The Hero with 1,000 Faces by Joseph Campbell

Interesting. Dense, but interesting. Have to read some passages 2, 3 times and still not always sure I get it.

Gives one a new way to look at things, all the myths floating on the deep river of subconscious we've become so detached from in modern technological life.

Ritual, the real connection to these depths, 's been lost, and so we act on motivations we don't understand, often to the detriment of us all.
