Format: Paperback
I feel that K. Horney's book on neuosis is a breakthrough in modern psychoanalysis. It is written not only in a way that the average person can read it, but also with a style that makes it a literary work as well. Horney is far more optimistic about the fate of the neurotic that wishes to help himself through therapy than Freud was. Too bad she's not around to write more books of this nature.

I learned alot about myself and other people by reading this book. You learn about inner conflicts, what causes them, their symptoms, the consequences of having them, and how to go about resolving them. There is an emphasis on inner conflicts which are not conciously acknowledged.

This book would be relevant to almost anyone as it seems that almost everyone has them to one degree or another as inner conflicts, as Karen points out, are a normal thing to have.

Format: Paperback
Karen Horney is one of the greatest of the Post-Freudian psychoanalysts. Horney's concepts of the root causes of neurosis, a basic anxiety, a sense of lurking hypocrisy , an idealized self image, conflicting impulses, are ingeniously insightful and, I have found, correct. Her paradigm is very useful for understanding human behavior; not only the behavior of those who would be diagnosed with a formal disorder but also of those whose personalities contain elements of neurosis not extensive enough for formal diagnosis. Understanding her concepts can also be valuable for those of us who would like to understand our own neuroses better. If you want to understand psychoanalysis, read Freud, read Jung, but read Horney as well. Without her ideas, your understanding will be sorely incomplete. Remember, Jung and Frued can be integrated with Horney, synthesis brings greater understanding. Read, learn, and enjoy the benefits.
