    I found this little book in a flea market, and bought it for less than a US dollar The introductory essay which comprises the first hundred pages is endearingly awkward in its phrasing The rest of the book consists of a series of essays, one of them by non other than Freud, though he never quite leaves the map, as practically all the other authors use him as an irreplaceable foundation to their own theories.What a bunch of weird shit I don t even mean that as an insult, since the words I found this little book in a flea market, and bought it for less than a US dollar The introductory essay which comprises the first hundred pages is endearingly awkward in its phrasing The rest of the book consists of a series of essays, one of them by non other than Freud, though he never quite leaves the map, as practically all the other authors use him as an irreplaceable foundation to their own theories.What a bunch of weird shit I don t even mean that as an insult, since the words anus, excrement and masturbation and all their possible variations are present throughout the book Now that s something I wasn t expecting AT ALL But before reading this, I was kinda a complete ignoramus on Freud, so I guess that was my bad Still, it was a really weird experience reading all these papers and their completely serious elaborations on how chronic gamblers share all a pathology with the infamous anal phase from their childhoods and underlying desires to either kill their fathers or be loved by them the way their mothers are I m not sure how valid these statements are nowadays, but I do know Freud is somehow, to my complete astonishment still regarded as an irrevocable authority on basically everything he ever wrote And I hate the guy.Despite all of all that, however, I found this little funny book to be quite illuminating on some aspects of the gambling mania
