The average person will dream over 150,000 dreams in a lifetime. Most dream interpretations are based on folklore or psychology. The Complete Dream Book is based on the real-life interpretation of modern dreams.
Dr. Holloway has compiled a database of 18,000 dreams and uses the information about the dreamers to show how certain dreams are likely to recur during certain life phases, at different ages or when people are going through particular experiences (such as leaving home for the first time, changing jobs, getting married). She catalogues the most common recurring dreams and explains many dream symbols and their meanings, such as cars, houses, sexual imagery and colors.
The Complete Dream Book is focused on the self-awareness that understanding your dreams can provide, and the interpretations are accessible, clear and pragmatic. The reader will also find out how to tell if a dream is worth interpreting, whether the interpretation is the right one and how to embrace the psychic elements in dreams.
This is the only dream interpretation book based on concrete data about real people's real dreams and how the real events in their lives relate to their nighttime visions.
