it was amazing

This is one of the books that helped me understand Freud's genius, as well as the value of psychoanalysis. It hurts me so that fewer and fewer people want to understand or appreciate Freud. Yes, I realize that the Freudian perspective, especially on things like dream interpretation, has limited value in non-Western cultures, and that for some, dream interpretation itself may not be the most insightful way to understand the subconscious.

Still--come on. This book changed Europe, and the course of history, as well as humankind's awareness of our inner lives. I love it.

Amon Sonyu Amen to that, bro.

Barya Hussain Agree completely. Not to mention that almost all theories of psychology are off shoots of Freud.
