What I like most about the book is that it focus on being lucid (present) on our reality (collective dream) as an important way to get to our dreaming self, our lucid dream.
It also stresses that although this life is a "dream" we still have to take responsibility for our actions, especially when they affect our fellow human beings; for, as you know, our egomania can turn this dream into a nightmare of overwhelming suffering.
The dreaming attention is a gateway into Infinity, and the benefits of contacting your dreaming body are many. And I quote:
". . . consciousness is then not bound by space and time and personal history, and the dreamer can meet with real beings, receive teachings from real teachers, and find information helpful to others as well as to him or herself."
"Using the dream to develop freedom from limitations, to overcome obstacles in your path, and finally to recognize your true nature and the true nature of all phenomena, is to use the dream wisely."
Just attempting these meditations will certainly bring about benefits beyond compare.
Accomplish sleep yoga and you’ll find the ultimate enlightenment in this life or at least by the end of this life

This book works on a physical level with the breathing exercises; on a spiritual level by seeing through illusion, and on a mental level with the psychology of how the mind works.
If you want to get down and dirty with stripping away social conditioning and awaken from the dream, this glimmer of hope can be your handmaiden on a journey of delightful self discovery.
