No fue fácil leer los tres tomos de esta monumental obra, pero valió la pena. Para los seguidores y admiradores de Freus es una lectura indispensable.

I read volume one and kind of stopped. For me it was interesting to read about the man who I hear so much about in my Psychology and Children's Literature class. Not going to lie I did stop at page 240 because I became bored with it. But I also will admit it is a difficult text to read as well and that's another reason I probably. But, from what I read I felt it was so intriguing how Sigmund Freud developed into a noteworthy man!
