Few speakers or writers have ever been able to comprehend and communicate complex myths and ideas from the world mythologies, religions, and thinking to make them relevant for living in the modern age.

This book was compiled by the Joseph Campbell Foundation after his passing in 1987. The main sections include:

PART I: MAN AND MYTH

The Necessity of Myths
Myth Through Time
PART II: LIVING MYTH
Society and Symbol
Myth and Self
Personal Myth
PART III: THE HERO'S JOURNEY
The Self as Hero
PART IV: DIALOGUES
Dialogues
It is a rare person who can explain the Indian caste system in a few paragraphs, compare and contrast Freud and Jung, and bring it to the reader with wit and relevance.

The Amazon site will allow you to preview some of the writing to get an idea. You cannot go wrong with any of the Joseph Conrad books. This one is fairly short and accessible.
