About the Book

We are all fascinated by our dreams—and have been so throughout the ages. Yet, most of us forget our dreams by the time we awaken in the morning, and those fragmentary recollections that do remain often vanish before we’ve had a chance to jot them down and figure out their meanings. Is it possible to learn how to gather these valuable memories and, in doing so, gain a better understanding of our selves?
