Publisher's Summary

Sigmund Freud revolutionized the way in which we think about ourselves. From its beginnings as a theory of neurosis Freud developed psychoanalysis into a general psychology, which became widely accepted as the predominant mode of discussing personality and interpersonal relationships. Anthony Storr goes one step further and investigates the status of Freud's legacy today and the disputes that surround it.

Critic Reviews

"British narrator Neville Jason sets a slow pace suited for listeners needing to absorb challenging new terms and ideas. His reading style...adds warmth to the otherwise cold rhetoric, elevating this audio-educational experience from dull to pleasant." (AudioFile)

Informative and good to listen to

What made the experience of listening to Freud the most enjoyable?

I listened to this in the car and whilst some of the concepts are complicated I got an overview of what Freud's life work is about and what texts I could look out to deepen my knowledge

What did you like best about this story?

The attempts to explain Freud's theories was concise and mostly understandable. Many of the concepts were put into historical socio-cultural context, and it was also explained how these are viewed in today's analytic context and what did not last the test of time.

What about Neville Jason’s performance did you like?

I was well read and comprehensible as far as Freud is comprehensible

Very good!

An excellent book; it does precisely what it sets out to do. Short, yet highly informed, there is no compromise in the quality of the critique

Splendid accent

A sceptical take on the Old Boy of psychoanalysis which does, however, grant his many merits. As far as I can tell an adequate place to start.

The reader's accent and delivery are splendid.
