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.

A must for anyone interested in psych theory. The overview it supplies is truly tremendous. Whether you a training healthcare professional, or someone curious of the inner processes of the human workings, it stands apart as a great place to start the journey within.

Paul O'Rourke is a Manhattan dentist with a thriving practice leading a quiet, routine-driven life. But behind the smiles and the nice apartment, he's a man made of contradictions, and his biggest fear is that he may never truly come to understand anybody, including himself. Then someone begins to impersonate Paul online, and he watches in horror as a website, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account are created in his name.

The narrator does a tremendous job in taking the listener, no, guiding them through a witty display of the multitude of aspects that create thought and feeling; reminding us to just do. If you enjoy a bit of cynicalism, irony, and just an overall sense of well damn sometimes, its worth the listen. It's a little rocky at first, but develops ever so nicely.
