Overview

Dreams can reveal vital clues into hidden feelings, fears and desires, and understanding your dreams can lead to greater self-awareness and self-healing. Each image that appears in a dream has a meaning, which you can unlock with this invaluable and detailed guide.

Interpreting dreams is not necessarily a job for a special consultant; it is something that you can do for yourself, so long as you can be open and honest with yourself. More often than not, dreams may represent aspects of your personality which you were not consciously aware of or had not acknowledged.

The Dictionary of Dream Symbols explores the classic theories and work of Freud and Jung as well as more recent ideas on dream analysis. These theories provide a wealth of background information on the study of dreams and on the images examined. A dictionary section has over 700 entries, each entry giving a range of possible interpretations, allowing you wide scope for deciphering your dream and for assessing its implications.

    It's ok if you like Freud

    This book has some good interpretations, but they are many based on Sigmond Freuds psychosexual theory. In other words, a majority of the interpretations are based around sex. I have studied a lot of psychlogy, and I personally don't agree with most of Frueds theories, therefore I don't agree with much of this book. If you know who Freud is, and like is theories, then I would suggest this to you.

    Not good

    I would not recommend this dream book. He has more introduction than dream symbols. This is the worst dream book I've ever read.

    The One-Person Point of View

    I believe that anyone having problems understanding their dreams,this would be the book to read. I had alot of dreams about me dying and thanks to the book I now understand things that were casuing the dreams to occur. I just wanted to thank Mr.Eric for writing the book so that people like me could understand more about our dreams.
