Introductions to the Red Book

Here are links to two great media introductions to the Red Book. The first, a radio clip, makes reference to the second, a video "trailer" about the preparation of the book for publishing after decades in hiding.

From the NPR radio story, the Red Book's editor Sonu Shamdasani offers the following summary of the story and importance of the Red Book:
The overall narrative of the book is how Jung recovers his soul, recovers meaning in his life through enabling the rebirth of the image of God in his soul. In so doing, he created a psychology that created a vehicle for others to regain meaning in theirs.
Yes, all of Jungian psychology as we know it today came from the inner explorations recorded in this tome.
