Although this is more comprehensive than Freud's other works I've read, it also seems somewhat more scattered. Of course, in his direct adresses to the audience/class Freud reveals more about himself than about psychoanalysis, but that's true of all his works to some degree. There are some lectures where he doesn't even really address himself to the topic, but focuses on the audience's expectations for that topic, which isn't particularly helpful since my expectations are different than what Freud perceives the original audience's expectations to be. However, he does have some really good insights into the audience, which still hold true even though the way we think about psychology and psychoanalysis have radically changed since the time of these lectures.
