By Dr. Phillip Freeman

i've got heard audio cassette types of some of those wonderful speeches, simply because bootleg tapes of some of them have circulated in my circles. The speeches are a literary style invented through Phillip Freeman, compounded out of the spirit Freud's essays, the main significant sort of collage lecture, the main sophisticated and savage standup comedy i've got ever heard, and, probably oddly, the main relocating and persistent of marriage ceremony toasts. yet might be no longer so oddly, for those addresses are a wedding of affection, wit, nice studying and substantial intelligence. i do know not anything remotely like them. it's a impressive stroke of success that they've chanced on their manner into print.
Fredric Paul Smoler, Sarah Lawrence College

These wonderful, nonlinear annual disquisitions at the kingdom of psychoanalysis, gild their philosophic tablets in incredible comedian screens in their author’s erudition. fascinating the reader as they remove darkness from the a number of difficulties at present dealing with psychoanalysts, they could offer revenue and delight to a wider readership than the neighborhood celebrants to whom they have been initially addressed.
Anton Kris, MD, Boston Psychoanalytic Institute

Psychoanalysts are likely to take themselves a lot too seriously…but Phillip Freeman has an antidote… he holds up a enjoyable condo reflect … ruthlessly surveying the sector, mocking each sacred cow he can locate and puncturing any balloon that has gotten overinflated. This he does with deadpan psychotic humor and impossible to resist appeal. fortunate Boston! Phillip is the Shakespearean idiot who illuminates, and thereby ameliorates, the tragedy.
Owen Renik, MD, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute

… a operating critique of the kingdom of the self-discipline, extra competently, a critique of the kingdom of self-discipline itself in our time… Dr. Freeman has produced brilliantly artistic, psychoanalytically expert satire. He has accepted himself, as Freud wrote of the social satirist Heine, "to provide expression—jokingly, in any respect events—to mental truths which are seriously proscribed." In taking this hallowed liberty, Dr. Freeman has produced a piece that merits examining via the widest attainable viewers.
