I'm not particularly into new-age stuff, and this book does contain a bit of it, but I still find this book immensely enjoyable. I try and read a little before bed each night, for the writing is informative yet calming and the illustrations are also relaxing and dream-like. Unfortunately I'm usually very busy and am too tired to read every night, so I sometimes get out of the habit, but the times when I've stuck with it I've noticed I can remember more of my dreams and sometimes I've been able to lucid dream. The exercises in the book really help with remembering your dreams, controlling the content, controlling your actions (lucid dreaming), and interpretation. When I wake up in the morning, I recall all the adventures I had the night before and I feel like I've learned a little more about myself. When you can't take a vacation, you can always dream!
This book is ABSOLUTELY wonderful.
The author teaches very simply about the nature of dreaming. Experimenting with the dreaming excercises given can really enhance your experiences with delving into your subconcious. Reading the book before sleep helps open your mind & allows you to remember many details of a dream. I have this book & have given it as a gift to 2 people already (deep book though - make sure they are into this kind of thing!)
