Publisher's Synopsis

What Would Freud Do? uses the key ideas of more than 80 psychological thinkers, past and present, to shine new light onto today's everyday problems.

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?

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.
