Not my cup of tea Nov 26, 2007
I belong to a book club of mostly women and this was a recent pick. I was very much looking forward to reading this "classic" . I even purchased a rare hardcover through Alibris assuming I would want a nice copy for my library. While it was obviously well thought out and researched, I felt it could have benefited greatly by an editor. I must strongly disagree with the other reviewer and warn potential readers that it is poorly written. In my opion, Mr. Bly often failed to reach his point. There were times where he seemed to drift in his writing. Many times I would become lost, wondering what he was talking about. I feel it would be helpful to any reader to first become familiar with arch-types as they are used greatly and I was not familiar with these and confused by references. Oddly, all the women appreciated the insights into the men of thier lives, I the lone man of the group wanted a bit more.
