"[A] solid how-to book . . . For amateur dream researchers, this is a must." —Whole Earth Review
From the Publisher
This book goes far beyond the confines of pop dream psychology,establishing a scientifically
researched framework for using luciddreaming--that is, consciously influencing the outcome of
your dreams. Based on Dr. Stephen LaBerge's extensive laboratory work at Stanford University
mapping mind/body relationships during the dream state, as wellas the teachings of Tibetan
dream yogis and the work of other scientists, including German psycholgist Paul Tholey,
this practical workbook will show you how to use your dreams to: Solve problems; Gain greater
confidence; improve creativity, and more.

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.
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.
It tells many misconceptions about dreams. Shows that although dreams can have deep meaning and lead to enhanced understanding, they don't always have to. Some dreams are a means of maintaining your mental architecture. Some dreams are fantasies. Some do have deep meaning. Some are how the mind heals itself.
It explains many mental triggers. Shows how imagery affects perception. How to deliberately build dreams and how those affect the waking state. This book can help readers gain a stronger connection to their dreams, and learn to treasure their dreams.
