Book Overview

UPDATED, WITH NEW MATERIAL BY THE AUTHORWOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES isn't just another book. It is a gift of profound insight, wisdom, and love. An oracle from one who knows.--Alice WalkerWithin every woman there lives a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. She is the Wild Woman, who represents the instinctual nature of women. But she is an endangered species. In WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES, Dr. Estes unfolds rich intercultural myths, fairy tales, and stories, many from her own family, in order to help women reconnect with the fierce, healthy, visionary attributes of this instinctual nature. Through the stories and commentaries in this remarkable book, we retrieve, examine, love, and understand the Wild Woman and hold her against our deep psyches as one who is both magic and medicine. Dr. Estes has created a new lexicon for describing the female psyche. Fertile and life-giving, it is a psychology of women in the truest sense, a knowing of the soul.This volume reminds us that we are nature for all our sophistication, that we are still wild, and the recovery of that vitality will itself set us right in the world.--Thomas Moore Author of Care of the SoulI am grateful to WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES and to Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes. The work shows the reader how glorious it is to be daring, to be caring, and to be women. Read More chevron_right

   Great for traveling
Women Who Run With The Wolves is a book I have been reading for a long time. It's one of those books that you pick up and read a lot so you can remember the lessons. The book had a big impact on me. Working full time and going back to school has reduced my pleasure reading time to zero minutes per month. I have a CD in my car that I listen to while driving. Before I know it, my drive is half over because I get sucked into the stories. The author breaks down each story and applies it to women today. It's fascinating and an eye-opener. I give this book to friends who will benefit from it. Read it. You'll love it.
   One of my favorite books.
A gift for a family member is what this is. I think she will like this book. Knowledge is passed on to the next generation.
   A Great Follow-up Read to Codependent No More!
This book has helped me heal after Codependency No More. It is a good read. The author finished it for all of us.
   Bad binding great book
The book is amazing. The pages are falling apart. I can't keep it together. The binding is terrible. How can you continue to read with the integrity of the book compromised?
   Painful to read
Couldn't even finish it. It seemed like a book of cliches and 2 cent feminism slogans. I know this is harsh, but I have not been disappointed in a book in a long time.
   WOW! All I can say is, "WOW!"
This is a great spiritual read. You have to be ready to read the stories. It has made me excited to be a woman and I feel more confident knowing what I know. It answered questions relating to personal relationships. I will be sharing with all my female friends.
   Mostly about motherhood
I was expecting something different from this book. I'll give it to someone else that can use it more. All the insight was about being a mother. I don't think it's relevant for child-free women.
   Interesting, but...
I like the idea of the book. I've heard a lot about the book and a lot of people in the groups I'm in think it's great. I bought it without reading it first. A big mistake. I should have checked it out from the library. I am an intelligent person, I have a bachelor's degree, and I have completed research at the graduate level beyond my years because that's where my reading and writing skills are. The author's writing is difficult to follow because a lot of unnecessary words are added in, some of which don't add any meaning to what she is trying to say. Just no. If you're curious, check it out from the library.
   Apllies stories to real life - teach this in school!
One of the best books I have read. It should be taught in school. Too bad school is filled with lies and politics. The book is a big deal. I love fairy tales and being able to break them down and understand the depth is amazing. I find solace in books, stories and music, we have lost the art of story telling. You will not regret purchasing this book. I will read this book for the rest of my life.
   Gave up.
Couldn't get through the first chapter. I am not sure if I have lost my attention span or gotten dumber over the years, but the writing is terrible. I felt like I was trying to read the Bible in a way that was similar to Alice in Wonderland. There are a lot of words and sentences. Pass.
