    Another reviewer summed it up this book s cover was misleading I know that authors often have nothing to do with how their books are advertised, and perhaps I should have read the introduction before I bought it or something, but it still isn t fair that I wasted my money on a book chock full of Jungian psychoanalysis when what is advertised and what I expected was a book about the literary and mythological archetype of the wild woman What s worse, the book isn t so much about Jungian psych Another reviewer summed it up this book s cover was misleading I know that authors often have nothing to do with how their books are advertised, and perhaps I should have read the introduction before I bought it or something, but it still isn t fair that I wasted my money on a book chock full of Jungian psychoanalysis when what is advertised and what I expected was a book about the literary and mythological archetype of the wild woman What s worse, the book isn t so much about Jungian psychology in general as it is about the author s experience I just get the feeling that this book was clearly written for the ...
