Confusing, but glad to have an audio option

Where is the chapter list? This would be really helpful! The narrator does not seem to be familiar with psychoanalysis. He mispronounces oedipus every time and places incorrect emphasis on a number of key analytic terms. Having an audio option for these texts is great.

It's Not What it's Advertised to Be...

If you're interested and click on the title before purchasing, you get an entire list of what's supposed to be contained in the "collection" (i.e., A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis; Psychopathology of Everyday Life; Three Contributions to the Theory of Sex; Totem and Taboo; Leonardo Da Vinci; Dream Psychology; On Aphasia: A Monograph; The Origin and Development of Psychoanalysis; Beyond the Pleasure Principle; etc., etc.) Really? Not even close. Almost all of the entire 38 hours of this collection is a rambling dissertation of "Dream Psychology," and almost nothing else. At best, it was boring. At worst, after listening to this I find it very hard to come to terms with Freud's work--especially as it relates to psychoanalysis (which is only marginally touched on in this collection) essentially being the foundation for most of the psychiatric and psychological treatment approaches for the 20th Century. I'm pretty literate and well-educated (multiple master's degrees and a doctorate in the health sciences), but I came away pretty shocked by Freud's writing. To him, every describable pathology is related to some sort of sexual obsession or tension--largely dating to childhood and our so-called repressed desire to boink one or more of our parents. Whatever we seem to dream can only be described as related to penile or labial imagery (e.g., whether we dream of a hat, a closet, a swimming pool/lake, a snake, a walking stick, or whatever). Cocaine--which he freely admits to having been addicted to to the point of causing a deviated septum (I knew people in the 1970's that that happened to and you wouldn't believe the amount of coke they had to do to cause that to happen)--must have made him so horny it was all he could think of! Don't waste your time with this. You'll be hugely disappointed. Extremely disappointed. God only knows why this guys theories have had the long-standing impact that they have had. It only served to remind me that those of my colleagues in the health sciences go into psychiatry or psychology because they have a whole s*&$ ton of pathology themselves.

No chapters

Ugh. This is a collection but the chapters are not listed and thus you cannot find what you are looking for

Narrator is not very engaging

To me the narrator is not very engaging. Narrating feels very monotone, which might be because of the lack of understanding of the content.

Harms your ears continously

Please do not buy it. It's all wrongly edited with unbalanced sound. If you use earphones you will just suffer and won't understand anything since it is edited free of sentences continuity or any continutiy. At some points it's stops being a book but turns into a puzzle of randomply spoken sentences, or words.

Interesting author, terrible production

Freud‘s work is probably interesting. But it’s really hard to follow in this collection. The editing creates a scrappy shambles with repetitions, breaks and parts missing. And the reader has such lamentable French that it took some time to realise that he was reading occasional quotes in French and not some Slavic language
