"A tantalizing exploration of Freud's escape from Vienna . . . [Cohen's] writing is passionate, sometimes wry, and always gripping."
"The author illuminates the reasons for his facts carefully and clearly . . . An illuminating look at the end of the life of a giant of psychology."
"A very quirky, highly entertaining biography of Sigmund Freud..engrossing"
"Cohen's scrupulous research will interest historians of interwar intellectual life and Freud's later years. An appendix guides readers to who-is-who in the extended family, for Freud was obsessively loyal and devoted to a set of confusingly numerous relations."
