Freud is a compelling account of his life. It is the only biography of the
great man to contain 15 items of memorabilia from the Sigmund Freud
Archives in the US, and the Freud Museum, London. It examines how
he developed the theories for which he became famous, as well as
revealing his struggles, neuroses and his attempts to use his own
techniques to understand himself. The diary extracts and personal
notes shown provide a small insight into the extraordinary mind of the
man who defined our own.
