This is the second, and I think better, of Faraday's two wonderful dream interpretation books. The first ("Dream Power") covered dream interpretation techniques, but also focused on the history of dream research and the different theories on what may be the biological causes and purposes of dreaming. This later book aims primarily at dream interpretation itself, how to understand what your dreams are telling you and using that to improve your life. It's very readable, not at all clinical, and is quite likely to inspire you to start a dream journal. Both books are great, but I came to this one first and it made a lasting impression on me, so I give it the sentimental edge. But check 'em both out if you're at all interested in this subject!

Ann Faraday is a British-born psychologist, who was a pioneer of the Human Potential Movement and the Association for Humanistic Psychology in Great Britain. She wrote other books such as Dr. Ann Faraday's Dream Power, The Ann Faraday Diaries, etc.

She wrote in the Introduction to this 1974 book, "This book is written in response to requests from all over the world for a comprehensive, step-by-step manual on how to understand and use dreams. My first [book]... created a great demand for more detailed instruction on how to interpret them. Many people wrote to me expressing the difficulties they experienced in learning to understand their dreams... I wrote this book in an attempt to fill those needs." (Pg. xii)

She states on the first page, "Although science is still a long way from having any comprehensive understanding of dreams, one finding has emerged pretty firmly from modern research, namely that the majority of dreams seem in some way to reflect things that have preoccupied our minds during the previous day or two." (Pg. 3) She adds, "irrespective of what kind of message they have for us, it is important to remember that dreams reflect something in or on our minds at the time of the dream... And to understand a dream properly it is necessary to see how it relates to some event or preoccupation of the past day or two." (Pg. 15) She explains, "the basic fact that seems to determine whether a person remembers them or not is the same as that which determines all other memory, namely DEGREE OF INTEREST... 'failure to dream' is ... as simple as lack of interest." (Pg.

Thirty five years later, and being now a health professionnal, this is still the best, most intriguing, most eye-opening, most useful book I've ever read on how to interpret one's own dreams

This book is the most practical and easy to use dream interpretation book I have ever come across. I have read many books over the years, and this is the only one which teaches you to personalise your dream interpretation instead of just referring you to a dream dictionary, which is not much better than a generic horoscope in the daily times. It truly demystifies your dreams. I have got more out of the knowledge this book teaches than consulting a Jungian therapist with my dreams. Well worth it.

One summer using this book I wrote down my dreams every morning. As time went by I found all the things she mentioned in my dreams - puns, advice for my life solutions to some problems (alas, not all). A very interesting book. But you have to stick with it - at first I didn't believe there could be puns in my dreams but after writing them down first thing in the morning for a few weeks, I began to remember so much more of my dreams that I found all kinds of interesting things in them.
