Sigmund Freud's Psychopathology of Everyday Life is surely the most approachable and enjoyable of all his works. By turning the spotlight of his ideas about the nature and function of the unconscious mind onto simple and easily understandable incidents that we have all experienced, such as slips of the tongue, sudden inexplicable clumsy actions, forgetfulness, and the like, he shows us, often in rather humorous ways, just how our unconscious minds have a powerful influence on everything we say and do.

The book is personal; many of the incidents he analyzes come directly from his own life and behavor. In many cases, the book is really a kind of wry autobiography, a psychoanalyst's analysis of himself. Few will finish this book without starting to take a fresh look at their own behavior, their own small slips of the tongue and faulty actions - perhaps with the same wry smile Freud seems to wear!

    " I learned why I have lost so many umbrellas in my life. Why I try to open my office door with my house key. Now, why should my hats and caps have half-lives of less than a year? Where is that mosquito control association cap I got from the World's Leading Authority? Freud pretty much convinced me that what my grandma told me - "Lost objects go to the Moon" - is not true. Venus, maybe. "

    " Call me pedantic but there were so many mistakes in this book which was ironic considering parts of it were about errors in speech, writing and reading. And there were missing references. That aside, it just didn't have enough clarity for me. Did come across a few interesting theories though. Just about. "

    " I say this every week--keeping Freud alive in my life "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicola | 1/10/2014

    " the psychopathology of reading this book: took forever (i.e. many months) to read this, but, ultimately, is fascinating, and helps explain the comedy of errors that characterizes (my) life. offers comaraderie for the slightly neurotic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kausik R | 11/25/2013

    " i was flabbergasted when i read this book ... forgetting names and slip of tongue is not a simple science... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 8/28/2013

    " A much easier read than Civilization and its Discontents. Full of interesting examples of some bizzare associations that might explain why one would forget something. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 4/25/2013

    " Your world view is never the same again after reading this book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel | 4/6/2013

    " Much better, much more concise than "Interpretation of Dreams," (of course, a different subject) and frankly, more useful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yun Long Wong | 3/9/2013

    " Definitely not one to read when you are falling asleep, this book talks about the power of your subconsciousness and how it affects your actions and behaviour. A good read if you dont mind the small words within those long paragraphs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie Soule | 12/28/2012

    " I love Freud. <3 "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandon | 12/18/2012

    " I read this as a required reading in one of my classes in graduate school (which may have something to do with how I rated it). At the end of the book I was left wondering if anyone would ever suggest this book if the authors name wasn't Freud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snapee | 12/7/2012

    " It's all true. Very intresting and original topic. Freud was a genius. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 10/22/2012

    " Nothing that I wasn't already familiar with and yet still fascinating read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine Woodman | 9/29/2012

    " This is a phrase that I use every week. I first read this in a college course, and found his body of work to be eye opening and thought provoking--although not all that easy to read--I would never have guessed that I would go on to be a psychiatrist, but he rocked my world "
