The Dream Book: Symbols for Self Understanding by Betty Bethards. (original © 1983) this edition, © 2009, NewCentury Publisher. ISBN 978-0-967-9790-1-4.
I usually shy away from dream dictionaries since I feel that each person’s symbology, on the whole, is unique to them. For example: your life experiences with a black cat will differ from my experiences with a black cat – therefore, we each would have different meanings/feelings/experiences with a black cat.
Less than half of this book discusses dreaming, and is done in a clear, easy to understand manner.
The rest of the book is the dream dictionary. I was pleasantly surprised by this part of the book; Bethards, I believe, did a great job on the generalized explanations and I feel this can benefit the reader.
I recommend this book for all.
