    -----------

    Among his many gifts, Joseph Campbell's most impressive was the unique ability to take a contemporary
    situation, such as the murder and funeral of President John F. Kennedy, and help us understand its impact in the context
    of ancient mythology. Herein lies the power of The Power of Myth, showing how humans are apt to create and live out the
    themes of mythology. Based on a six-part PBS television series hosted by Bill Moyers, this classic is especially
    compelling because of its engaging question-and-answer format, creating an easy, conversational approach to complicated
    and esoteric topics. For example, when discussing the mythology of heroes, Campbell and Moyers smoothly segue from the
    Sumerian sky goddess Inanna to Star Wars' mercenary-turned-hero, Han Solo. Most impressive is Campbell's encyclopedic
    knowledge of myths, demonstrated in his ability to recall the details and archetypes of almost any story, from any point
    and history, and translate it into a lesson for spiritual living in the here and now. --Gail Hudson

    and the Moyers-Campbell dialogues are a welcom guide to recognizing and understanding their meanings." -- Cincinnati
