Format: Paperback
(See page 79 for explanation and a very funny illustration of the second stage of psychosexual development). This book, in addition to being very informative, is also incredibly funny. Very well written and drawn; though in the form of a comic book, it is nevertheless a splendid introduction to Freud's life and work. The author and illustrator are quite witty as well as knowledgeable, and in this book they have succeeded at what should be the goal of all beginners' book writers: piqued my interest in the subject and made me want to learn more. Would be a great supplementary text in a course on Freud or on psychology/psychoanalysis in general. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
I've read quite a number of 'Beginners' titles, both for study and for information; some are dreadful, but this is excellent- it helped me in no small way to a good pass-grade at A-level psychology from scratch."Freudian" gets namedropped in conversation of all kinds, but how many namedroppers actually know what they are talking about? Freuds theory is a quite abstact, apparently bizaare set of ideas, which he strung together over a number of years, influenced by the time in which he lived..the comprehension of the whys and wherefores is the perfect ground for this 'type' of book, with its style of striking, memory-aiding illustrations...if you know nothing but his name, as I did, then this book is incalcuably more useful than attempting to plough through his collected works..you might as well try and understand Marx by reading Das Kapital!

A comic book interpretation of Freuds life and basic theory. Helped me with GCSE sociology and Socilogy module in Nursing exams. Easy to read at leisure. Covers Freuds main theories Id, Ego, Oedipus Complex etc. An O.K. introduction to anyone thats never heard of Freud. Is that possible?

The pictures were fun (especially pg. 79) and the text clear and informative. This book has explained some Freudian concepts better than some of my classes in college have! Fun and stimulating at the same time... what more could someone ask for?
