From Library Journal:

Hillman, a Jungian instructor and writer, challenges listeners to review their concepts of natural beauty. He looks at our ideas of beauty and how we identify what is lovely (usually waterfalls, mountains, and unspoiled areas, for instance). A confident, assertive speaker, he has a mostly pleasant voice. However, since the best recordings require a sense of intimacy with the listener, as most folks listen in their cars or homes, Hillman's matter-of-fact delivery falls a bit short. He simply says what he has to and expects the listener to keep pace with his complex theories. The second cassette contains a question-and-answer session with his audience. Occasionally, Hillman repeats a question, but generally he does not, and some listeners may feel as if they're listening to one half of a phone conversation. Overall, his ideas are interesting but difficult to follow given the setting in which the recording was made. Recommended only for libraries with exhaustive philosophy and natural history collections.?Carolyn Alexander, Brigadoon Lib., Salinas, Cal.
