Lack of scholarly rigor and alignment with a mythic rather than an evidence-based historical paradigm is normally something that makes me stop reading, but this book is so beautifully designed that I keep coming back to it, maybe a little guiltily. It is full of really beautiful illustrations borrowed from the art of many different places and eras, and at least the illustrations are captioned to identify their sources. The book is also attractively designed, with high-quality paper, an attractive font, and a clean two-column layout. Most books about lucid dreaming that make irresponsible historical claims have no permanent place on my shelf, but I expect I'll keep this one because of its usefulness as a sourcebook for imagery.
And to be fair, probably overall the reliable historical claims outnumber the unreliable ones in this book, but it is hard to know for sure because of the lack of citations. I wish publishers weren't so convinced that books designed to be read for pleasure must abandon all scholarly rigor! Can't we have both? Good citations can be a source of pleasure in themselves, and offers the reader a roadmap for making their own further investigations.
This book dovetails beautifully with Michael Talbot's "Holographic Universe", also offered here on Amazon.
The book is in excellent condition and so beautiful, thank you!!
