ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Have you ever been psychoanalysed? Can you speak with authority on the Oedipal situation, polymorphous perversions, and the primal scene? If not, you bear a strong resemblance to Cyprian Jones, the amiable young man who at the beginning of this book goes unsuspecting to the analyst's couch. Like him, as the analytical hours pass, you will find your vocabulary enriched, your perceptions sharpened, your store of esoteric knowledge increased. Cyprian also gained a delectable mistress and a lucrative new profession. No one interested in reaching full psychological maturity, in becoming extremely rich, in making friends or keeping mistresses, can afford to miss this informative book. Irene Adler, herself an analyst, lets fantasy run riot in her hilarious burlesque of the process of psycho-analysis.(Publisher). Good + / good. Item #10715
