Summary

Sigmund Freud was a catalyst who signaled a seat change in how humanity came to understand the world and how it relates to the human mind. And if you have ever had a “Freudian slip”, you know full well that the concepts and theories of Mr. Freud are well ensconced in the modern lexicon. But as much as many of us are familiar with his work, what about the man? What do we know about the person? Just who was Sigmund Freud?

Inside, you will hear about:

  • A Jewish family in Vienna 
  • The talking cure
  • The Wednesday Society
  • Working for potatoes 
  • The cancer and the monster 
  • Freud during World War II 
  • And much more!

Didn't finish this one

I didn't finish this audiobook. I wasn't feeling the narrator, and the middle of the story felt repetitive and boring. I don't know much about Sigmund Freud, but this stroy starts out interesting, and then made me feel like he was a sexist, bored man. Deciding that women with anxiety had some oppressed sexual desires that are causing the anxiety, and the way to fix it was to talk it out. I don't know about, but I'm no doctor or psychologist. It could have just been the way people thought at the time, but I feel like it could have been written differently if that wasn't the case. I couldn't finish the audiobook, it made me feel bored and annoyed.
