The "Get a Grip" book series is one of my favorites. The books in this series consistently communicate the basics of some very complex subjects in a unique and entertaining format full of equal measure of silliness and wit. In addition to explaining the subject itself in often surprisingly accessible (but rarely condescending) language, the series strives to place the subject within a greater experiential context by offering the reader a historical overview of major players and events as they relate to other people and events with which the general public might be expected to be more familiar.

That being said, "Get a Grip on Dreams" is both condescending and an utter waste of time. Totally devoid of the series normal wit and insight, this volume imparts information that is so "well duh!" obvious it performs better as a parody of itself than it does as an information source for anyone who's graduated from diapers.

If you want to introduce your kid to a series of books that will make learning fun, or if you want to brush up on some subjects you might have slept through the first time you were supposed to learn about them, I can't more strongly recommend this series as a whole. But the volume on Dreams? Skip it. Unless, of course, you have no idea what a dream about showing up for class naked could possibly be saying about your confidence level on the subject studied.

This book dose what its title says. It is very similar to other books on interpenetrating dreams.
