'Extraordinary.. These letters are remarkable for many reasons. Written during the years in which Freud was fathering the key notions of psychoanalysis as well as a family and career, they reveal his thought processes as he shares them generously, almost prodigally, and unguardedly with his trusted correspondent.' -Chicago Tribune Bookworld
Paperback, 544 pages
Published October 1st 1986 by Belknap Press (first published 1950)
