Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In May, Harmony will publish Good Girls Don't Eat Dessert: Changing Your Relationship to Food and Sex, in which psychologists Rosalyn M. Meadow and Lillie Weiss note the startling parallels between the eating problems women face today and the sexual conflicts afflicting their foremothers in decades past. Throughout, their intent is to help women break the social cycle that links feelings of self-worth with the tyranny of deprivation, whatever its source. The book is a retitled reissue of Haworth Press's 1992 publication, Women's Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality. ($22 208p ISBN 0-517-70384-X) Dream work, self-help and group therapy mix in The Dreams of Women: Exploring and Interpreting Women's Dreams by British lecturer Lucy Goodison (Moving Heaven and Earth: Spirituality, Sexuality and Social Change). While drawing on the work of Jung, Freud and others, Goodison offers examples of dreams and their interpretations from women from many cultures to promote a variety of means by which women can mine their personal "gift of dreams" to enhance their well-being. Norton is publishing in April. ($23 354p ISBN 0-393-03917-X)

Format: Hardcover
"The Dreams of Women" was the best book about dreams I have read so far. From a particularly feminine perspective, Lucy Goodison ties her personal experiences and the dreams of others into her book. This rare kind of book explores particularly the dreams of women, because, in fact, they are different than those of men.
