This is an outstanding intellectual study of REH. Be sure to read as many of REH's stories as you can prior because this book takes excerpts of them to analyze. First read The Dark Barbarian 1984 by Don Herron. I couldn't put these books down! Both highly recommended!!
This book covers REH's thoughts on Darwin, Freud-The Id-Ego-Super Ego, and more. It really gets you thinking. When two young children fight they scratch and claw which is innate behavior and not learned such as boxing.
