"What a delight, then, to have a new translation of 'The Interpretation of Dreams, ' on ethat strips off the scientistic veneer and gives us a Freud who is fresh and alive.... Lovely translation." --The New York Times Book Review
--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Freud's discovery that the dream is the means by which the unconscious can be explored is undoubtedly the most revolutionary step forward in the entire history of psychology. Dreams, according to his theory, represent the hidden fulfillment of our unconscious wishes. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product Description

Nevertheless, this is a must read if you intend do broaden and develop your own insights regarding the dreamworld. It is, of course, filled with not-so-scientific, sometimes even highly subjective personal interpretations, but this is obviously a very revealing peak into one of the most fascinating minds in the field of Psychology, even though Freud himself was a neurologist.
I received it very soon, sooner than my expectations.
This is a revolutionary book about interpretation of dream. it is very important that the language and terms are chosen in a way that everybody can read it, not just specialist in this field.
this is just to say that before buying this book you should know that according to Jeff Masson (who is a true Freud expert), this translation is not the best. Strachey did not speak fluent German and many times he simply did not understand the words, let alone Freud's ideas in their entire subtlety and complexity.
I would recommend that you look for better, more modern translations (this particular one, the Feb 2010 edition, was done in 1953!)
on a different note, this particular edition is also not great because the print font is very, very small (10 point Garamond in the main print, even smaller in the many, many notes. The spacing is also tiny. Very tiring on the eye). And the book is nowhere near the 4.3 cm thickness claimed by the Amazon description, it is in fact just 3.5 cm.
according to Amazon there is an Interpretation of Dreams to be published in Nov 2010 which has Masson's name on it. Now that should be interesting!
