Not exactly what I expected. Like Freud already mentioned at the end of the book, he kept his private life for himself because he thought it was not relevant (at least for this book). So this 'autobiographical study' is actually a brief summary of his work, development of his ideas and (some) thought processes behind it. Not detailed enough to provide reader a deeper understanding of psychosis, neurosis, dreams etc.. and lacking almost all informations needed to understand Freud and his state of mind during formation of all this concepts. Still an interesting read.
