The Interpretation of Dreams is the book that Sigmund Freud considered his most important and that forever changed the way we think about our dreams. Here, Freud explained his discoveries about why we dream, what we dream, and what our dreams mean.
In this groundbreaking work, Freud further demonstrated that it is in the treatment of abnormal mental states that dream analysis is the most valuable. He claimed that dreams not only reveal to us the cryptic mechanisms of phobias, obsessions, and delusions but also are the most potent weapon in the healing of them.
This book is indispensable to anyone interested in dreams and dream analysis.

Love him or hate him, Freud was a pioneer genius. Listening to the audio helps me remember key points I missed while reading this book in college. Great purchase for anyone involved in counseling.
I loved this audiobook from the start. No, it's not easy to follow every detail. But listening to Freud talk about his dreams and what he makes of them is a great way to spend an hour or an evening. Let go of the details and enjoy listening to a great mind at work.
An avid reader, who also loves to listen.
I've always wanted to listen to this book but after listening to it, I'm afraid I may still have to read it as I didn't get much out of it. It did have some interesting parts but for the most part, this Dream book put me to sleep.
I found the book interesting and beautifully written as if Freud was a skillful writer which made it sometimes harder for me to understand since english to me is a second language, but for those whos english is their native language, I think they will enjoy it...alot.
Also the book will make you focus on your dreams and I found that I have too many dreams, more than I thought.
Freud's book was one of the hardest to follow I've ever heard. He moves back and forth in his concepts losing you in the reading. Part 1 and 3 really have more interesting ideas and concepts to hear.
The narration seems a little quick and a lot of concentration. I listen to quite a few audiobooks and this is the fastest read I've heard so far. Definitely not a relaxing experience by any means. Freud's other book " Dreams" is somewhat easier to listen to. Still, waddya going to do? Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
This is my first encounter with audio books at least as an adult. I rented a Star Wars audio book from Mr. Paperback, a chain book store in my area, when I was a child which I could not recount for you. I think I was intrigued by the idea of listening to text. Analyze if you will. This book is simply too much for me to read in between the countless other books I have on the waiting list and the simply dreadful labor I perform daily for the largest retailer in the world, guess who. I find the readers voice nice, as the British have a way with good narrative both on paper and in voice. I have not yet listened to the whole thing because I desire the content to stick. This book is like a friendly piece of scientific research that can at times miss my memory, so I like to listen to it more than once. If you plan on having a profession in the world of the social sciences (I know that is broad, but true), have an interest in psychology and/or psychoanalysis, or simply wish to peer into the masked world of the “dream picture.”
No. It blows
The extensive passages in French and Latin.
Well, he reads Latin and French like nobody's business.
Probably not by the author, since he's busy being dead.
Back to crotch novels for me.
