Book Description

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist who founded the discipline of psychoanalysis. Freud is best known for his theories of the unconscious mind and the mechanism of repression, and for creating the clinical method of psychoanalysis for investigating the mind and treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient (or "analysand") and a psychoanalyst.
Freud postulated that sexual drives were the primary motivational forces of human life, developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association, discovered the phenomenon of transference in the therapeutic relationship and established its central role in the analytic process; he interpreted dreams as sources of insight into unconscious desires. He was an early neurological researcher into cerebral palsy, aphasia and microscopic neuroanatomy, and a prolific essayist, drawing on psychoanalysis to contribute to the history, interpretation and critique of culture.

1.0 out of 5 stars In regards to the Kindle edition... December 7, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book, but I would advise against this edition for your Kindle. After the first 10% there is an inexcusable amount of typos. It makes for a frustrating read of what would otherwise be a very engaging and beneficial work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, Logical, and Plausible (!) July 28, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic, captivating book. The theories and ideas outlined in "Psychopathology of Everyday Life" are logical and seem more applicable, plausible, and realistic (i.e. more easily seen in everyday life) than some of Freud's other theories. Highly recommended for anyone interested in psychology, character, human behavior, or Freud's work. Covers a lot about human memory. A very good resource to have.

2.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition is terrible December 18, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is great but the enormous number of typos in the Kindle edition makes it almost unreadable. i strongly recommend the book to anybody interested in the origins of psychoanalysis. However
, you should do yourself a favor and buy an alternative edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy for the lay reader to understand September 10, 2003
Format:Paperback
The republication of this authorized English edition which appeared in 1914 will enable libraries to replace aging volumes with a fresh, affordable paperwork. This remains one of Freud's most widely recognized titles, blending anecdotal accounts with his personal experience and psychological insights. His first-person, chatty tone makes it easy for the lay reader to understand his concepts of underlying psychological influences.

5.0 out of 5 stars Understanding 'Freudian Slips'. March 14, 2009
Format:Paperback
This book has possibly done more than any other book to popularise psychology. Freud wrote it deliberately for the ordinary reader at the turn of the 20th century and, as fresh editions appeared, constantly added new illustrations and anecdotes without changing his basic theories.
Here, with brief examples, we have the simple but convincing explanations of things that are familiar to everybody: the sudden forgetting of proper names, of sets of words, impressions and intentions, childhood and 'screen' memories; bungled actions and other errors; and all those little, significant mistakes of tongue and pen that have come to be called 'Freudian slips'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read! July 2, 2013
By Lacy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased the Kindle edition of this for research into Freudian slips and although there were numerous spelling and grammatical mistakes - it served its purpose. It is filler with lots of amazing information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freud January 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Read in college a LONG time ago and wanted to go back and re-read it 40 years later. Found so many things I missed in college. Classics are free so no excuse to re-read them today . . .

"Yes, a woman must be pretty if she is to please the men. A man is much better off. As long as he has five straight limbs, he needs no more."

Freudian slips, the intentional forgetting of names, losing things on purpose. . . . A book that forces you to think. Should be on the required reading list of every college curriculum.

"Unwelcome, repressed, psychic material, which, though pushed away from consciousness, is nevertheless not robbed of all capacity to express itself."
