A biography of Sigmund Freud in comic-book form. The drawings are in a humorous cartoon style and the book is fun to read. It's only 54 pages, so it covers only the high points of his life and doesn't go deep into his theories.

If you know something about his theories but not much about his life, this book will give you an overview. If you don't know much about his theories, the book will teach you something. If you already know quite a bit about Freud, the book will give you a quick, fun read and maybe a few laughs.

Another good comic book about Freud is Sigmund Freud (Pisolo Books), which provides a good overview of his theories.

I loved this book. The biographical material is very accurate and the illlustrations have a wealthy of detailed imagery that condenses many of the true facts related to Freud' s life. I recommend it to all professionals related to Psychology, Psychoanalysis and Psyquiatry, as well as layman people.

Great graphic biography of Freud. Provides an overview of his life and wonderfully accurate descriptions of his theories. This is perfect for an intro psych course to explain psychoanalysis.

Freud's history - but in graphic novel style! I was delighted by Maier's presentation of some of the most significant moments in the history of Freudian theory development and cases.

A great graphic introduction to Freud's life and theories! Corinne Maier has done a fantastic job of exposing key moments in Freud's life and career and Anne Simon's drawings are breathtaking. Perfect for anyone who wants to dip their toes into the subject.

I have spent three years referencing Freud in deconstructing and critique-ing novels set-listed by my University in the Creative Writing field. Taken out of context and applied to situational instances in books - Freud's theories were a piece of cake! However, truly understanding the reasoning or recommended application of said theories to this day still confuses me. I purchased this book for clarification, less all the academic terminology, to help me better understand the groundwork and building pillars of Freud's theories and how they came about. This book touched on 'labelling' Freud's work, but gave no further explanation, other than stupid little jokes which contributed to...nothing. I read this book hoping to glean something, anything, to give me that 'aha' moment of clarity regarding Freud's work, and instead I was left with no solid references to commit to memory (other than his personal life) and the feeling that I have just wasted money on this book when I could have bought a 'Dummy's handbook to Freud' and be better off for it.

This book was recommended on BrainPickings and so I thought it would be enlightening and educational. Rather, it's probably set my University readings backwards just from being exposed to it! Please do not buy this book if you are truly interested in Freud's theories, as you will not gain any insight into them.
