Here are some representative quotations from the book:
"For psychoanalysis the patient's mental condition is important, but still more important is the mental condition of the doctor. Here probably lies the secret of why Freud's psychoanalysis is dieregarded by the world of science." (Pg. 19)
"When I first read Freud's writings it was the same with me as with everybody else: I would only strew the pages with question-marks. And it will be like that for everyone who reads the account of my association experiments for the first time. Luckily, anyone who wants to can repeat them, and so experience for himself what he did not believe before." (Pg. 37-38)
"It needs to be repeated again and again that practical and theoretical understanding of psychoanalysis is a function of analytical self-knowledge. Where self-knowledge fails, psychoanalysis cannot flourish." (Pg. 70)
"It will no doubt be objected that I am reading my own corrupt fantasies into the dream, as is customary with the Freudian school." (Pg. 78)
"In general, we must expect the most violent resistance from medical men and psychologists, chiefly because of scientific prejudices based on a different way of thinking to which they obstinately adhere." (Pg. 86-87)
