A mediocre book, mostly about the wonderful things that can be done when lucid, when what one needs is advice on how to become lucid. About that there's only a single page, on the hardest way to become lucid- entering the state from full wakefulness.
But it sprinkles in useful-looking tips, like "Sleep on your back", so it looks useful for supplemental background information.

Great guide to help you start lucid dreaming. Simple and easy to follow.

This is a great book to start with when introducing yourself to lucid dreaming. ANYONE CAN LEARN.
It is a guide that explains all the basics while also introducing gently some philosophical and "outside-the-box" speculations on what dreams could really be.
Ancient people of the past used to be all about lucid dreaming etc but in todays society we tend to focus on the outer world with stressful routines rather than inner self exploration so I can see how some people who have a barrier in their way of thinking may struggle with learning to lucid dream.
You have to be really DEDICATED to learning, it's not something that's a right here right now concept.
Intention is one of the most important of all. If you dont believe you can, you wont. If you dont have the most deepest of intentions and really practice (I'm talking about at least 20 minutes of contemplating/imagining yourself lucid dreaming every day for eg) then dont even bother with lucid dreaming. But persevere and you'll know it was all worth it.
When it comes to subjects such as lucid dreaming, astral projection etc. it's hard to "prove" such things exist when modern day technology cannot capture it. Thats why creating your own experiences is the best method of all.
The authors reveal plenty of their own experiences so you can get a taste of what they are talking about, and know that they know their stuff.
Don't be put of by their age. Age is just a number and does very little when it comes to knowledge. I am only 23 and I have achieved both lucid dreaming and astral projection and am one of the most conscious beings I personally know. It's changed my entire life and way of thinking.
The only thing I found questioning in this book was my speculation on whether the authors can tell if their dreaming or actually astral projecting.

Does it really work? I have a friend who has this ability to control his dreams so I was curious. I am not sure if it is possible for everybody or only some people. According to this book, you are supposed to question reality at all times, then realize you're dreaming during the dream, then take action. I always seem to be just a viewer during my dreams, not in control, and not able to ask myself any questions. I have read that this book was made by a bunch of youngsters who got a kickstart grant. I noticed that many of the examples in the book were written by the authors themselves.
