Book Summary

Contains content from The Sigmund Freud Archives, based in the US, including a prescription issued to Freud shortly before his death, Freud's notes from the Rat Man case and extracts from his diary.

With the inclusion of 150 illustrations and documents, Freud is a compelling chronological account of Sigmund Freud's life. It examines how he developed the theories for which he became famous, and reveals his struggles with his own neuroses and his desperate attempts to use his own techniques to understand himself. With exclusive items from the London Freud Museum, such as diary extracts and personal notes, it offers a significant insight into the brain of the man who defined our own.

Sigmund Freud is known as the "Father of Psychoanalysis", and without him and his work we would not understand ourselves as well as we do. His development of techniques such as the "talking cure", free association and the interpretation of dreams revolutionized our understanding of our own subconscious.
