4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and of value for those who can handle it�, 4 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Psychopathic God: Adolf Hitler (Paperback)
The Negative Aspects
Firstly, the organization of the information in this book could have been more effectively structured. The author runs circles in his various dissections of Hitler at certain points, creating a sense of deja vu for the reader, and somehow thinks that Germany's history deserves its own section at the end of the book, after many references to Hitler in history have already been made.
Secondly, the book's implementation of its goals gives the sense that the author is doing someone else's job: the author's style and presentation of facts lends to the idea that he decided to become a pyscho-analyst on a whim and thus produced this book, and would have been more comfortable presenting his knowledge under some other pretense.
The Positive Side
Assuming one can keep in mind that they are not reading actual psycho-analytical literature written by an actual psycho-analyst, the book is a gem.
As his jacket states, the author's "ultimate aim is historical", and in the historical sense, the book excels: every chapter is a joy to read, looking at Hitler in many light as a little boy, an angst-ridden teen and a political thug, while being supplemented by historical facts, anecdotes and personal insights.
The Final Say
The Psychopathic God is a valuable addition to any modern history, Holocaust, WWII or Hitler literature collection. I would recommend it to anyone who may be interested in learning about Hitler and his various realtionships in depth.
