Freud: An Introduction to his Life and Work
January 1991, Polity
'Isbister's book is like an oasis in the desert. He intelligently avoids one sidedness and partiality. He goes beyond any prejudice and achieves, globally an objective, balanced perception.'
Pablo Martinez, Christian Arena
'There is a quality of freshness and tempered enthusiasm in his writing which, ... makes for enjoyable reading; ... Isbister correlates the life and the work in ways that are interesting and sometimes illuminating.' Times Literary Supplement
'This brilliant and clearly written book provides a highly accessible introduction to Freud, the father of psycho-analysis.'
