5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for beginners and more experienced, 2 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Are You Dreaming?: Exploring Lucid Dreams: A Comprehensive Guide (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed this book- it flowed nicely and contained a wide range of information, giving what I felt was a perfect balance between variety and depth. There are lots of pointers given towards other books which go into certain aspects in more detail- depending on which interest you the most, but there is plenty of material contained within the book. Also it is very carefully and thoughtfully put together, and the author goes out of his way not to push his own conclusions on you but to offer his own perspective, ideas and guidance and the tools to explore in the way you feel is right for you. I have read several books on the subject and I found this to be the most enjoyable, readable and informative.

Many books on the subject pursue it as a paranormal activity of some kind, which in my opinion it is not, and there is none of that slant to this book, but Lucid Dreaming is recognised as an ideal means of pursuing/exploring whichever spiritual or philosophical inclinations you may have. I found the book to be very "grounded" and sensible, without being dry or dull as some of the more scientific books can be. I say it is ideal for beginners, as it is so well rounded and comprehensive, and gives good pointers to other books (e.g La Berge which I have previously read and found to be informative), but having read a fair few books on Lucid Dreaming I felt it offered me fresh insights and information and techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be on the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in Lucid Dreaming., 15 Jan 2013

This isn't some mystical pseudo-scientific guide riddled with the usual hyperbolic hocus pocus; it becomes quickly apparent that it's a carefully-crafted, objective and surprisingly comprehensive treatment of Lucid Dreaming. Its progression doesn't labour the points it makes but it's a fine starting point for those new to the subject. Happily, it also presents plenty of new material and exposition for those - like me - who've read LaBerge and dipped into the various techniques from time to time. The author's obvious enthusiasm for his subject drives the material this way and that, enabling the reader to dip in and out as time permits; it works, however, as coherent journey and I read it from cover to cover. It's a great reference document that neatly manages to complement the other, more established, works and should be on the bookshelf of everyone with an interest in Lucid Dreaming.

5.0 out of 5 stars an original, thorough and effective training guide, 15 Jan 2014

This review is from: Are You Dreaming?: Exploring Lucid Dreams: A Comprehensive Guide (Kindle Edition)
There has recently been quite a few new books in the "how to lucid dream" space, and Daniel Love's book is on the top of the heap in my opinion. First off, Love is not just repeating the LD induction basics that were laid down in the 1980s and watering them down as some books have done. Rather, he is a first rate "post-Labergian" researcher who builds off the basics with a thorough knowledge of the history of research and what's current in the field -- including neuroscience and mindfulness-based stress reduction. Love's work with developing memory skills is particularly brilliant and original. Love is a reasonable man, treading carefully in realms that can easily become grounds for hyperbole. This book is neither lightweight spiritual fluff or a reductionist take at exploring the mind. Love is inspired by mystery but is also a believer in critical thinking. As a result, the book exudes a confidence in lucidity and consciousness exploration in general - and that transfers to the reader, providing excitement, real tactics, and penetrating insight.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Glimpse of the Infinite, 18 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Daniel Love sets about tackling the nebulous world of lucid dreaming (being aware that you are dreaming while you are dreaming)in this delightful essay of personal experience. This insightful enterprise was refreshingly curious as to the nature of reality, asking more curious questions than shoving assumptions down your throat as many authors in this space tend to do.

The title just about summarizes it "Are You Dreaming?"
Well are you, I mean how would you know, how would you really know, how can you separate the dreamer from the dream?
All too often, authors in this space come at you with a model of reality that just feels far too contrived and convenient to solve the riddle of existence, but Daniel rather bravely stands up and announces that such an answer may be very far out of reach as we literally live inside the mystery with no way of seeing it from the outside, but this does not make it any less fun, on the contrary, it seems that the proverbial cosmic game of hide and seek is precisely what it is to be human.

Man's desire to seek out and search for new frontiers of experience is inherent in what and who we are, and what could be more of an adventure than a journey into the infinite landscape of your own imagination. This book is both intuitive and inventive in how we approach the world of lucid dreaming. With a firm abandonment of hearsay, the reader is asked to explore the matter themselves and answer the ultimate question only for their own experience "Are You Dreaming..?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed Research Makes Superb Reading, 18 Nov 2013
Daniel Love is clearly dedicated to his subject matter, with oodles of time and research gone into this book. So many on the subject are just rehashes of readily available info. This one is refreshing, detailed, and thorough, with lots of nuggets of wisdom you will be hard pushed to find elsewhere. Congrats on a superb book. Highly recommended for lucid dreamers.
