  1. :

    The Power of the Dark Side is an incredible exploration of the different dimensions of Evil. Pamela Jaye Smith demonstrates once again that she is one of the world’s experts, not only on multi- cultural mythology but also on the application of the ideas of archetype, symbol, and cognitive science. While she’s written this book with the writer in mind, her exploration of the ideas of evil will be of great value to teachers, therapists, and anyone who deals with people, education, motivation, or persuasion. For writers, it opens up a world of ideas that will help in building more complex antagonists. To have a great hero, you need a great villain. Dark Side delivers far more than you’d expect from one book.
