From the Author:

The "Why" of Archetypes
Gods in Everyman is a companion volume to Goddesses in Everywoman. Both are the archetypes in us, based on the gods and goddesses in Greek mythology. People are complex, there is a pantheon of these archetypes in each of us. They act from within us, and the more we know of them, and the more conscious we can be about ourselves, the better. Every archetype is a predisposition each contributes to our personality, helping define our strengths, difficulties, and meaning. Families and cultures favor some archetypes over others, which affects success and self-esteem. On a personal level, individuals who find themselves repeatedly attracted to certain types need to know "who" it is in them and in the other person. I hope that people who read both books, will come away with a respectable knowledge of Greek mythology, a working understanding of Jungian archetypal psychology, and on a personal level, with insights into themselves and the significant people in their lives.

From the Back Cover:
