5-0 out of 5 stars Sigmund Freud
I really liked this book. It is a very solid read, that is, if you like Sigmund Freud enough to at least want to read about his theories and opinions. I give this book 5 stars, not because I completely agree with every view that is expressed in it, but because I think it was an interesting read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars awsome book
This version is very nice! I love the cover and it gives this misterious book a some kind of athmosphere. The quality is great and the story is facinating. I really love it, a great gift that you will never be wrong with!

5-0 out of 5 stars very nice version
This book is a statement, it looks great and well we all know Freud, so there is not much that I can tell you about him, that you don't already know. Hence, this review is about this version, its looks and its format. I must say, it is the nicest version I have come across, and that are many!

5-0 out of 5 stars a must have!
This book is one of the most influential book I know, it is so well written,a classic that not only students of Freud should have, we would all understand eachother better if this book would be discussed more often. Well, if you buy Freud, I recommend this version. It looks great and has a lot of space for notes on the side.

5-0 out of 5 stars very nice reamake of the classic version
I can only agree, this version, (I don't really know who it is from, but the black book with golden writing, the premium edition) is really the best! A great read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awsome version
A great book, a classic and very very educating. I got this premium edition and I like this version best because it very elegant and represents the imporance of this book already in its looks. A very nice version! What I also like is that there is a lof of room on the side to take notes, which makes it perfect for students or other interested people that want to study Nietzsche. ...

The journey to understanding begins with an extensive introduction that covers not only the classic theories of Freud and Jung, but also more recent ideas on dream analysis.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too heavily influenced by Freud
Even when this is a "half-Jungian" book, Freud's influence in it is too strong. And, as you should know, for him everything was a symbol of either "the weenie" or "the puss." And that's why I didn't like this dream dictionary at all. One can use his own imagination to come up with much better interpretations for motifs. And probably should.

ok this sounds weird but the guy who wrote this book was a previous owner of the house i live in, both me and my partner were having weird intense dreams not long after we moved in, then we get a box of these books delivered to my house, and reconied the name, he was a local vicar, the neighbours told me he went slightly mad?..the book didnt really explain too much about the murdurous dreams i was having, but just found the whole thing a bit weird.....

3-0 out of 5 stars Some good stuff
This book was o.k.It follows Jung and Freud very well.There are a lot of symbols meanings available.I had trouble relating many of the meanings to me and my dreams.One good thing was that its not one of those books that tell you your fortune or what's in the future.Also it has a good introductory about important aspects of dreaming.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best
Of the 6 or so books on dreams that I own; this is one of the best. While the interpretations given are from an analytical viewpoint, they are written in simple language and in a straight-forward manner. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand their dreams.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best for psychological dream interpretation.
I have been interested in dream analysis for several years, but each book I read gave a prophetic interpretation of dreams. Although this can be fun, I wanted to find out the deeper meaning of the themes and symbols in my dreams. This book has several explanations for each symbol, stemming from theories of Freud and Jung. It gives the reader meaningful insights about dreams, and it is also very easy to use and understand. The symbols are listed in alphabetical order, covering everything from objects to specific feelings. I have never had trouble finding anything, even if it seemed really abstract. If you are serious about dream analysis, this book should be on your nightstand. ... Read more

Dreams have variously inspired and haunted kings, poets, inventors, artists, musicians, statesmen and others since the dawn of recorded experience. Gustavus Hindman Miller's Dictionary of Dreams first appeared in 1909, ten years after Sigmund Freud's pioneering work The Interpretation of Dreams, and is therefore an historical work on dream analysis first published at the time of a quantum leap in human consciousness.

1-0 out of 5 stars Negative and down right scary funny
This was the first dream book that I ever purchased. I was 10 years old at the time so you could understand my lack of better judgement. I'm currently looking for some new dream books and decided to look up the reviews on this old book as I'm about to toss it or donate it. I was always put down by the interpretations in this book. It made me not want to dream because everything I dreamt was bad and meant harm was coming my way. So I'm reviewing this book incase someone who is new to dream interpretation doesn't make the mistake of buying this one and being turned off by all its negativity.If your well educated on the subject and are just curious about this book then go ahead. Just don't take it too seriously.
Our dreams are meant to communicate and inspire and teach us. This book doesn't support that.

1-0 out of 5 stars Go Back to Sleep, Gustavus
I found the book initially entertaining as bathroom reading, for the pure nonsense value and a glimpse into our dark past.Some examples:
Banana- To dream of bananas, foretells that you will be mated to an uninteresting and an unloved companion.
Baste- To dream of basting meats while cooking, denotes you will undermine your own expectations by folly and selfishness.
However, after around a dozen entries, they all blur together as portending either great fortune or great sorrow, with separate interpretations for women, all centering around love or how orderly their kitchen will be.After more entries, the ugly side of our dark past surfaces, with entries about Negroes, Mulattos, Jews, etc.

This book was written in a time (1909) when racist sentiment was the norm, as another reviewer points out.Use of the word "Negro" is one thing, now politically "incorrect", however interpreting dreams about "Negroes with their banjoes" as signifying "unavoidable discord...worries with hirelings...sickness" etc. is beyond PC, it's racism.Similarly, dreaming of Jews "signifies untiring ambition and an irrepressible longing after wealth and high position, which will be realized to a very small extent" and so on... In short, the book is interesting from a historical perspective, like minstrel shows, but needs to be viewed in context, and is of no other value in today's world.Sadly, this book has been latched on to by all manner of well meaning new age crackpots looking for easy answers to life's hard questions.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time or money
I got this book as a gift and still think it was a waste of money.Every dream I have looked up so far was negative, most dealing w/ some future pending event, ie if you dream 'X' you are soon to lose your job or some other misfortune.How a dream relates to some future event in the physical world I'll never know.I was hoping it would deal more w/ what's going on in my subconscious, but that doesn't seem to be what this book is about.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best and Most Accurate Dream Book I've Ever Read
Based on my experiences with this book, I cannot praise it highly enough. I've read many dream books and none of them have ever been this accurate in predicting future events based on your dreams. Almost all, most of the dreams ive had - I looked up there meanings and on most of the dreams it has a diffrent thing that will happen than the exact object or person/thing you dream of. But it always comes true IN REAL LIFE. It has been bone chilling. This book is a dream bible to me and Ive had it for about 5 yrs now and have used it till its almost fallen apart. It not only has dream meanings but the preface has the whole story of dreams over the ages and exactly how they work and affect us in the waking life. Its fascinating. Some reviewers had a problem with some racist passages or writings in here, but you have to understand the meanings in this book have been studied and some are the old meanings or they stay true to the real meaning of the dream so they use defitions from older times. And it will say somthing about a person of color once in awhile during the book.( If you have a certain dream) and those definitions are few and far between. Other than that - THIS BOOK IS REAL. Take it from me and my own experiences.- It hits the nail on the head like no other book you will ever read. Just make sure you remember most of your dreams and look up the meanings and if you have a real vivid or strange dream make sure you circle and remember the meaning of it so you can go back and look it up when the meanings happen to you in real life , whether its the next day or a couple months down the line. But i guarentee it will happen - AT least thats what happened to me. Enjoy the book. Highly Recomended

PS- I started having all these dreams and i would circle the meaning in my book so i could keep track and see if that would happen in real life and the first couple months alot of the stuff happened but there were some outlandish things like finding money that said ill never have to be worried to pay my bills again and you will be ( prosperous) and At the time i could never beleive that because my life wasnt at the best at that exact time , the stuff it said i couldnt beleive so i dismissed it ,or i kept it in the back of my mind just in case, BUT about 5-6 months later ( those dreams i circles that i said ( yea right ) to or didnt beleive CAME TRUE. So if it dosent come true right away dont dismiss the book. There is definetely a coincidence between what we dream and what happens in real life to us. They still havent figured it out but they are doing more & more research every day to try to uncover the mystery of dreams. I cant say this book has been a coincidence because to many things have been accurate and right on target. I hope you get the same pleasure out of this book I have, Enjoy.

It's a pity that "dictionary terminology" is use to perpetuate racist rhetoric. I find it quite the fascinating study that a few of the reviewers were actually turned on(almost orgasmic)by the idea of "purchasing" a book because it's banned (due to negative implications of another race). Perhaps "Aryan Nation" could be truly interpreted as the quintessential nightmare. But I suppose it is easier to attack another race while covering the evils of another. If you are the typical happy go lucky American RACIST,Get the book, it will suit your ignorant dream life for the typical idiot brain.

Product Description
Author, psychiatrist and scholar, painter, world traveler, and above all visionary dreamer, Carl Jung was one of the great figures of the twentieth century. A comprehensive compilation of his work on dreams, this popular book is without parallel. Skilfully weaving a narrative that encompasses all of his major themes - mysticism, religion, culture and symbolism - Jung brings a wealth of allusion to the collection. He identifies such issues as the filmic quality of some dreams, and the differences between 'personal dreams' - dreams that exist on the individual level - and 'big dreams' - dreams that we all experience, that come from the collective unconscious. Dreams provides the perfect introduction to his concepts to those unfamiliar with Jung's work. Perfectly illuminating his user-friendly approach to life, Dreams is the ideal addition to any Jung collection. ... Read more

The Editorial Note to this volume states, "During his period of activity as a psychoanalyst, he published several papers on dreams, and two of these are included in the present selection. Each of the other papers reprinted here, first published between 1916 and 1945, is a significant statement on diverse aspects of Jung's dream psychology."

Here are some representative quotations from the book:

"I am aware that these observations are floating in a sea of uncertainties, but I think it would be wrong to suppress them, for luckier investigators may come after us who will be able to put them in right perspective..."
"Here the question might certainly be asked: of what use is this to the dreamer if he does not understand the dream? To this I must remark that understanding is not an exclusively intellectual process for, as experience shows, a man may be influenced, and indeed convinced in the most effective way, by innumerable things of which he has no intellectual understanding."
"Every advance, every conceptual achievement of mankind, has been connected with an advance in self-awareness: man differentiated himself from the object and faced Nature as something distinct from her."
"Unfortunately Freud's idea of sexuality is incredibly elastic and so vague that it can be made to include almost anything."
"(C)onsciously the dreamer had no inkling of all this. But in his unconscious he is immersed in this sea of historical associations, so that he behaves in his dreams as if he were fully cognizant of these curious excursions into the history of the human mind."
"People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls... Thus the soul has gradually been turned into a Nazareth from which nothing good can come."
"Since we cannot possibly know the boundaries of something unknown to us, it follows that we are not in a position to set any bounds to the self."

3-0 out of 5 stars correction to review
Well at first it was a bad transaction I had gotten the wrong book but the seller made it right and sent the correct book with their regrets of the previous bad transaction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for the dreamers
This is a fantastic book for anyone interested in Jungian psychology, dream interpretation, the nature of the unconscious, alchemy, symbolism in dreams and all that fascinating stuff.
I didnt know anything about Jung or his theories until I found his memoirs Memories, Dreams, Reflections while trying to find books that discussed dreaming, and from there I was lead to this book. I will admit that some concepts are difficult to understand at times, but if you're open to thinking in new ways it will definately be an enlightening read for you, and it is set out in manageable chapters and sections so you can put it down to have a think (which you will definately need to do!) and return to it knowing exactly where you left off.

4-0 out of 5 stars challenging, rewarding, mind- opening.
I'm fairly new to Jung but also quite hooked.This was my first read after working my way through the Viking Portable Jung (which has overlapping material), and I will continue, without question, working my way through his writings (his Collected Works, volumes 6 and 9a will be my next forays).Don't be mistaken into thinking this is any sort of manual of dream interpretation --in fact Jung seems to think that you couldn't do it on your own without at least some training by someone more experienced like an analyst, and a decent knowledge of world mythology.That said, it will be a worthwhile read for any one who is dedicated to thinking about dreams in relation to the self --with the humility of an open mind.Jung's work, or what little I've read, seems to have the capacity to pry one's mind wide open (assuming one is ready --I know I wouldn't have been 5 or 10 years ago, as a graduate student in philosophy at a very analytic program).Do Keep in mind that Jung is not an easy read --especially the wandering and discursive character of his work in alchemical symbols, but it has been, without question, rewarding for me, at least.The more I read of this guy, the more I want to.

4-0 out of 5 stars Scientific
This is a good example of Dr. Jung's interperative technique in action, but you'll need to do alot of cross-referencing if you want to get a good grasp.Recommended for advanced psychoanalytic readers.Very fascinating. ... Read more

Provides a dense, tersely written introduction into Jungian dream analysis for those already with a background in psychology. Not for the novitiate.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for Advanced Students
This is a clear presentation of Jungian Dream interpretation, but it is designed for the therapist, so the less advanced reader may not know some of the major ideas.Nevertheless it is clearly and logically presented and is without flights of fancy, so it has its own value.

5-0 out of 5 stars Theory and Practice of Understanding Your Dreams
This compact discussion of the Jungian method of dream analyses is a thorough examinationof basic concepts as they are applied in practical dream interpretation. The author, a psychiatrist andJungian Analyst, clearly outlines the process of understanding dreams and addresses their purpose.Dreams are for "problem solving and personality development." First they arecompensation for conscious attitudes that are ineffective. Secondly dreams serve as guides to conscious integration of the unconscious elements of the psyche as an individual matures into an effective individuated being.
As an experienced student of dreams for 50 years, I consider this to be one of the best concise references. His example dreams illustrate the concepts and his organization of the theory of knowingone's Self is not dogmatic. Hall advises that the process is one of flexibility in differentiatingthe personal psyche of an individual from the universal and cultural structures that influence us all. ... Read more

Product Description

What are the most common dreams and why do we have them? What does a dream about death mean? What do dreams of swimming, failing, or flying symbolize?

First published by Sigmund Freud in 1899, The Interpretation of Dreams considers why we dream and what it means in the larger picture of our psychological lives. Delving into theories of manifest and latent dream content, the special language of dreams, dreams as wish fulfillments, the significance of childhood experiences, and much more, Freud, widely considered the “father of psychoanalysis,” thoroughly and thoughtfully examines dream psychology. Encompassing dozens of case histories and detailed analyses of actual dreams, this landmark text presents Freud’s legendary work as a tool for comprehending our sleeping experiences.

Renowned for translating Freud’s German writings into English, James Strachey—with the assistance of Anna Freud—first published this edition in 1953. Incorporating all textual alterations made by Freud over a period of thirty years, it remains the most complete translation of the work in print.

1-0 out of 5 stars Total thievery.
It's been weeks, and I still have not received the book. How does one prosecute these people? Amazon utterly SUCKS. Won't SOME-ONE create a book-selling website that doesn't aim to rip you off?

Freud stated in the Foreword to the Third English Edition of this book (his first major "solo" effort, after his co-authoship with Josef Breuer of Studies On Hysteria (Basic Books Classics)), "This book, with the new contribution to psychology which surprised the world when it was published (1900), remains essentially unaltered. It contains, even according to my present-day judgment, the most valuable of all the discoveries it has been my good fortune to make. Insight such as this falls to one's lot but once in a lifetime."

Here are some representative quotations from the book:

"I have already subjected perhaps more than a thousand dreams to interpretation, but I do not wish to use this material now as an introduction to the technique of dream-interpretation. For ... I should lay myself open to the objection that these are the dreams of neuropaths, so that the conclusions drawn from them would not apply to the dreams of healthy persons..."
"We should then assume that in every human being there exist, as the primary cause of dream-formation, two psychic forces (tendencies or systems), one of which forms the wish expressed by the dream, while the other exercises a censorship over this dream-wish, thereby enforcing on it a distortion. The question is, what is the nature of this second agency by virtue of which it is able to exercise its censorship?"
"In the psychic life there exist, as we have seen, repressed wishes, which belong to the first system, and to whose fulfillment the second system is opposed."
"But while psychoanalysis recognizes no essential distinctions, but only quantitative differences, between the psychic life of the normal person and that of the neurotic, the analysis of those dreams in which, in sound and sick persons alike, the repressed complexes display the same activity, reveals the absolute identity of the mechanism as well as of the symbolism."
"It is precisely the wish-fulfillment that has already caused us to divide all dreams into two groups. We have found dreams which were plainly wish-fulfillments; and others in which the wish-fulfillment was unrecognizable and was often concealed by every available means."
"At any rate, the interpretation of dreams is the via regia to a knowledge of the unconscious element in our psychic life."
"What role is now left ... to the phenomenon of consciousness, once so all-powerful and over-shadowing all else? None other than that of a sense-organ for the perception of psychic qualities."

5-0 out of 5 stars world of dreams
I sent this book as a present because I find it the best and most thorough dream dictionary I came across. It is Carl Jung style and refers to past lives, a topic in need to be explored. I have written a book myself on dreams "DARE ASKING YOUR DREAMS FOR ANSWERS", that you sell. It is a study on how to dream on demand and use our own clairvoyant mind. My experience is that most symbols are common to humanity, unless they are personal to the dreamer. The book of Wilda Tanner meets my own experience and adds to it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Resolves my dream issues!
I have owned this book for over ten years and absolutely love it! When I first purchased it, I took the time to read what the author had to say, and that made a huge difference on my ability to use my dreams to find answers. Now, the book stays on my shelf and I pull it out when I have a dream that perplexes or disturbs me. It only takes noting a few key attributes from my dream to interpret the message and gain better insight. I always feel better after using the book. Even though my dream meanings are not obvious at first, after using the book I am able to link my dreams to something realistic happening in my life. Dreams are a great way to resolve issues and find guidance, if one understands how to use them properly! I have recommended this book to several friends over the years.

Product Description
Sigmund Freud, the father of modern Psychology, was well known for his extraordinary work in dream analysis. He concluded that the unconscious mind is unleashed during the dream state. For this reason he saw an opportunity in dreams to peer into his patient’s darkest desires and deepest fears. His studies describe how his patient’s dreams reveal their daily challenges with adultery, incest, phobias, and distress. Freud’s genius lied in his ability to identify core issues that trouble his patients. Very often the issues at hand are very personal and his patients would never admit the true nature of their dilemmas. Only when recalling their dreams would his patients unwittingly reveal their unconscious mind to the questions of an experienced inquisitor. With this insight into his patient’s hidden psyche, and his own vast experience, Freud would always come up with resourceful solutions to the tribulations that his patients faced.

Inside you will learn what causes dreams and how to figure out what they mean. For example, when a young woman falls asleep and slowly looses her grip on consciousness, the unshackled and unrestrained parts of her subconsciousness start peering out of the shadows of her mind. Her carnal desires slowly creep into her weakened state of mind. As she tosses in bed these thoughts start controlling her dreams. Now, alone in her mind, she is at the mercy of the world where her libido manifests itself in both subtle and overt ways. When she wakes up she might forget or ignore what has transpired. By doing so, she will close a valuable window that reveals her true desires. Yet if she explores this facet of her existence, she can arrive at a more intimate understanding of herself. ...

She also takes traditional dream interpretation an important step further, showing us how to transform our insights into life-changing opportunities. To understand our dreams fully, we must look deep into ourselves and ask: What do I want? What am I afraid of? What is my gift? What can I share with the world? The answers will come to us in our sleep, helping us to make powerful changes in our lives. As Richmond shows us with authority and inspiration, the path to a better life is only a dream away. ...

Product Description
Yes, it's your little red wagon or, simply stated, it's your life, and only you can decide what to do with your little red wagon: you can push it, pull it or just stand and look at it! The little red wagon is a metaphor for that exciting, vibrant vehicle that transports our hopes, dreams, promise and passion. In other words, life as we would wish it to be. But to ensure that this vehicle of possibilities stays on course, we each must take responsibility for its progress and maintain control of its direction. This book is all about attitude, beliefs, expectations, thinking and behavior. It's about the power of Positive Psychology and the skills that promote optimal human functioning. And it's about developing the core strengths you need to navigate your little red wagon along the path to the good life. As Carlos Castaneda tells us, "We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same." ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Remarkably accessible, essential skills for personal growth
"It's Your Little Red Wagon" is an absolute must-have for anyone's self-help collection.As a psychologist in clinical practice, I am frequently asked to recommend books to complement the work being done in therapy.Rarely does a book come along that satisfies the needs of both the professional and the lay personal alike. Dr Sharon Esonis has supplied a first-rate addition to my cache. Not only does this easily read and understood book provide straight-forward strategies for empowering individuals to reach their own, unique goals, but it does so in a way that is clear, concise, and in plain language.

"It's Your Little Red Wagon" outlines six distinct, core strengths (optimism, courage, persistence, enthusiasm, living in the present, and resilience), each highlighted in its own chapter so that the reader can focus on one or more strength in an effort to promote growth in any of his or her chosen areas.The book does not have to be read cover to cover or front to back to be helpful.As a clinician, I am pleased to be able to encourage my clients who are reluctant to read an entire work the opportunity to focus on one core strength at a time.The descriptions and accessible examples in each chapter lay out a practical and manageable path for forward momentum.Dr. Esonis writes with such enthusiasm that the reader cannot help but begin to experience her contagious hope and power to push forward no matter how discouraged or stuck one may have felt at the start.

The burgeoning field of Positive Psychology has found a champion in Dr. Esonis.In this can-do book, she prescribes just the right dose of the tried and true, research-based strategies of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.She mixes in a touch of humor, a liberal measure of famous quotes and poems, popular movie references to supplement the learning process, and some written homework for good balance.As a whole, "It's Your Little Red Wagon" provides those essential building blocks for developing a strong sense of self that is mindful, confident, and positive.

Bravo to Dr. Esonis for "It's Your Little Red Wagon."I have already recommended this excellent book to my clients and to my colleagues.In truth, we can all benefit from the lessons in this fine work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical, Useful Tools
I have read two chapters of It's Your Little Red Wagon (so far) and enthusiastically recommend it.It is a quick, easy read, which is not to suggest it is simplistic, but written in a style that is very readable.The author provides multiple tools including relaxation techniques, self-assessment guides, motivational quotes, and resources for additional study.The wide variety of suggestions allows any reader to find the appropriate solution to suit their individual style and need.Similarly, the division of the book into specific "core strengths" allows the reader to prioritize and choose the sequence with which they prefer to read...so useful, versatile, and practical.Dr. Esonis has definitely created a valuable guide to "navigating your path to the good life." ...

Editorial Review

Product Description
One of the main tasks in the psychological individuation process is the reconciliation of opposites, especially the opposition between consciousness and the unconscious. Dreams create a bridge between these two worlds. Jung sees the dream as the steady endeavor of the unconscious to create the best possible equilibrium in the psyche. Dreams are a means to establish a homeostatic balance, or at least to show the dreamer what would be necessary to achieve this balance. Psychotherapists of many different schools use dreams in individual therapy, but very few use them in counseling couples. Indeed, marriage and family therapists often have no experience in this area because dream interpretation is seldom included in their training. In this book, with the help of numerous examples, dr. Nell explains the efficacy of dream interpretation when working with couples, individually and in groups, in the diagnosis and treatment of emotional disturbances. ... Read more

Product Description
Ever since Paleolithic people learned to draw animal forms on the walls of caves, we human have shown a mixed reaction to the animal world On the one hand we have worshiped animals as if they were gods, and on the other treated them as personal possessions to be loved and cared for.

Neil Russack has given us a beautiful and moving narrative of his experience of animals-dogs, waterbirds, deer, whales, snakes, elephants, elk, geese, frogs, dolphins, horses & many more-teasing out their psychological meaning through the use of mythology, poetry, dreams and case materials.

In harmony with Jung's theory of the collective unconscious, he places his animals each in an archetypal setting represented by the traditional four elements is made possible by another archetype, which is the initiatory act of going into the unconscious.

CONTENTS: 1) Isolation & Alienation 2) Animal Healing (Soul, Energy, Guardian, Body & Guide) 3) Through the Gate of the Snake 4) Initiation by Water (Octopus & Spiral * Waterbird *Geese * Duck, Goose & Heron * Frog * Dolphins * Whales 5) Initiation by Earth (Elephants * Deer & Elk * Boar * Horses) 6) Initiation by Fire (Imagination and Transcendence * Fire Dragon & Unicorn * Death Dragon * The Phoenix & the 1995 Pt. Reyes Fire * Guerranero, Dream Animal * Osprey * Owl 7) Returning Home (Town, Nature, the Human World * Animals in My Office) ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars some good points
Neil Russack's book, "Animal Guides" was recommended to me by a therapist who works in dream analysis. There is much to be said for the author's book, but it takes some discipline to get through it.

After a bumpy start Russack settles down as he begins to describe his patients' dreams and he seems to be a man who speaks from a good deal of professional experience. He devotes many pages to his patients and his connections with him. There are some wonderful moments about elephants and horses and dragons....Russack comes into his fullest when describing an elderly woman who can barely speak and how she is dealing with the end of her life. There are some funny moments, too.....a colleague who measured his steps from his back office to the outside at lunchtime, leapt down stairs only to find his car ticketed each day. Therapists need therapists, as they say.

I came to the conclusion early on while reading this book that the author was more interested in talking about himself. There's nothing wrong with an autobiography but I had hoped for something
more detached from his personal life. A good textbook followed by a second book of a more personal nature would have established Russack in the public's eye. The author is not a great writer (and he needs a new editor!) but he spilled all his beans at once. Perhaps there is only one book in him.

The good thing to recommend about Neil Russack's book is that those who read it might find it easier to approach therapy. Once taboo, therapy has become an accepted life force for many of us. ... Read more

Product Description

Challenging existing claims concerning the functions of Rapid Eye Movement sleep and the purported meaninglessness of dreams, this text offers a complete and up-to-date survey on the anatomy, physiology, ontogeny, and phylogeny of REM sleep as well as the cognitive neuroscience of dream phenomonolgy and dream content. The text underlines the importance of looking at how REM interacts physiologically with NREM sleep, in order to understand the potential functions of REM. The findings support and extend clams that the functions of REM involve memory consolidation and regulation of emotional conflicts and expression.

Analyses of evolutionary relationships include sleep in reptiles, birds, marsupials, and mammals. Chapters explore interactions of REM and NREM and effects of these interactions on anabolic hormone release as well as the effects on dream content, the effects of genes and genomic imprinting on sleep, and theories of dream formation and content.

Product Description
This book presents a dream interpretation system based on the percept-analytic principles pioneered by the late Zygmunt Piotrowski. The Perceptanalytic Dream System (PDS) is an effective tool for PDS analysis. Dream events are evaluated as though they were observed consciously, bringing to the surface all of an individual's intrapsychic incompatibilities, reactions to conflicts and frustrations, and conscious and unconscious images of conflict resolution. These images are "translated" into verbal language through this unique method of transcribing the unconscious in conscious terms.
