This is the most modern dream book I have EVER seen, that uses modern day symbols and has definitions that actually make sense. I have tried a LOT of dream dictionaries, and this is the best of the lot, I got rid of my others. You won't find anything like if you dream of ice cream you'll have an unexpected visitor bring you a million dollars.

Make sure you don't skip over the Introduction! There is invaluable information in there.

I can't praise this book enough. For people who want to work with their dreams without being overwhelmed, this book is the answer. It's possible to go as deep as you want with this book, and also to get a good grasp of your dreams in a quick time.

Thanks Kelly!!!

I bought this book on a whim, loving the title. It's proved very valuable -- it makes it very easy to interpret a dream start to finish. By looking up the clear ideas and instructions at entries such as house, stairs, running, car, etc., you can piece together any objects and events in your dream. It doesn't contain *everything* -- like another reviewer I'd say it would be perfect paired with a 'more traditional' dream dictionary, which is the exact stated purpose of the book, but I've done just fine with this alone for several years. Her first chapter listing basic dream types and how to process them is a little bit oversimple -- the examples themselves aren't a full explanation -- but it's a useful bonus in a book whose stated goal is to be a dictionary. I never interpreted my own dreams before but have gotten better and better at it using only this book. I've also found that the process of looking up information about my dreams has helped me remember them better as time goes on. I also like her clear, to-the-point, direct address style of writing. Fun, easy, and informative, and it's led to some real personal growth as well!

The interpretation of your dreams will be so literal that you could have thought of the meanings yourself. I had high hopes for this book because of the new age terminology that it included but the definitions were so unimaginative. I feel as though, the book should tell me something that I could not have guessed myself. For example, the word "Salad" -- "a dream of eating salad signifies that you are ingesting healthy choices..." Really? How ingenious! "Hippie" -- "dreams of a hippie symbolize peace, free love, and nonviolent rebellion and perhaps passive aggression." Once again, how ingenious! Dream books that I've read in the past had better interpretations of dreams, way beyond anything the average person would think of. At the end of the day, I prefer not ta pay for something I already know, or could guess myself.

I like the author's humor and the suggestions she offers for working with your dreams. I also enjoyed some of the dream examples she included. The best part for me was the interpretation method she outlines in which you write down the key symbols from your dream in one column, your own interpretation in a second column and then, lastly, the dream dictionary definition in the third. This correlates a lot with the method we use in the "dream group" I belong to. We really encourage each other to come up with three or four of our own words to describe each of the prominant symbols in the dream, whether objects, places or people. My four words for cat (for example) may be very different from someone elses and it is ultimately most important how I perceive the symbols.

That being said, the "introduction" section of the book was fairly short and might not be comprehensive enough for someone who is just beginning to explore their dreams. I think she did a good job in a limited amount of space and certainly covered the basics, so this would be great if you don't need a lot of direction and are looking mostly for a dictionary. A also thought it was easy to navigate with the Kindle since it had a better clickable Table of Contents than others I have bought.

Here are a couple of my own little dream tips that I have used for years and that you may find helpful:

1. To remember a dream, immediately create a couple keywords to summarize it. For example, if I briefly awake right after a dream during the night about being beside a beautiful mountain stream with my favorite pet, I repeat "stream, Boots (my cat), stream, Boots, stream, Boots" over and over in my mind until I fall back asleep.

Has some interesting points in the introduction. . . but the dictionary is just ok. Personally, I think the explanations all sound like the same reworded over & over again. I will probably buy a different book.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always loved dream books but never felt fully satisfied... until now. I have been waiting for a dream book like this since I was old enough to interpret my dreams. I used to go over 3 or 4 different dream books to decipher my dreams but I finally only need one. Somehow Kelly managed to be the first person in the universe to make a genius book that covers everything in one place.
