Publisher's Summary

A movie starring Viggo Mortensen, Keira Knightley, and Michael Fassbender! In 1907 Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung began what promised to be both a momentous collaboration and the deepest friendship of each man's life. Six years later they were bitter antagonists, locked in a savage struggle that was as much personal and emotional as it was theoretical and professional. In between them stood a young woman named Sabina Spielrein, who had been both patient and lover to Jung and colleague and confidante to Freud before going on to become an innovative psychoanalyst herself. Drawing on years of research (and a cache of recently discovered documents), this mesmerizing audiobook reconstructs the fatal triangle of Freud, Jung, and Spielrein. It encompasses clinical method and politics, hysteria and anti-Semitism, sexual duplicity and intellectual brilliance wielded as blackmail. Learned, humane, and impossible to put down, A Most Dangerous Method is intellectual history with the narrative power and emotional impact of great tragedy.

The endless recitation of psychological theories. The plot was constantly interrupted and I gave up in frustration.

No


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It made me want to learn more about this story. Hope there is a better book out there.


Any additional comments?

This is the kind of non-fiction writing that gives non-fiction a bad name.
