Editorial Reviews

Choice
Invaluble to the novice approaching Freud's works for the first time....As an evaluation of Freud's theory, Storr's book is concise and up-to-date....An important addition to any library collection.
D. M. Thomas
Storr's brief, elegant, and interesting book coolly surveys what we might term the house of Freud and finds almost everything flawed...yet he does not dispute that the builder of the shaky house was a genius.
—(The Observer)

A model exercise in synthesis.
