Publisher's Summary

Adler, along with Freud and Jung, created an entirely new branch of psychology, namely psychoanalysis. What Life Should Mean to You brings his conclusions to a popular audience. It covers adolescence, feelings of superiority and inferiority, the importance of cooperation, work, friendship, love, and marriage.

Great but Incomplete, 4 chapters missing

It’s overall great, just by comparing to the book version, there’s 4 chapters missing, not sure why

Ok book, terrible audio quality

Needs to be edited for glaring audio errors, but it has a decent thesis that is deep dived

Interesting

I found this book quite interesting. Many of the author's descriptions and examples matched up with myself and people I know. It has led me to mull over my upbriging with new understanding and how aspects of it has affected me in adulthood in ways I haven't before considered.

The editing of the narration had issues though. Several dozens of times the narrator stopped mid-sentence and repeated something he just said. Sometimes this was due to him saying the wrong word but most of the time it seems to be just a stutter in his speech. It's not horrible but it was frequent, slightly distracting and could have been easily edited out.

A little fast

I think a little slower might be better. I tried to slow it down, but the voice of the 0.8 speed sounds weird.

Great Read

Adler had many discoveries, and many delusions.

Many sentences are repeated, so no sound engineer.
