Great content on alchemy and psychology almost ruined by there being no effort put into improving the poor audio quality of the original recording. Levels are so low one can really only listen in a totally silent environment. Very disappointed.

Would you listen to The Alchemy of Psychology again? Why?
Yes, it's a great resource.
What did you like best about this story?
Easy going, relevant, covered a great deal of material.
What does James Hillman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Easy to appreciate the content of Hillman's writing, but something about the writing style just doesn't resonate so well. It's the cadence of his sentence structure, something about it is off putting... can't put a fine point on it exactly. The audio book on the other hand, which is a recording of a presentation he delivered is great - his style of speaking is accessible, easy going, approachable, relaxed.
I am delighted that Hillman's talks are being released. He was an impressive speaker. These lectures are interesting not only for the fantastic subject matter but the way Hillman's delivers them. He doesn't see to follow too strictly to words pre-written but rather seems to have something like a general plan from which he brings in elements and quotations here and there as and when he conjures them in his remarkable mind. His engagement with his audience is captivating responding to feelings and murmurings in the crowd and diverting or directing his talk based upon them. Highly recommended.
