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.?
