Then, as described by Publishers Weekly, ?the book ranges widely, from Cro-Magnon art to Arthurian legend?as it follows Campbell from his Catholic boyhood and early interest in American Indians to his years in Paris and Munich.? Readers listen in as he meets Jung (who discusses the meaning of the Hindu syllable, ?Om?); hear Campbell quip, ?if marriage isn't a first priority in your life, you're not married?; and learn the genesis of Campbell's trademark, ?follow your bliss.? As Richard Adams wrote, it reveals ?at every turn fresh aspects of his genius, wisdom, and understanding.?
