5.0 out of 5 stars Best Yet December 12, 1998
Format:Hardcover
If this book popped up on your recommendation list next to a few others about dream interpretation, and you're only going to buy one..pick this one. Tony Crisp's "Dream Dictionary" is by far the most enlightening book on this subject that I have. If the subject interests you, it's fun to have a few different books by different authors to cross reference. But again, if you're only going to get one book on dreams, chose this one over any other. I found Crisp to have a much more realistic look into the subconcious than, say, Gustavus Miller ("The Dictionary of Dreams..") who seemed to have only three standard explanations of dreams... (death/illness, doom or good fortune). I find myself referring to Crisp's "Dream Dictionary" several times a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars A jewel of a book! December 19, 1999
Format:Hardcover
Once in a while, you find a special book that remains with you always, a book that is inexhaustible in the wealth of information on its pages. DREAM DICTIONARY is one such book.
Tony Crisp, a dream therapist, shares with you his knowledge based on 22 years of research. Crisp offers you useful techniques for processing your dreams quickly and easily. For those of you curious about the study of dreams, he has included the terminology about key concepts in the field of sleep and dreaming, such as archetypes, anxiety dreams, the collective unconscious, ESP in dreams, lucid dreaming and out of body experiences.
Not only will you discover how to get in touch with your "inner self" through the interpretation of your dreams, but you will also be introduced to archetypes and symbols. Although the book is predominantly aimed at the concept of dream interpretation, I even find myself looking up the meaning for symbols I see on tarot cards, or come across in other day-to-day life situations. Crisp offers valuable insight into many symbols found in our dreams (and our waking moments), such as body parts, colors, animals, family members, shapes and buildings.
This is not a typical "dream interpretation" book that gives you standard meanings for standard dreams. For example, while other books are busy spewing forth garbage that if you dream about being in a train smash, then you should avoid trains, DREAM DICTIONARY takes you on a journey into your self. Where was the train going? Who were you with? What colors did you see? What were you wearing? How did you feel? Crisp highlights the importance of each and every aspect and shows its relevance in your own life. With the DREAM DICTIONARY you can gain greater insight into your own unique experiences, and sleep your way to greater self-awareness!
DREAM DICTIONARY is a "must have" for any one wanting to unravel the mystery of their unconscious mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unreal, uncanny, so helpful! October 3, 2002
By Shaw14
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am constantly amazed by how clear my dreams become when I look up their elements in this book. The definitions allow me to immediately relate dream images to things happening in my life and from there, to understand or resolve them. Tony Crisp includes explanations of well-known psychological theory on dreams (Jung, Freud) as well as cues on processing your dreams. Overall, the book is much more than a dictionary; it really is the A-Z guide that the cover promises. That having been said, I believe the information contained here is most helpful when you're concurrently exploring your unconscious or working through issues by additional means, e.g., journaling, counseling/therapy, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE KEY TO YOUR DREAMS February 8, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Tool for Interpreting Your Dreams March 3, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my second favorite dream dictionary after "The Encyclopedia of Dreams: Symbols & Interpretations" by Rosemary Ellen Guiley. Mr. Crisp goes into a little more detail on topics such as colors (he gives many colors and their individual significance in dreams); houses (he breaks it down into rooms, walls, roof, etc.) and animals (many different animals are discussed). I can't understand the bad reviews. I've been interpreting dreams for myself and friends for years, and I love this book and find it indispensible. I highly recommend it if you want to delve further into your subconscious, dreaming mind.

More About the Author

Throughout more than four decades I have been involved in a personal search for the secrets of mind and spirit. In those years I have also been involved in teaching thousands of people techniques of deep relaxation, meditation, and methods of self exploration. Wanting to dig deep I explored the use of dreams and taught individuals and groups how to use these visions of the night to explore the deepest issues in themselves, and to touch the high ground of their spiritual awareness. I worked for twenty years as a psychotherapist using several approaches, one of which was a way of honouring the body as a doorway to the mind and emotions.

During the forty years of seeking the wild wondrous beasts of the soul and spirit, I dared my own inner adventure. But I also travelled with other people, sharing their experience of fear and wonder as they unveiled and set loose their fountain of perception. I have trod countless dream pathways, traversed the timeless with those using drugs, and wrestled with the vitality of the body as it mimed and shouted its deepest intuitions through movement, dance and voice.

So I write about dreams, about daring visions, about the power of growth and creativity within a person that attempts to burst through the restrictions and fears hemming in ones transformative power. They break through because the person dares to allow their habitual response to the world to be silenced for a while, so other voices, other views can be known. I write about this voice and vision that arises out of the silence for the person who willingly faces the ferment of discovering what their life means, and what understanding they can gather from the world around them. It is for those who do not mind the discomfort of doubt and of conjecture, because they are alive in spirit and forever taking in the new and restructuring their perception of life.

Very often we treat our own native genius, our own thrusting, living and magnificent perceptions like dangerous beasts to be held at bay lest they tear apart our attempts at building a safe concept of the world. But there is a natural bond linking us with these untamed forces in us that arises from the process of our life itself. The bond is that the forces active in the unconscious constantly strive for survival, and part of that striving is in the area of feeling, of knowing, of understanding. The struggle we see in our cells to maintain their equilibrium and identity exists also in our soul and mind. In finding an alliance instead of a state of war or suppression with this process within us, our life is enhanced, perhaps transformed.
