Author clearly has a father issue with Freud
I'm half-way through listening to this book, and I'm finding biographical tidbits that are interesting. But the overwhelming impression is that this author has unprocessed issues regarding disappointment, betrayal, disillusionment and de-idealization when it comes to a father figure like Freud. He spares no effort in trying to trivialize and reframe Freud's accomplishments as those of an ambitious fame-seeking narcissist. On top of that the narrator has a penchant for enunciating every syllable perfectly and adopting a rather sarcastic tone when quoting Freud.
It's a shame Audible doesn't have more to choose from when it comes to psychoanalytic material. So for those with a need to delve into this material, there are rewards to listening to this book. But take it with a grain of salt.
