Although this book was originally published in 2004, it speaks clearly to what is happening in 2018. We are squarely in the midst of "Jump Time." Jean Houston's entertaining story-telling and provocative intensity push the reader out of the comfort zone while introducing the era of "the most radical deconstruction and reconstruction the world has seen." Houston tells us, "We are guests at a wake for a way of being that has been ours for hundreds, even thousands of years. At the same time, we know that we are the ones who must go on."

Jean Houston's book is a powerful look into the future based on real personalities and events and communities that have -for countless years- shaped positive and creative thought and made quantum leaps in offering a more liveable and possibly more peaceful planet. JUMP TIME is a wonderful read about a world that we could embrace and not just imagine. It gives me hope amid the madness transfixing the global community today between wars, genocide, starvation, hate crimes and a myriad of other atrocities within the human community. She has planted the seeds of a new humanity and I find myself wanted very much to join the team.

It's clear that this writer has a lot of enthusiasm for her subject material. However, as I read this book what I was really struck by was how much what she discussed focused on theory, with little application of practical techniques that could incorporate her concepts into a person's life.

I think she has some brilliant ideas, but I would've liked to have seen those concepts followed through on in a manner that went deeper than just a presentation of theory.

Jean Houston has produced a real winner with Jump Time! It is not only informative, but entertaining, with a lot of humor and good stories. The ideas about how changes in the world occur in leaps rather than gradually is very provocative and helpful in our rapidly changing world of today. Great book!

Terrible. Horrible. A non-fiction book that purports to explain why "now" (circa 2004) is a breakthrough time for humanity. I took a lot of notes, mostly so I could sneer and laugh at her ridiculous ideas. The book is filled with jargon and gobbledygook, mystical nonsense, and absolutely no hard facts, no actual opinions that can be agreed with or disagreed with, nothing scientific or falsifiable or even quantifiable. It basically is a 270-page pep talk for those that might be depressed about the human condition. Also finished several weeks ago, so I can't remember much, except that my eyes hurt from rolling so hard for so long. I remember a good deal of anti-white, anti-male insinuations or even outright statements. Plenty of quoting other works by the author -- shameless log-rolling. Lots of capitalized nouns, like "Source," the technique of capitalizing-rather-than-defining is prevalent. Not only does she not explain what "Jump Time" is -- we suspect that she herself does not understand it, because after all it's mystical -- but the entire book has no point except to be a paean to this undefinable thing. It's a worship service, and that's it. Nuff said. Summary: "Yay, humans are great!"

From a knowledge of Archimedes the Evolutionary Lever to Satchel and Shining Morning Face, to Here's Looking at You Kid... Sister Jean runs with philosophers, body morphing, into movies, even to Wok and Roll!

Her introduction to contemporary dilemma is a quotation from Aldous Huxley: "Science is not enough, religion is not enough, art is not enuf, politics and economics are not enuf...nor is love, duty, action, however disinterested, nor sublime is contemplation." She lands upon her friend Francine, who is into body morphing for altered nose, lips, hips, hair, etc. arrives at Grand Central Station to get Jean's help with altering her inner spiritual life! Her full answer includes Gandhi, Francis of Assisi, Deganawidah, Iroquois and Irene the Greek archetype of peace.

Just like she focuses upon metaphors as sunset and sunrise, Jean contrasts sunset as retreat into bad habits; sunrise as the more unpredictabe intense light illumining dark shadows. Then to true Peacemakers as willing to encounter the worst within us! "From time immemorial the We Are realm contains the energies, of arche-typal stories and myths. She names doors of entry into JUMP TIME metaphors drawn from science and spiritual technologies of diff cultures. Sister Jean has boundless energy for "relationship to the We Are realm in an ever changing discovery that previously were thought to be beyond our scope."

Suffice for me is her culmination of Chap Four..."Here's Looking At You Kid." She uses movie texts from Casablanca, ++ songs of the Gershwins, to draw out her self-evolving, deeper eidetic images that few other psychologists dare not touch...Earlier she experienced in her encounter with Fritz Perls!
