I loved this book and the illustrations and paintings that complimented every concept. Waking up in one's own dream does seem to be fantastic when discovering it. How the mystics used this phenomena over the ages and what has been passed down and part of the greater social dream knowledge was interesting. I recommend this book and happily admit it was hard to put down. This book makes you want to share your dreams with others and slip into the what ifs of dreaming possibilities. This was a great read!
