Better than most of its type,
This review is from: Conscious Dreaming: A Spiritual Path for Everyday Life (Paperback)
My personal disclaimer for this review is that I'm deeply suspicious about most (if not all) books in the New Age genre. I am not a believer, nor am I on a spiritual path. I'm a writer who's been researching dreams and dreaming and I've become slightly jaundiced from reading so much Jung recast as spiritual clap-trap. In that regard, this book isn't really an exception. However, it covers a much wider base of material with a significantly higher degree of internal cohesion and logic than others of its kind. It also provided a number of excellent references for further reading. I might have given it a higher score, even given that I don't share a common belief with the author, but I found the 'reality check' meanings of various dreams that he provided to be almost wildly stretched examples. What he cites as examples of dreams being reflected in real life the next day are (for the most part) as vague as horoscopes and that seriously dilutes the examples where the application is really striking.
Still, an interesting addition to a dream library.
