    "This book was pretty interesting, but the actual printing of it in this version is quite flawed. The text is very small and there are several typos (not sure if they were in other versions though). A decent read if you're interested in the subject, but it's also not really modern in many ways. "

    "While not as well-known and name-brand as some of Freud's other works, this one has his name written all over it. Want more weirdly subtextual theories about how everything you do is because you secretly are thinking about sex? Here we are! It's interesting, I'll give it that. I know that a lot of Freud has been proven to be faux psychology, but this stuff does really make you think."
