One half of a very good book
I'm going to be listening to the back half of this book over and over again. The ongoing research and instructions for lucid dreaming will take time to learn but puts into words something that I have done myself since my teen years.
The idea that your dream life can be a video game of your waking life allowing you to create new paths to go on, to practice and rehearse, and to explore so that you have the opportunity to experience in your waking time a far richer and more confident "time when it counts".
How to succeed in Dreamland without really trying
The beginning of the book covers the history of sleep research, which I think everyone knows. I enjoyed his retelling of Thomas Edison's flexibility with the truth as far as how much he in fact slept. Taking another look at The Wizard of Menlo Park's life as opposed to his legends is pretty common lately but both Peter Noble and author Richard Wiseman gave an especially funny "behind the curtain" look at a not so well known figure in history.
Excellent book, wonderful narration....
