When I received the opportunity to review this book on Booksirens.com, I was excited. I previously knew very little about lucid dreaming, though reading this introductory book, I realized that I have, in fact, experienced it before.
This book is a quick and great superficial start for someone just starting to explore lucid dreaming. Having said that, I was a little disappointed overall. I realize that I need to manage my expectations with such a short book, and it would be ludicrous to expect an in-depth exploration of this concept. Where this book let me down was how it felt a bit unbalanced.
Nearly the first two-thirds felt like an introduction to me, with only the remaining third being used to discuss the practical applications. I wish more time had been spent on the latter.
Also, I have read another book by this author (which I quite enjoyed), but unlike that book, this one seemed to have significantly more typos/incoherent sentences that were missed in the editing process. Normally, I overlook the occasional error. As an author myself, I empathize with how difficult the editing process is, and how easy it can be to miss things. I may not have noticed them as much if the book had held my attention better.
Having said all that, this book does a decent job introducing the unique experience of lucid dreaming, so if you are looking for a place to start on this topic, this book is a quick read and will set you on the right track.
