Publisher's Summary

The Interpretation of Dreams is the book that Sigmund Freud considered his most important and that forever changed the way we think about our dreams. Here, Freud explained his discoveries about why we dream, what we dream, and what our dreams mean.
In this groundbreaking work, Freud further demonstrated that it is in the treatment of abnormal mental states that dream analysis is the most valuable. He claimed that dreams not only reveal to us the cryptic mechanisms of phobias, obsessions, and delusions but also are the most potent weapon in the healing of them.
This book is indispensable to anyone interested in dreams and dream analysis.

Audio helps Reinforce Freud

Love him or hate him, Freud was a pioneer genius. Listening to the audio helps me remember key points I missed while reading this book in college. Great purchase for anyone involved in counseling.

My Dinner with Sigmund

I loved this audiobook from the start. No, it's not easy to follow every detail. But listening to Freud talk about his dreams and what he makes of them is a great way to spend an hour or an evening. Let go of the details and enjoy listening to a great mind at work.

The book is great. It's amazing that even a hundred years after its publication, readers cannot accept it.
The recording is okay, except for the actor cannot pronounce French and Italian citations properly. But I guess one cannot have everything at the same time. He's done an excellent job with this recording, anyway.

Another reviewer deals with the content of the book and I agree that it's difficult to listen to the whole thing as it gets very repetitive and far-fetched.

The reading style does not help. It is seriously bland. I have listened to other non-fiction audiobooks where I've begun to believe that the reader is the author as he/she is so keen to enthuse and persuade. Not so with this recording - no particular point is emphasised, there's no sense of wonder - it all adds to the feeling of arrogance. Towards the end I felt a sense of doom whenever I heard this man's voice.

And a niggling point - the sections in French and Latin get quite long in the opening chapter and if they're anything like the brief Italian bit, they're not particularly well-pronounced. Why not just translate them?
