    I have read quite a few of these "Hourly Histories." Some are better than others but this biography on Sigmund Freud is more inferior than others. It is only the bare facts of Freud's personal life, nothing about Freud's theories on the ego and the id and the superego (theories that Freud is quite well known for although I don't agree with Freud's ideas.) This biography sometimes focused on negative aspects of Freud's life ( such as whether Freud thought his father was a coward and Freud may hav I have read quite a few of these "Hourly Histories."

This biography sometimes focused on negative aspects of Freud's life ( such as whether Freud thought his father was a coward and Freud may have had an affair with his sister-in-law.) I felt that it was unnecessary to put in those negative aspects if they can not be proven as fact. Most all of the other Hourly Histories have a final chapter as a conclusion, sort of a re-statement of the main facts of the book that brings it all together and wraps it up with final thoughts. Not this book. It ends very abruptly, stating how Freud died and then the book suddenly ends. And this Hourly History is shorter than many of the others. It left me wondering if parts of this Kindle version were missing?

    This short book is part of the Hourly History series that can be read in about an hour. Freud was a brilliant man who brought “talking it out” psychoanalysis into the mainstream. In this book, we learn about his childhood, how he came to this field and managed to introduce it to the world, how his family had to flee the Nazis, and how he died painfully from a cancerous tumor in his mouth from smoking cigars. I would’ve liked this book to delve a bit more into his controversial theories. Otherwis This short book is part of the Hourly History series that can be read in about an hour.

    το βιβλίο είναι ακριβώς αυτό που γράφει ο τίτλος του: "Σίγκμουντ Φρόυντ, η ζωή του από την αρxή ως το τέλος της". Διαβάζεται πολύ εύκολα και φυσικά το τελείωσα μέσα σε μια ώρα (όσο δηλαδή "προβλέπεται" από τους δημιουργούς της σειράς). Δυστυχώς περιέχει ελάχιστα πράγματα για το ψυχαναλυτικό έργο του μεγάλου δασκάλου. Περίμενα (κακώς) κάτι περισσότερο ... το βιβλίο είναι ακριβώς αυτό που γράφει ο τίτλος του: "Σίγκμουντ Φρόυντ, η ζωή του από την αρxή ως το τέλος της".

    I'm usually a big fan of thee "hourly history" books as you know but this one was the worst so far. It didn't focus at all on what Sigmund Freud has done but more on his parents.

    Excellent overview of Freud life, his theories (especially "talk therapy") and an illness that plagued him in his later years. One may wonder if it influenced his thinking about religion and civilization. Highly recommend this read for anyone who would like to learn more about this man's theories, his acceptance in society and his life in general.

    Short and sweet This book is more about Freud himself than his work. It's so short it doesn't really do the subject justice. You don't really get the feeling that it's a book about a great man.

    It was not this book I read however, I read something similar to this that was not of good reads.com. One of the things I'm really interested in is psychology and being able to read these books kind of widened my knowledge and perspective towards psychology.

    Incredible You think you know a historical figure. You think you know what they were about and what they stood for. Then you read something like this. What an incredible piece. Mind? BLOWN.

    Good Read I highly recommend this story of this man’s like and interaction with other. Not so much detail in his theories, but the man and his relationship with those around him. Read On!

    Another good short ebook by hourly history. Sigmund Freud. The father of psychoanalysis developed the new method of analysis called free association so as to manifest a cathartic release. He delved deep into these concepts which are now the pillars of modern psychiatry.

    He had an interesting few on religion, which made him despised by Jews and Christians. Naïve in his expectations of Nazi Germany. Suffered from cancer in his mouth. His beloved daughter Anna gave him an overdose of morphine, which caused his death.

    A bit to thin. This book is true to the definition of from beginning to end. The story just ends when he died and makes no mention of his works on a whole.

    Quite an interesting narrative of Freud's life. Sometimes, knowing the person behind the theories gives a deeper understanding of the work itself. Quite an interesting narrative of Freud's life. Sometimes, knowing the person behind the theories gives a deeper understanding of the work itself.

    A Brief Biography This Biography of Freud is stale, stiff and a bit lacking a few interesting moments from his life but not enough
