Abstract:

Welcome to the world of Grimm's fairy tales, where Cinderella has no fairy godmother, frogs never get kissed, and strange things happen that were edited out of your childhood nursery book. We'll discover the difference between what the Grimm brothers' tales actually say and what we think they ought to have said, and in the process we'll find real, vital insights into how we could live more happily, understand our need for personal growth, and find our significant other. This will bring us into a richer, deeper world of self-exploration, and will show us the true healing nature of these beloved tales. ..."--Back cover.
