    4.5 out of 5 stars 45

This series of 28 lectures was given by Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), the founder of psychoanalysis, during the First World War and first published in English in 1920. The purpose of this general introduction was to present his work and ideas - as they had matured at that point - to a general public; and even though there was to be considerable development and change over the ensuing years, these talks still offer a valuable and remarkably approachable entry point to his revolutionary concepts.

The narrator sounds like a voice artist from Family Guy or The Simpsons doing a terrible, over-the-top British accent. It's comical. Sadly, it wears thin pretty quickly and makes for an unpleasant listen. Will stick to the Kindle version for now.
