This vastly enlarged and improved edition of the popular Dream Dictionary contains lots of new material from the latest scientific discoveries, Internet dreamsites and new added categories. The aim of the book is to help you make connections between your dreams and your everyday life and to discover the powerful emotions and reactions that subconsciously direct our decisions and responses in the waking state. It provides real insights that empower the reader with help in decision-making and how to bring out the best in us. Compiled from information drawn from 3000 dreams over four decades of research, the dictionary is alphabetically organised from entries on "Abandoned" to "Zoo," with the researched meanings of the things, people, creatures and places occurring in dreams, plus subject like processing your dreams, dream symbols, interpretation, recurring dreams, nightmares and how to deal with them, problem-solving and maximising your health. The introduction discusses the subconscious origin of dreams and how our dreams can help us. Exhaustive and detailed, The Dream Dictionary is an indispensable reference work to all who are interested in psychology and for individuals interested in self-development. The book concludes with a bibliography of 10 pages. It is probably the best and most detailed dream encyclopedia currently available.

I was able to figure out the significance of a reoccurring dream using Tony Crisp's book. Now I use his book almost daily to look up my dreams and it helps me understand why I'm having them, and what my subconsious is trying to tell me so that I can move on. It's a great resource!
