It's a good read, and almost like a detective novel it has it's twists and turns. Well written; the novice will not get lost; takes time to explain the scientific background of the early days of psychology. Makes the point that psychological theory is still a lot of guesswork. This is reflected in the book when the author says one thing, only to contradict it a page or two later. I'm halfway through, so can't speak to the end parts, but the author is a admirer of Freud, saying that his theories of the mind have been confirmed in some cases by neuroscientists. An interesting and well-written book and I give it four stars.
