Feeling a bit dreamy? March 15 2005
By Rose Glavas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Believe it or not I have never owned a dream interpretation book before looking at Zolar's Encyclopedia and Dictionary of Dreams. I wasn't really sure what to expect.

The first edition of this book sold half a million copies worldwide and this is the first major revision of this dream dictionary. The revision includes interpretations for cell phones, computers, beepers and much more, while the listings for subjects like girdles, gleaners and grenadiers have been taken out. Personally I think that they should have been left in - some people still dream about these topics! A lucky number for each dream category has been added too, although I'm not sure how these should be used.

The entries in this encyclopedia are detailed, for example the entry for cigarette include: enjoying a; half-smoked, in hands, holding a; lighting a; loose cigarettes; man and woman smoking together; rolling a; smoking a; stubbing out a, with determination; suddenly repulsive to you; trying to give up; women dreaming of smoking a.

As with any system of interpretation, I believe that dream interpretation is a highly individual subject. I would recommend that if you want to find out more about the author and his style of interpreting dreams you can visit his website at [...] You can click on the `Dream weaver' section to interpret your dream online.

I would recommend Zolar's Encyclopedia and Dictionary of Dreams to those of you needing help in understanding the various symbolism found in dreams.

Best Dream Book Out There - and Here at Amazon.com April 4 2008
By Leah Quinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have own the earlier version for over 20 years and faithfully have been reading it everyday - I have gone through at least 4 books due to such heavy usage, so when I bought a new one - I decided to go with the updated version. Reviewing it after a week of dreams, I can truly say many items have been updated, and easily recommend this book for anyone who loves to look up their dreams. Great gift book too!

This book is thorough with detail descriptions. Easy to look up dreams and for those interested in numerology gives a number sequence to pursue. This book is the best dream book I have found.

great book, but see if you can't find an earlier edition July 4 2008
By Tony Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love Zolar's interpretations, they are great, however, I find that the older books are more accurate. And you really need to look hard and read in between the lines to get a good definition out of these books.

Disappointed Oct. 8 2006
By Lelaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was extremely disappointed when I received this book. In all fairness, I must admit that perhaps I was expecting too much from a dream dictionary. Perhaps they are all limited, and maybe I need to take a full course in dream interpreation lessons to get what I am looking for. To interpret a dream, I had looked up 'Alligators' on the internet. I found this interpretation ONLINE NOT FROM THIS BOOK, probably from some Jungian thought: "This cold blooded animal (alligator) could hold several different meanings in your dream. It could symbolically represent something from your memory, emotions, or a current situation or individual in your life. Some think that the alligator represents verbal power used in a destructive way (angry and hurtful words). Others believe that it represents an enemy. Consider the details in your dream and your level of fear. This dream symbol should encourage you to look at some of your more "dangerous" emotions, memories, and experiences. The alligators in your dreams will begin to lose the power to frighten you as your understanding increases. Carl Jung said that all wild animals indicate latent effects (feelings and emotions that we do not readily deal with). They are also symbolic of dangers (hurtful and negative things) being "swallowed" by the unconscious."

HOWEVER; ZOLAR'S definition of alligator is: "BEING ATTACKED BY AN: will be harassed and ridiculed by your enemies; "CONFRONTING AN: your unconscious fears cause your irrational actions. HANDBAG, HAVING: exercise caution with every step, care in each new speculation. SEVERAL: enemies surround you with their unconscious forces. SHOES, HAVING: be fearless with each step. WRESTLING WITH AN: an argument with a close friend is a misuse of your verbal power."

I just didn't find the Zolar's version all that useful. Yet, I do see that it has some of the elements of what an alligator represents and it addresses it from several angles. But based on what I saw all over the internet regarding alligators, it is just too short to be useful to ME. Others may see it differently, and like I said, apparently a dictionary is not the same as an interpretation, which is more what I was looking for.
