In the fall of 1900, Dora’s father forces her to begin treatment with the doctor. Visiting him daily, the seventeen-year-old girl lies on his ottoman and tells him frankly about her strange life, and above all about her father's desires as far as she is concerned. But Dora abruptly ends her treatment after only eleven weeks, just as Freud was convinced he was on the cusp of a major discovery. In Dreaming for Freud, Kohler explores what might have happened between the man who changed the face of psychotherapy and the beautiful young woman who gave him her dreams.

I agree that Hysterical by Rebecca Coffey was a better read, as well as allows you to really understand the man and the family through the fiction. This just takes one little tangent from that book. There's a bit of overload on Freud related themes lately.

Sincle this was a Penguin paperback, I was expecting more of this book. Much inferior to another recent book about Freud and his women--Hysterical--by Rebecca Coffey. Read that instead!
