The Man, the Scientist, and the Birth of Psychoanalysis
Neurologist Sigmund Freud, known as the father of psychoanalysis, helped many dive into their subconscious and better understand themselves. Less known is that Freud struggled with neuroses too. In fact, he used some of his famed techniques on himself. This extraordinary book is a compelling chronological account of Freud's life, both personal and professional. Of particular focus is the examination of how he developed his theories. Primary sources from the London Freud Museum, such as diary extracts, rare photographs, and personal notes, give insight into the mind of the man who helped unravel the mystery of our own minds.
