This book takes Carl Jung's fascinating concept of individuation and brings it right up to date with a modern twist. It reveals the relevance and importance it has in our lives today and gives us an understanding that our lives have a divine significance. Essentially, it is a major adult psychological process which occurs thoughout adult life and as we allow ourselves to individuate we attract change and growth. The book clarifies the many ways in which individuation makes its prescence known in our lives. For example why do so many of us begin to question our lives when 'everything appears to be just right?', yet there is an inner lack of fulfilment. It identifies indicators such as synchronistic occurrences, the relevance of the 7year cycle and explores what happens if we suppress individuation. Illustrated by compelling and amazing examples of those in the public eye who are individuating successfully, this book is also supplemented by visuals and insightful questionnaires to encapsulate the reader. If we are to fulfil our human potential we must individuate!
This brilliant book, a bona fide page turner, is about how to be a woman, a daughter and a Jew, no less than it explores how to be a principled human being. The Bookseller's Sonnets is an extraordinary achievement. (Joan Mellen, Author of A Farewell to Justice: Jim Garrison, JFK's Assassination, and The Case That Should Have Changed History) With her potent combination of poetry and prose, testimony and truth, Rosenthal crafts a story about religious identity and relationships that enables readers on embark on own their journey of self-discovery. I dare you to be able to put this book down! (Sally Srok Friedes, author of The New Jew: An Unexpected Conversion) Andi Rosenthal's 'Booksellers Sonnets' is gripping historical mystery with a twist. We would happily recommend it to anyone who enjoyed Geraldine Brooks's People of the Book or Peter Manseau's Songs for the Butcher's Daughter-to anyone, in fact, who enjoys a good story told well. (Joseph's Bookstore, London) The Bookseller's Sonnets grabbed me from the first few pages. Tying together the Tudor era, the Holocaust and today in one story takes a gifted writer. Simply said - one of my favorite books this year. (The Printed Page)
