I was interested in reading this book because it had excellent reviews and because I was intrigued by the idea of learning more about how the key ideas of psychoanalysis developed. Unfortunately for me, the book is probably aimed at people who are more interested in the history of the people who created psychoanalysis and their relationships, competitions, battles, etc., than in the psychological ideas themselves. I found myself skimming much of the book because I just couldn't get interested in the almost play-by-play descriptions of letters, meetings, etc.
