A review of this length cannot offer detailed accounts or criticism of the contents of the book, but some general observations are in order. Roazen urgently believes that Freud studies need to be rescued from the ideological and religious shoals on which many of them have foundered. He is properly scornful of the sequestration, until as late as 2020, of documents and letters in the Freud Archive. At a relatively early stage, Roazen recognized, before many others, that there was a distinct contrast between Freud as a theoretician advocating neutrality and as a therapist heavily involved in the private life and decisions of patients, as exemplified in his dealings with the analyst Ruth Mack Brunswick and her family and in his analysis of his own daughter. The book is replete with interesting comments, anecdotes, and observations, although the level of details sometimes becomes excessive. It also appears that Roazen is somewhat thin-skinned when he feels he is being given insufficient notice or unfairly criticized, as in the reaction to the unfavorable view of Freud in Brother Animal: The Story of Freud and Tausk(1), Roazen’s account of Victor Tausk’s relationship with Freud and Tausk’s suicide.
