Have you read the red book yet Apo?
Do you know why they did not allow it to be published until last year? Looks like an interesting read.

I have ordered it. Awaiting delivery - Amazon had stock problems.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Book_(Jung)

I think that Jung didn't want a certain influence that the book would have had on his patients at the time; it was a deeply personal work - then I think that it was just forgotten about.

Glad that it is here now - it is a book that is having a massive influence already.
