My wife and I spend the first few minutes of our morning describing our dreams to one another and I thought this would be a fun gift, or at least a great stocking stuffer. Before making the purchase (at Barnes and Nobel) I invested a minute to read the back cover of the book and scan a few pages, and believed that this was a book describing the meanings of symbols and further dream interpretation; however, this "reference" book was written to interpret symbol meanings so one could fortell the future. In my opinion, many of the examples are just plain rediculous. But, I am not a believer of this pseudoscience so in all fairness I gave it three stars because if you are looking into the future telling business than this book might be of interest to you. Good luck. As for my wife and I, we had a good laugh and I took the book back to the store.

I have to admit, I have some very strange dreams. I discuss these dreams with my cousin & she pulls out a "dream book" her mother [my dear aunt] purchases 70 years ago. It was in paper back form and time had ravaged the paper, the cover & the first 50 pages were lost. The only thing i knew about the book was the author was very old even at the time this paperback book was purchased in the 1940s.

At our public library website, i searched and found 2 books that might fit the authors criteria. I compared and few pages and hit pay dirt when they matched. I returned the books to the library and purchased this book on amazon & presented it to my cousin for her birthday. She was absolutely delighted.

For 70 yrs this book was the book my cousin and auntie consulted about dreams and they found it to be amazingly forthright & true. A mirror into the future.

As for the comment about the "racism" from another reviewer, you must keep in mind:
The author, Gustavus Hindman Miller was born in 1850. Miller's Dictionary of Dreams first appeared in 1909, ten years after Sigmund Freud's pioneering work The Interpretation of Dreams, and is therefore an historical work on dream analysis first published at the time of a quantum leap in human consciousness. Yes the term "negro" is no longer used but within the context of time, it was a valid term. Just as you would dilute "Huckleberry Finn" with the removal of certain word we now find offensive, the same would apply to Miller's Book.

This book is terrible. Some of the older releases of these books are very racist! I find it interesting that if you dream of a black man or black person (refered to as a negro p.399), that you will have bad luck... (what [junk])!
If you want a reall Dream Dictionary, *HUNT* for "The Dream Book" or "Dream Dictionary" by Evad Aras. This is the best dream dictionary I have ever used in my life...
