Books That Inspire 2001

The Power of Myth
Joseph Campbell

I have never found a book that could weave the myths that have shaped our society of today as beautifully as this one. No one tells the world’s story better than Joseph Campbell. He has touched me deeply in his ability to relate thousands of years of religious myth and history in such a humorously profound way. I was not the same person after reading this book. As I feel with all great books, they have the ability to expand personal awareness, never allowing again the reader to remain as he or she was, and that is what happened to me.
