Praise For Freud's Wizard

Science Communication
“[An] entertaining and rich biography…[Maddox] faithfully directs the reader to well-researched resources…Readable, at times very humorous, and certainly thought provoking.”

SciTech Book News, 12/08
“Maddox leaves the warts on Jones and everyone around him, and she fully reports the details of where their feuds took them.”

American Journal of Psychiatry, June 2009
“[A] superb biography…Adds a long-overdue chapter to the story of psychoanalysis and an unanticipated perspective on its ascendancy…Will delight and inform even those with extensive prior reading in the history of psychoanalysis.”
