A great new book out is Growing Up Jung: Coming of Age as the Son of Two Shrinks. It’s from the Globe and Mail columnist Micah Toub, who writes a personal memoir, that’s often funny, sometimes challenging, and deeply personal. As the son of two psychologists, we see the confusions and dysfunctions worked out, worked over, and discussed in this book. Everything from sexual confusion and dysfunction, the dynamic between a parent and a child, a mother and a son, a father and a son, a father and a daughter, as well as the teachings of Jung are illustrated and explained in a way that make this book incredibly engaging. www.micahtoub.com is the website for more. Growing Up Jung is published in Canada by Doubleday, and Norton in the United States. In Vancouver this day, please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Micah Toub; Good morning, Mr. Toub.
