In his studies of human behavior, Sigmund Freud discovered how almost imperceptible the boundary was between the normal and the abnormal. This volume — one of his most widely read books — explains, among other problems, why repressed personal desires in "normal" people frequently emerge in jokes, habits, and seemingly "accidental" gestures; the relationship between determinism, chance, and superstition; how repressed life experiences may influence mistakes in speech, reading, and writing; and how current quirks of behavior may be the results of concealed childhood memories.
