Review quote

`The best single account ever written of dream-content research....this book is one that no one with even a passing interest in dream phenomena can afford to miss.'
David Foulkes

`Written in a clear style...the chapters are well rounded with conclusions that integrate the most important results and relationships. Calvin Hall would have been delighted reading this book, which has convincingly continued and developed his ingenious work.'
Dreaming, December 1997
