This is the book many have been waiting for—a sequel (of sorts) to the author’s acclaimed Live Your Nonsense (2010). Some advance reviews:
Trampled to Death by Geese is a rare anomaly in the world of Jungian writing. There are some racy, picaresque scenes, as befits the author’s style, but on the whole it is a delicate balancing act between narcissistic self-indulgence and serious explications of Jung’s ideas, with sheer fun along the way. This is no small feat, comparable to surviving Niagara Falls in a barrel.
Trampled to Death by Geese is an audacious and clever meld of Logos and Eros. Highly recommended to those who can stand the tension.
Trampled is your best book ever, deftly integrating the opposites.

Here is an artful dodger able to put complex ideas into words and real-life
situations that laymen can understand. It is a rare ability.
—Robertson Davies, author of Fifth Business and The Manticore.
Jungiana simply doesn’t get more readable than this little gem.
The writing is absolutely superb. It rolls along like the waves of the sea—constant, steady and rhythmic; fresh, salty and invigorating.
