If I could give 'no stars',I would.I am not complaining abut the content of book but the font used by the publisher is ridiculous.The letters are so small and then the background space(empty space) is so big.i was wondering who got paid for such an atrocious job.I have never seen anything like this.It seemed to me to be akin to some kind of prank.If this book was written properly I would purchase it from another publisher.A altogether terrible job which could have been easily rectified by someone in charge.I have never seen anything like this in my life so I have included pictures to show.

The book may be small, but it packs a powerful punch to the mental process of understanding not only the self, but also the selves of others. I picked up this manuscript for my minor studies in psychology and behavior modification and acceptance ... I am supremely happy to have it in my collection and reference it almost daily!

I studied Psychiatry and Psychology when trianing to be a nursesonme 35 yers ago so i know about the subject matter. It is about Sigmund Frued the most celebrated Psychiatrist in history next to Jung.who was one of his pupils and confidents. If you want to learn about early human development this is a book to read. Once again it is relatively short for those who can not sustain concentration for a more lengthy book.

The book Freud wrote is great, but this is a TERRIBLE edition of it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Clearly a cheap copy of the edition that originally came out with the cover pictured. The book itself is hard enough to read. It is worth spending a couple dollars more to by a decent edition with a font that's a readable size, pages that break in sensible places, and page numbers—in case you want to discuss what you're reading with someone else and be able to tell them where you are!!

Format: Paperback
Frued's approach to sex and psychoanalytic interpretations have changed the world we live in. They are somewhat limiting theories, based on a certain stagnation of emotional development to age six or seven orientation, but interesting nevertheless. Freud's "principles" like libidinous sexual urges that operate without benefit of developmental growth a' la Erik Erikson, permeate modern thinking and language ("the Freudian slip") even though they fell out of favor to some more modern interpreters like Carl Jung, Eric Erickson, and Object Relations experts like Donald Winnicott. But Freud is ALWAYS interesting. --PJ Adams, author of Freud's Revenge

I have not read this book yet, and this is not an indictment of Freud....yet!

The book itself was very low quality. The fit and finish of the book was basically a cheap children's book. The text is all misaligned on the page, like it was done hastily in a copy machine. I am not sure if this is some kind of licensed photocopy of the book or something, but this is not a book I would leave on my coffee table. I normally highlight books as I read and then go back and reference them in the future and I will most likely not be doing that with this book.

Good ideas though some words are undefined such as object-cathexis and it was hard for me to determine whether there was a difference between ideal and id.

This book was the best tool I've found to learn how the three pillars of Freud's psychoanalytic therapy relationship with each other works.
