    The author presented a straightforward, step-by-step approach to interpreting dreams. The tools needed for understanding the voice that speaks to us at night was well explained. Putting them to practice provided me with a good place to start. What's more, a background in the psychology of dream interpretation is not required to receive the full benefits from this relatively short but comprehensive handbook.

    Many mornings upon awakening, if lucky, there'd be remnants of a partial recollection of what I'd dreamt about. Many a time, in an attempt to interpret the meaning, all too often I'd come up short. The depth achieved at trying to unravel the meaning of my inner thoughts were at best - shallow. That's just the way it goes for everyone, and simply, there was nothing that could be done about that; so, I thought. The information within this book taught me otherwise. 

    What's been lurking within the shadows of my mind had always appeared to be nothing short of a science fiction movie, and of course, I was the star of the show. The sequences and events experienced were nothing like anything in my waking life. Are they ever?

    After reading this well-written guide, I'm more prepared for being able to capture the hidden meaning of what my mind's been trying to tell me. Well-armed, now I know what to look for. It's easier than I had ever imagined. Helpful examples and numerous tips provided the building blocks for unlocking the meaning of my dreams. 

    Kudos to Nancy Wagaman for helping me find the pathway to capture the significance of what plays over in my mind, night after night. No longer will they come to elude me. Now, after all this time, I've begun to just uncover what's been lying beneath the surface.

    Discover the 

    you that never leaves your side. It's time to stop trying to put the square peg in the round hole. Give it a try. It's never too late to start. This book comes well recommended.

    While Freudian therapy is far less efficient than modern techniques, many of the old boy’s insights are still valid. The power of what goes on below consciousness is one of them. I think of the conscious mind as a monkey riding an elephant. The elephant does all the work, but the monkey gives it directions. I prefer to talk with the elephant through hypnosis, but dream analysis works equally well. So, analyzing your dreams is not an idle pursuit, but a means to resolving painful issues, and a pa

I prefer to talk with the elephant through hypnosis, but dream analysis works equally well. So, analyzing your dreams is not an idle pursuit, but a means to resolving painful issues, and a path to personal growth.

    Think of this book as a textbook on dream interpretation, and you won’t be far wrong. Nancy Wagaman explains the relevant concepts, techniques and caveats as well as I’ve ever seen. She has a knack of explaining complex, vague concepts in clear words. Her chapter on intuition is an example.

    This little book is intended as a free or low-cost giveaway, with two purposes. It is a lead-in to the author’s more comprehensive books, and an introduction to the concepts. All the same, an intelligent, thoughtful reader with no previous experience should be able to carry out significant dream analysis based on this book alone.

    This book was amazing. If you're interested in learning how to interpret your dreams or if, like me, you've been interested/already doing it for years, then you've come to the right book!

This book talks about looking beyond the obvious, letting intuition be your guide, and the two other most important aspects when trying to interpret your dreams; context and personal meaning. I love the way

This book talks about looking beyond the obvious, letting intuition be your guide, and the two other most important aspects when trying to interpret your dreams; context and personal meaning. I love the way the Kindle version of this book provides links to similar symbols. I, however, can't wait to buy a physical copy of this book so that I can flip through and find what I'm looking for even quicker. I plan on this book becoming one of my main sources for dream interpretations.

    "Wow! I just had the strangest dream. It felt like it was real." How many times have you awaken with just that very thought? We've all done that. But here's the thing, they are real to some extent. Maybe not in a literal sense but those dreams of yours are a part of your psyche sending you messages or working out real life concerns within your waking life. They are clues, or the keys as Nancy Wagaman calls them, to your subconscious mind.

    "Wow! I just had the strangest dream. It felt like it was real." How many times have you awaken with just that very thought? We've all done that. But here's the thing, they are real to some extent. Maybe not in a literal sense but those dreams of yours are a part of your psyche sending you messages or working out real life concerns within your waking life. They are clues, or the keys as Nancy Wagaman calls them, to your subconscious mind.

    Nancy's book, The Curious Dreamer's Dream Essentials is a guide to help you explore and understand what all that nighttime entertainment is all about. She presents you with your own set of keys to enter your mind so that you can receive a wealth of understanding about what is going on inside of your head. First you unlock the door inside your house, or mind, and then you use the remaining keys to unlock the doors of the many rooms, or parts of your thinking process, to discover what lies inside.

    One of the first things that struck me as I started reading the book was just how amazingly organized Wagaman is as a writer, as well as a teacher. Dream analysis can be rather confusing and daunting when you start to pick the pieces apart and yet try to understand them as a whole in relation to whatever sort of experiences the dreamer is going through. This is a step-by-step guide that starts with the basics and works its way up to an easy to understand method of the core of how one can interpret their dreams for a healthier and more satisfying life.

    Included in Wagaman's explanations are negatives as well as positives. In other words, what particular aspects of your dreams are not as well as what they are. This helps to define, in a more specific manner, what you should not make of your dreams as well as what they may very well, in fact, indicate. There are a lot of beliefs out there by some whom either misunderstand or have been led down a whole different path of what your dreams are meant to be. She does not address any of these concepts at all but it is evident that this is a nuts and bolts method based on scientific study without all of the heavy jargon and more advanced neuropsychological theories.

    If you have any interest in the art of interpreting your dreams, The Curious Dreamer's Dream Essentials is the perfect primer to start your journey. It's organized, concise, yet brimming with all of the basics you need to pack to take along with you on your exploration into the wilds of your inner psyche. Just let your intuition be your guide.

    Having read Nancy Wagaman's previous two interesting books about how to interpret your dreams, I am happy to say that this short book is a very good start for people who may think the other books are too complicated.

    They are not, but they provide an awful lot of information that may be a bit much for some. For me, they were very useful and therefore I think it's good this third (small) book is on the market now. Nothing can keep you now from starting to work with your dreams.

    Do you dream? Do you remember them? Are they joyous or terrifying? What is your brain trying to tell you while you sleep?

    Dreams are strange things to me. Sometimes they are happy, most of the time they are bizarre and confusing and on rare occasions, the fear and panic are so intense I fear I may never wake and escape it.

    Dreams are strange things to me. Sometimes they are happy, most of the time they are bizarre and confusing and on rare occasions, the fear and panic are so intense I fear I may never wake and escape it.

    Nancy Wagaman is a qualified psychologist and has been an expert in dream interpretation since the ’80s, so there isn’t a lot she doesn’t know about interpreting dreams and ridding yourself of the bad ones.

    Dream Essentials is exactly that. A beginners guide to understanding your dreams and how they can assist you in your waking state using Nancy’s essential dream interpretation tools. You’ll learn how to navigate your dreams and pick the symbols or events to explore further. For example; dreaming of a cat may symbolise one thing to a person, but to another, they may just really love cats! Not all symbols and events are literal, in fact, most are to be assessed in context with many other factors such as your home life, type of work you’re in and what stress levels you are under.

    If you’re experiencing vivid, reoccurring, or difficult dreams, The Curious Dreamer’s Dream Essentials is an excellent starting point to explore what happens to your mind while you sleep.

    Dream Essentials is a quick, informative read and a great lead into The Curious Dreamer’s Dream Dictionary which offers 1500 symbols to start you on your way to dream interpretation Nirvana!

    Unfortunately, I remember about 85% of my dreams. Most of the dreams I remember are very vivid and clear. I have always been curious about what my dreams mean but I never wanted to read a big thick book with a bunch of psychology terminology. I wanted to find a book like Dreams for Dummies.

    Unfortunately, I remember about 85% of my dreams. Most of the dreams I remember are very vivid and clear. I have always been curious about what my dreams mean but I never wanted to read a big thick book with a bunch of psychology terminology. I wanted to find a book like Dreams for Dummies. I must say this book is the simplest and most easy to understand. This book describes the meanings of dreams like emotions and importance. Who knew there were dream analysis tools and dream symbols. Did you know there are dream professionals who can interpret your dreams? My big issue is what to do with the dreams I remember. The best advice I got from this book is creating a dream journal. Write down my dreams! This book was great source of information and very easy to understand. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

    Personally, I tend to think that while most of our dreams are from our subconscious, there is a spiritual world too, and in my opinion, some dreams come from God for various reasons. This book doesn't go into the spiritual world at all. What The Curious Dreamer's Dream Essentials does do is help you look more clearly into your own subconscious and analyze what in your life situation and experiences may have caused you to have a particular dream.

    If you are interested in self analysis for dream interpretation, and not in the spiritual side of dreams, this book will be very beneficial to you. This author also references their other books for further study.

    Dream interpretation is something which has always fascinated me. I'm the kind of person who has lucid dreams on a regular basis and often wonders just what some of the more confusing or fantastical elements might mean. Thus, when I came across this book, I knew I had to give it a chance. After all, it claims to be the "all-in-one dream interpretation book and concise dream dictionary" and that seems like a very useful tool to have.

    Dream interpretation is something which has always fascinated me. I'm the kind of person who has lucid dreams on a regular basis and often wonders just what some of the more confusing or fantastical elements might mean. Thus, when I came across this book, I knew I had to give it a chance. After all, it claims to be the "all-in-one dream interpretation book and concise dream dictionary" and that seems like a very useful tool to have.

    Unfortunately, it's not really ALL in one, as the semi-frequent mentions of this author's other, larger books containing dream analysis guides make abundantly clear. This is more of a small refresher and a newbie's guide, I'd say. So keep that in mind while proceeding; you won't be getting the be-all, end-all guidebook here. But that's not really what this book wants to be, and thus I question the subtitle quite a bit. This book is fairly upfront from the start that it's meant to lead you into the process of interpreting and recognizing symbolism in your dreams - not to be some magic book which tells you definitively what everything means.

    In that regard, I found the book to be quite refreshing. Unlike some other sources I've found over the years, it doesn't pretend that we don't know our own minds better than some stranger's dictionary of dream elements might. The author reminds her readers that, because dreams are manifestations of our worries and subconscious thoughts, the symbols we find may not mean what they commonly do for others and, ultimately, we should listen to our intuition. If the gut instinct is, "no, that's not what this means to me," then we should listen. I wish I could go back in time and hand this advice to my teenage self, who was led down a scary path of thinking her dreams meant certain doom because of what online dream interpretations insisted the darker symbols meant.

    Overall, I'm happy with the guide to dream analysis and the advice it gives. However, it could use a bit of polish here and there. For example, it sometimes reads as if the author is trying to pad paragraphs for length like a student desperate to finish an essay, and that can get repetitive quickly. (eg. "Intuition is key in understanding dream meaning because it is the part of you that recognizes the truth. It's through your intuition that you recognize the true meaning of a dream.") I ended up skimming through a few paragraphs, if only because it felt like I was having a Groundhog Day moment - the same thing, over and over, just presented with slight variations.

    The symbols dictionary section contains fifty things ranging from very common (cats, words, being naked) to slightly more obscure (wallet, being rescued, things/people being next to other things/people), along with some useful information on what each might mean. However, it feels rather lacking compared to what I expected from a book proclaiming to be an All-In-One. It feels more like a basic primer, and honestly contains details anyone could find online for free.

    Don't get this book for the sake of the dream dictionary; you'd be wasting your money. But if you want a primer for dream analysis and some useful insight on how to make sense of what you dream, this may very well be useful for you. I'd dare say, though, that it might be a better deal to go for one or both of the author's larger books instead if you already know you're very seriously interested in dedicating time and energy to analyze your dreams; this book seems at times more like a preview for those, right down to including a sizable excerpt from one.

    (Note: I received an Advance Review Copy of this book for free from Book Sirens, and have chosen to provide honest insights on what I've read within. I do consider the book to be worth the current Amazon list price of slightly under $3.)
