The Archetypes of Man

King-Warrior-Magician-Lover-Moore-Robert-9780062506061King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine by Robert L. Moore My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An excellent exploration of the male psyche from a Jungian perspective. If one has done much interior exploration, such as that through the Mankind Project NWTA, some of these archetypes will be (sometimes uncomfortably) familiar.

I was happily surprised by the last chapter, which concisely described ways of utilizing the book's insights, as well as an uplifting invocation of what it means to be a man. In these days in which men are constantly being degraded, it is quite refreshing to be reminded of our immense power and value.

If you are planning to read Iron John, read this first. It makes an excellent prequel.
