Author(s): James Hillman
In this extraordinary bestseller, James Hillman presents a brilliant new vision of our selves not defined by family relationships or the mentality of victimization. Drawing on the biographies of such disparate people as Ella Fitzgerald and Mohandas K. Gandhi, James HIllman argues that character "is" fate and shows how the soul, if given the opportunity, can assert itself even at an early age. 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.
"[A] BRILLIANT, ABSORBING WORK....HILLMAN DARES US TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE EACH MEANT TO BE HERE; THAT WE ARE NEEDED BY THE WORLD AROUND US".
