"Dreams are our chance to eavesdrop on a conversation between our unconscious and conscious minds, offering us opportunities to understand ourselves better and achieve greater inner harmony," writes David Fontana, a psychologist known for his dream workshops and his previous books on dreams, which have been translated into 21 languages.

In this well-designed paperback, he welcomes us to the wonderful world of sleep and then proceeds to the main goal: a lively and comprehensive guide to remembering and understanding dreams. In sections on approaching the dream world, contacting the dream world, the art of dream control, the art of interpretation, a dreamer's guide to the whole self, and help from the unconscious, Fontana does a masterful job conveying the mysteries and the abundant meanings of this path of wisdom. Here are some of the treasures to be found in this book:

• 150 illustrations evoking the surreal qualities of dreams
• 50 exercises to explore night journeys
• a brief A-Z directory of dream symbols and their meanings
