Warning… Do not read “The Hero with A Thousand Faces” unless you want to completely loose your ability to have thew wool pulled over your eyes by surface level story telling and week literary troupes.
Joseph Campbell spent a life time learning and teaching the story of stories. His understanding of the human mono-myth (or the root structure of all stories) is captured in this seminal collection of his works. If you want to understand how, and why people tell stories this is a great read.
Again, this book should come with a warning label disclosing that after reading it, you will never be able to hear a story, read a book, or watch a movie the same way again.
