Of the many books I have on dreams in my book case, this book is my favourite. I decided to search for a new copy, as my book, a 1994 print has brown pages and are well worn due to frequent use. I use this book as a reference when I am looking up symbols to assist me in interpreting my dreams. I like the variety of links Sandra uses including mythology, spirituality, archetypes and psychology. This encourages the dreamer to use the symbols as an aid not a definite. I would recommend this book to any person interested in understanding dreams from novice to serious dreamers.
