    1. After reading most of the collected works by Jung, this book helped me to grasp the concept of the Archetype and the symbols generated by the archetypes. The concept of the complex is also easy to understand, it was developed early in Jung's career, later he worked mostly on archetypes and its symbols. The second part of the book, dealing mostly with symbols is also a good read.Read this book to understand what a complex is, and then move on to archetypes and symbols.Great reference book!

    2. A jewel of psychological insight by one of Jung's associates. Jolande was thoroughly qualified to provide her interpretation of Jung's work. A must for any serious student of psychology and/or astrology.

    3. I became intellectually challenged by Jung because there was so much in Volume Nine of The Collected Works (two parts: Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious and Aion), the first serious books by him attempted, I either couldn't understand or couldn't accept.

    4. I've studied Jung in my undergraduate work and in the beginning of my PhD program. I have never grasped Jung's concepts as clearly and succinctly as I have in reading this text. Jacobi makes Jung incredibly accessible, not to mention endlessly fascinating. The first part of the book delves into three sections defining/examining/exploring complex, archetype & symbol. The second part of the book gives a 60 page Jungian analysis of a dream an 8 year old girl described in a mere paragraph. Jacob [...]

    5. Wow, I really liked this - the first half was very informative, and quite helpful in understanding the concepts she is expounding on, but appropriately simple, and the second half - which is really a seperate work - is the interpretation of one particularly meaningful dream - in a beautifully composed and deeply touching way - a very good read.

    6. I return to this book often (especially The Complexes part) to help me delve deeper in understanding Jung's work.
