This book was one of the first by which Sigmund Freud imprinted his indelible mark upon the modern world.

Happened to me in I miraculously recovered, thank the Lord and I saw it more and more frequently in the workplace before retirement.
One bright lady I know was Sure the senior execs of her outfit were tracking her every move, across the continent! Freud tried to prevent that with his patient Judge Schreber, and he failed. Schreber ended his life in an asylum. How so? Well, repressing facts as WELL as our subconscious causes paranoia, you know. Nowadays, of course, our media pulls that stunt off quite handily What does this tell us? Never short-change yourself in this chaotic freefall of media-induced frenzy. Sep 21, Cassidy added it.
I had to read it for a class, it was really awesome actually and put me into the mindset of a middle aged man who is having a sexual identity crisis. I found it quite funny! And it was only 96 pages give or take, so It only took a few hours to read, yay! Freud in new translation. Surely the appearance of Penguin's book is always eye-catching, the book as an art. I read this book as a way of updating the knowledge about Freud's ideas, but i think this book also could be read by common readers as a kind of story of the soul.

Now that I've read Tomorrow's Eve I won't be too surprised if dudes at that time felt the urge to be homo and were frightened that they could be latently homo. If I were to spend the rest of my life with a male Alicia Clary I'd go nuts too. Should read that. But here we are at last. Mar 25, Berchele rated it really liked it.
