KIRKUS REVIEW

Dr. Jones, noted English psychoanalyst, last living member of the ""Committee of Right"" who worked with Freud, and close personal friend of Freud, here presents the main facts of Freud's life with the further aim to relate Fraud's personality and experiences with the development of his ideas. The first volume of three, subtitled ""The Formative Years and the Great Discoveries"", carries Freud from his cradle to his forty fourth year in 1900. Dr. Jones discusses his childhood and youth, his betrothal and marriage, his early experiments with cocaine, the relation with Fliese so closely tied up with the greatest experiment of all, self analysis, Freud's discoveries of self and his concept of mind. Drawing from family correspondence, the letters of Freud to Fliese, personal and professional knowledge, the author writes to cover a life and its achievement, fully but by no means exhaustively.
