No other book I've read has had such an impact on my life as this one. I saw someone else reading this book and, since I'm interested in dreams, asked if it was a dream dictionary - as it turns out "dream dictionaries", if they claim to be able to reveal your dreams' meaning to you, are all false. Only the individual dreamer can really decide what each dream symbol means.

This is the first rule outlined in this highly educational book, which gives one instructions on how to remember, keep track of, and interpret one's dreams. Once I started following the directions and writing down my dreams every morning when I woke up, it became easier and easier to recall dreams, where before I would usually forget them.

I then began to interpret my dreams, and this is what has been so useful to me. Dreams reveal things about a person that s/he has been ignoring or denying in waking life, things that cause problems. When faced with startling truths about myself, I began to grow as a person and was able to do a better job making important decisions. I started to appreciate myself more!

This process continues today, with dreams letting me know what's *really* on my mind, even if I'd rather push these things away and procrastinate about my problems. I also had my very first lucid dream (which is exactly like being awake, except you can walk through walls, summon unicorns, etc) after reading the portion of the book about how to do it! It was one of the coolest things I've ever experienced.

I highly recommend this book to any person who wants to know and love her/himself better, make better life decisions, improve relationships with others, or just learn how to have a great time while asleep instead of thinking of it as wasted hours.

Naturally intuitive people will have an easier time learning the techniques, but the steps are clearly laid out so anyone can follow along with ease.
