferred a little condensing. I think I'll need to read it again.

Review by

I read this book as part of a psychology of women class I took and thought the book was complete crap. (It's books like this that make people think psychology is not a real science.) If it were possible to rate as negative stars, I would.
