The speeches are a literary style invented by means of Phillip Freeman, compounded out of the spirit Freud's essays, the main excellent sort of college lecture, the main refined and savage standup comedy i've got ever heard, and, possibly oddly, the main relocating and chronic of marriage ceremony toasts. yet probably now not so oddly, for those addresses are a wedding of affection, wit, nice studying and sizeable intelligence. i do know not anything remotely like them. it's a terrific stroke of success that they've came upon their approach into print.

… a working critique of the country of the self-discipline, extra thoroughly, a critique of the kingdom of self-discipline itself in our time… Dr. Freeman has produced brilliantly inventive, psychoanalytically educated satire. He has authorized himself, as Freud wrote of the social satirist Heine, "to provide expression—jokingly, in any respect events—to mental truths which are significantly proscribed." In taking this hallowed liberty, Dr. Freeman has produced a piece that merits interpreting by means of the widest attainable viewers.
