Six out of ten. The first half of the book (five lectures on psycho-analysis) are very interesting and cover Freud (at a high level) from start to finish with good examples that make the whole topic easy to understand. The second half of the book (the question of lay analysis) is less interesting - it's a discussion about who should practice psychoanalysis. This may have been pertinent when the field was new but no fully established it seems unnecessary. ( )
