Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Shelley Adler's brilliant research into and exploration of the much maligned and neglected phenomena of night-mares and sleep paralysis is essential reading for anyone who wants a clear, well-written and fascinating in-depth introduction to the field of parasomnia and the phenomenology, science and cross-cultural, historical understandings and interpretations of sleep paralysis phenomena. The book is elegantly written and is probably the standard modern text which explores the mult-dimensional cultural interpretations including it's relationship to sudden unexplained nocturnal death syndrome, PTSD nightmares, traumatic memories of childhood abuse, 'demonic visitations', alien abduction experiences whilst examining the latest research and developments in the science of REM sleep. If you are curious about such experiences, have experienced a 'night-mare' visit or want a balanced and empirical approach to the subject matter, read this, and avoid the more sensationalist, hoodoo-voodoo penny stocking thrillers on the subject that use such experiences as evidence of 'supernatural agencies', alien abductions or an 'otherworld'.
