Summary "An insightful and practical guide to understanding the mysteries of the mind and how we can change for the better. How can it be that perfectly intelligent people do such obviously counterproductive things so much of the time? Why do we do the things we know we shouldn't do, and why do we fail to do the things we know we should do? The simple answer to these questions is that the unconscious mind greatly influences all that we do. Written by an experienced psychoanalyst with a knack for describing complex ideas in a lively and easy to comprehend way, Wisdom from the Couch will change the way you think about your internal and external life"--Page 4 of cover.
Bibliography Includes bibliographic references (pages 229-231).
