When I first bought this, it was in 2010. I started reading it on Dec. 4th and had my first Lucid Dream on Dec. 30th. It took 26 days of using the book workbook-style, going through a chapter or so a night, and following the instructions. Started a dream journal the first night. At the beginning I never remembered my dreams at all. And just 26 days later I had my first LD. During the following month, continuing to finish the book during this time, I had 30 total Lucid Dreams, sometimes 3-4 in a single night.
I haven't focused on my dreaming for quite a while, but there have been a few times during the years when I wanted a refresher, and I always go back to THIS book. I have actually read the updated versions from LaBerge, and they are simply not as good and concise and as easy to follow as the original. Plus for $8 brand new, you can't go wrong.
I plan on re-reading again soon :)
It is too bad that there isn't a Kindle version available.
Even though I continually read more books on the subject, this first book worked so well that I choose this one when buying as a gift.

Nevertheless, some of the techniques do work, and the book is very scientific, most of the time. The problem for me is it seems that after a while techniques stop working for me. I've tried a self hypnosis mp3 ( Sleep Hypnosis for Lucid Dreaming ), and the techniques in this book. Both work, but the self hypnosis mp3 only worked twice in about fifteen attempts. The techniques in this book do work from time to time, however, most of the time I find myself unable to go back to sleep after having woken up early, as the method requires. I don't know if that means that I'm just not the ideal candidate for this, or if I'm doing something wrong, or if the techniques just don't work as well as the author suggests.

Its short and sweet, and to the point. Some stuff can seem repetitive but it doesn't get irritating. A great balance of exercises, dream cycle and psychological explanations of dream patters e.c.t and first hand accounts of peoples experiences.
I would recommend this read to anyone serious about exploring the world of lucid dreaming, though it's the only book I've read on the subject, it still works. Why fix it if it ain't broke, eh?
I was having successful lucid dreaming experiences following its instructions and even half way through the book itself.
Interesting and exciting subject to delve in, and you'd regret life without exploring it at some point.
We all dream, but few of us pay much attention (few of us know how, or why we should).
If you stop to think about it, we spend at least one third of our lives asleep, and dreaming. Shouldn't we see what's going on down there, in those depths of our being?
What a book !!!
