    1. A Dream of Undying Fame is something of a rare and amazing thing -- a weighty but short book about Sigmund Freud. Few tasks in biography can be more difficult than penning a brief book about Freud, one of the twentieth century's most iconic figures as well as a prolific producer of books, articles and concepts. Freud was complicated and fascinating, a man identified with probing into the deepest recesses of the psyche, but who kept his own interior life shrouded in mystery. He revolutionized the [...]


    2. I was not in an ideal position to enjoy this book, as much of it was a regurgitation of what I'd read before, including in Studies in Hysteria and the Penguin introductory essay, and Frederick Crew's nasty latest tome on Freud. But the last chapter, not quite twenty pages largely on the history of Freud's theories in psychoanalysis after Freud's death, provided some of what I had hoped for in Crew's book. However much you believe in this book, of great value is Berger's measured approach, pledgi [...]


    3. This is an excellent easy to read book about Freud and the beginnings of psychoanalysis. It provides a fascinating account of the relationship between Freud and his mentor Breuer, particularly around where their ideas converged and the significant points of difference. Throughout the book is the theme that Freud's genius is marred by his pursuit of notoriety, that his need for professional recognition would at times blind him to the unique needs of each of his patients, e.g Freud's preoccupation [...]


    4. The book is not great, but has some useful information. Specially biographical info on Josef Breuer and Anna O. The main problem I found is the poor judgment of the author and the lack of comprehension of the freudian theories and methods. The title of the book already shows the kind of discussion the author will try to conduct, but he does that so poorly that not even once you are led to agree with him.


    5. Fascinating picture of who Freud really was professionally and personally and, of course, WHY he was. So many Freud studies are written by acolytes and are a bit whitewashed. This portrays the man with all of his warts. He is especially diminished next to the humane, humble Breuer who not only mentored him, but supported him financially through rocky times. This is an extremely accessible, yet scientific portrait of one man who changed western thought.


    6. Another title of this book would be "The Faults of Freud: Sex isn't everything". While this book is highly critical of Freud, it attempts to not go too far and credit some of Freud's work as positive.
