Publisher Comments:

We live in a world of sensory overload, and people's dreams have come to reflect that complexity. No longer do people dream that they are standing naked in a room full of their peers. Instead, dreams might involve standing naked in the middle of a conference room, with a cell phone in one hand and an incoming call from Donald Trump. What's that all about? I HAD THE STRANGEST DREAM... will answer such questions and help readers break down the meaning of their dreams. 21st century dreamers will finally have the tools they need to tap into the power of their dreams in order to become more productive and tranquil human beings.

Synopsis:

It's a double-caf low-fat Frappuccino-kind of world, and all that bustle doesn't stop just because it's time for bed. While you sleep, your mind is busy going over everything you've experienced during the day. Now, with the only dream book that interprets both classic and new twenty-first century symbols - everything from speed dating and Botox to text messages and iPods - you can tap into your unconscious with the turn of a page. Discover the messages hidden in your dreams, your hopes, your fears, your unrealized strengths and potential. You'll learn how to recognize life-altering opportunities and become the person you've always dreamed of being.

I already own two dream dictionaries and although they are very interesting, the interpretations they give to dream symbols seem kind of far-fetched and pretty arbitrary. Which is why I liked this book much better.

In I Had The Strangest Dream..., Kelly Sullivan Walden bases her interpretations on Jungian theory, interweaving Buddhism, Hinduism and Shamanism with Jungian archetypes, with which I was already familiar. For the most part, the meanings she gives in this book make sense to me. I also like that she takes the time to discuss different types of dreams.

She classifies dreams into eight distinct categories, as well as gives great examples for each:

* Processing Dreams (aka the Personal Assistant)
* Venting Dreams (the Pool Man - who dredges up unresolved issues)
* Integration Dreams (the Artist - who recovers suppressed dimensions, "colours", of yourself)
* Breakdown/Breakthrough Dreams (the Construction Worker - who helps you accept change)
* Recurring Dreams (the Secret Agent - who has important info to tell you)
* Precognitive Dreams (the Fortune-Teller)
* Prophetic Dreams (the Angel)
* Wish Fulfillment Dreams (the Genie)

One caveat, however. It seems to me that the symbol interpretations are largely targeted towards North-American sensibilities in general, and English-speaking, relatively affluent, urban dreamers living in the United-States in particular. The author often relies on americano-centric puns and word games. While many of the included symbols may be taken at face value, others are intimately connected to language and culture.

Also, Sullivan Walden had added the very latest in dream symbols to this book. These include BlackBerry, DVD, e-book, metrosexual, Oprah Winfrey, internet, Instant Messenger, Viagra, bling bling and many other "new" expressions, with what I thought were hilarious results! I must admit I was skeptical of these at first and couldn't believe she had included some of these words (I mean, Donald Trump?!) but it is true that if you are in contact with these concepts everyday, as many of us are, you'll probably dream of them eventually.

So, if you're interested in understanding your dreams, this book is definitely a good one to add to your collection.
