Reviewer: Kathryn Harrison, (New York Times Book Review)

"The creation of one of modern history's true visionaries, THE RED BOOK is a singular work, outside of categorization. As an inquiry into what it means to be human, it transcends the history of psychoanalysis and underscores Jung's place among revolutionary thinkers like Marx, Orwell and, of course, Freud. the dedication--the love--with which it was assembled makes THE REED BOOK as beautiful and otherworldly as a medieval book of hours."

Reviewer: Karen Michel, (National Public Radio)

"[THE RED BOOK] is 16 years of the psychoanalyst's dive into the unconscious mind, a challenge to what he considered Sigmund Freud's...isolated world view. Far from a simple narrative, THE RED BOOK is Jung's voyage of discovery into his deepest self."

Reviewer: Michael Dirda, (Washington Post)

"[A] remarkable visionary text....To the modern reader, the result recalls an allegorical-mythological amalgam of Nietzsche's ALSO SPRACH ZARTHUSTRA, Blake's illuminated poems, Renaissance Neoplatonic dialogue, Eastern scripture, Dante's INFERNO, Yeats's A VISION and even the biblical book of Revelation....With a rich crimson dust jacket, thick cream-colored paper and calligraphied pages, this huge tome is the size of a lectern Bible and looks like the kind of spell book a wizard might consult."
