Summary:

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!

    Great book. I had long been hoping for a new perspective in life from an intellectual mind with proof of why his/her reasoning is that of itself.
