This book doesn't disappoint at giving us the contributions of Carl Jung to the field of Psychology. Some of the core ideas associated with Jung are found including his thoughts on motivation. Well known for his feud with Freud, Jung presents a fair look at the contributions of Freud and Adler to human motivation. He then goes one step further to give his own personal spin, and presents some of the earlies insights on introversion. He also touches on other topics that will make you go, "I never thought of it that way!." This book is a good place to start for anyone interested in learning the philosphies of Carl Jung!
