Praise

Praise for the Australian edition:

Ego & Soul virtually stands alone within Australia as a genuine attempt by an academic sociologist to deal with the crisis of meaning that is felt everywhere in the wider community, especially in youth culture.” —Australian Book Review

“A film producer said at the celebration of Orson Welles’ jubilee that the guest of honor was a Great Man—a man being great when he does not remind one of anyone else”. By the standards this definition sets Ego and Soul is a Great Book. For me, derivativeness and secondarity are the most ghastly and morbid enemies of both ego and soul. This book manages to castrate and disarm both.” —Zygmunt Bauman

Ego & Soul is written with clarity and is for anyone who wants to explore the reasons behind some of the perplexing cultural problems that face us today. Four–and–a–half stars.” —Bookseller & Publisher

Ego & Soul cleverly examines the problems of being human in the 21st century.” —The Courier Mail
