What Would Freud Do?

How the greatest psychotherapists would solve your everyday problems

By Sarah Tomley

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

Let the greatest minds of every generation advise you on the everyday problems in your life.

Let the greatest minds of every generation advise you on the everyday problems in your life.

Ever wondered what a great therapist like Freud or Jung would have to say about your horrible boss, your phone-checking addiction or an occasional wish to cheat on your partner? Ever wished someone would explain why you sometimes act like an idiot just when you want to look good, or generally keep doing things you don't really want to do?

This book uses the theories of more than 80 psychological thinkers, past and present, to shine new light onto today's everyday problems. From Erich Fromm on how to find Mr/Mrs Right, to Jaak Panksepp on road rage and Magda Arnold on how to deal with 'banter', these theorists have intriuging suggestions for ways to see and do things differently.

Divided into five sections, including 'What am I like?', and 'Why am I acting like this?', other questions include:

-'My family's a nightmare -- shall I cut them off?'
-'Is my partner lying to me?'
-'Why do I keep buying the same brand all the time?'
-'How can I stop people unfriending me on social media?'
-'Why do I lie when she says "Does my bum look big in this?"'


With Sarah Tomley's enlightening commentary throughout, this book provides the answers to the most deep and meaningful (or, indeed, shallow and meaningless) questions that you have ever pondered. A pocket guide to facing the hurdles and obstacles of life, with the advice of all the greatest psychologists at your fingertips.

Biographical Notes

Sarah Tomley is a psychotherapist, writer and editor. She has contributed to many books on psychology and other social sciences, such as The Philosophy Book and The Psychology Book, both published by Dorling Kindersley.

Dances with Limeys - Living with the British

Reginald D. Hunter
Authors:
Reginald D. Hunter

Before he left the States for the UK back in 1997, Hunter's sister warned him not to be too smiley or friendly - 'they're suspicious of optimism'. He laughed, hugged her goodbye and merrily boarded the plane. One attempt at a chirpy greeting on the London Underground was enough to teach him the truth of his sister's words, with an entire carriage staring at their feet, or at him, in horror. The ensuing years living among the British have continued to throw up more questions - and occasionally some answers - for Hunter: experiencing weather that is best for suicidal, alcoholic, posthumously-famous poets leads him to ponder whether early Britons committed a cosmic violation that resulted in the punishment of endless rain; while the British tendency to start relationships in a vague, alcohol-induced fashion continues to prove perplexing for someone used to American dating etiquette. One of the most popular and thought-provoking comedians in the UK, and a regular on TV, Reginald D. Hunter explores the good, the bad and the ugly of living in Britain in this, his first book, Dances with Limeys.
