Kati Marton, author of The Chancellor: The Remarkable Odyssey of Angela Merkel

"Part engrossing biography of the father of psychoanalysis, part vivid group portrait of the circle of notables who rescued Sigmund Freud from the Nazis, Andrew Nagorski's Saving Freud pulses with urgent life. Nagorski captures the power of self-delusion and denial even among the most brilliant minds. "A nation that produced Goethe," Freud insisted, cannot embrace Hitler.  This is also an all too relevant portrait of the speed with which a refined, hyper civilized society can unravel." - Kati Marton, author of The Chancellor: The Remarkable Odyssey of Angela Merkel
