(The reviewer that gave her "predictions" in a general broad manner to critique Sylvia, was even funny because she showed how general preditions are not much help at all and not even worth reading hers or anyone else's was great in justaposition to true psychics such as Sylvia and James Van Praagh. I just hope she doesn't quit her day job to become a "psychic"-hahaha)
But back to her book, Sylvia is far more skilled, and even though she does not have advanced degrees in psychology or psychiatry (which may even be an asset), she does a truly fantastic job in categorizing the types of dreams you may have (both recurring and nonrecurring)into 5 basic types, and then does a truly wonderful job of discussing how you can best further analyze a troubling or mystifying dream you have had to your benefit. (Freud, on the other hand, and others who have all the PhD's seem to complicate the matter of dream interpretation far beyond the average person's ken.)
In any case, Sylvia does give specific techniques for analyzing and understanding dreams, and even getting rid of nightmares and upsetting dreams that aren't there to help us.
She also gives numerous life examples of how properly analyzing the dream can help us in our daily lives or help us dispel fears and misunderstandings when we just take some time to properly put an annoying dream in perspective.
If you are interested in what dreams mean in a simplfied form, and how you can learn some simple techiques to learn from the information which is being relayed to you in your dreams, this book indeed is a well written, easy to understand and helpful guide.Read more ›
I have recently read "What Dreams May Come" by Richard Matheson about life after death, and what I found interesting was that his book was written in the late 70's and a lot of Browne's facts/theories in her book match with what Matheson wrote about in his fictional love story. (The Hall of Wisdom, Working plateaus, etc).
There were still a few times while reading "Book of Dreams" where I had to really shake my head and wonder, "Wow, is she for real??" But I kept reading and I think the ideas and theories do make some sense. Since her theories are hard to prove, our faith and beliefs are what spirituality is all about. I enjoy Browne and her books, and I rate this read a 4 out of 5 stars.
It is obvious from reading the book that Ms. Browne is a lay person and a "spiritual guide", not a scientist of any kind. I would venture to guess that most of the information she provides is based on her own opinions and conjecture rather than hard, sounds facts.
I was very disappointed with this book, and only "dream" of getting my money back . . .
but that we are all so different but not really.
To give us all the tools to figure out our lifes little quirks
can't get much better then this unless you have Sylvia sitting next to you giving you the answers. I highly recommend this book. I really enjoyed reading other peoples dreams just to see what is going on out there and it was surprising to say the least.
So give it a whorl and see where it leads you!
