Part of the acclaimed Eminent Lives series, Freud is a concise and seductive biography of the father of psychiatry. Dr. Peter D. Kramer, the author of Listening to Prozac and Against Depression offers a critical and sympathetic portrait, recognizing what is archaic in Freud’s work and also what endures, interpreting him as not only a pioneer, but as a writer whose work will survive among the classics of literature.

Peter D. Kramer, M.D., "possibly the best-known psychiatrist in America" (New York Times), is the bestselling author of Listening to Prozac, Should You Leave?, Spectacular Happiness, Moments of Engagement, and Against Depression. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where he is a professor at Brown University and maintains a private practice.
