This is a really engaging and fascinating account of the ability of dreams to help us think outside the box, to see problems clearly and to access a knowledge we didn't know we had.
There are many amazing examples in many areas - particularly interesting to me were the sections on art and film and the one on health. But everybody would find something in this book to change the way they use their dreamlife.

The title of the book and the sentence on the cover seem to be misleading as this book is not a guide book. I found this book disappointing as it is only a collection of cases when a dream leads to a new idea or an inspiration for painting etc. It is fair to say this book is a history book and not a scientific book about using dreams for creative problem solving etc. I won't recommend this book to anyone unless he/she is interested in the history of dreams in art and science.
