Publisher's Summary

Aimed at beginners, Lucid Dreaming, Plain and Simple shows the listener how to enter and fully experience the lucid dreaming. Among the amazing things Waggoner and McCready teach listeners are how to:

  • consciously decide what actions to perform
  • explore dream space (or the contents of your subconscious)
  • interact with dream figures
  • conduct personal and scientific experiments
  • be free of waking state limitations (e.g., flying, walking through walls, and discovering creative solutions to waking issues)

This audiobook approaches lucid dreaming from a more cognitive psychology stance, and focuses more on how to lucid dream and how to use lucid dream techniques for personal growth, insight, and transformation. Whether a listener is completely new to lucid dreaming or someone who has experienced that incredible moment of realizing "This is a dream!", listeners will learn valuable tips and techniques gleaned from scientific research and decades of experience to explore this unique state of awareness more deeply.

Spirituality is not so analytical

once the author began to try to make dreaming quantitative by listing point values for dream scenarios I realized this wasn't what I was looking for.... Spirituality is felt and isn't quantifiable in my opinion.

Get a new narrator who cares about the material

Great book ruined by a narrator without heart who reads it like a math textbook. He is not connected to the material. Where is the feeling? I could have bought it on Kindle and have Siri do text to speech and get the same results.

Living lucidly...

Not sure if one will walk away from the book experiencing lucid dreams, but it is a wealth of information - some even inspiring. Addressed many aspects of lucid dreaming and I especially enjoyed how it was used to problem-solve.

For Achievers

These authors see Lucid Dreaming as more than just a chance to have some fun. Actually, that's always been a driving need for me, and has motivated me to keep seeking information on Lucid Dreaming. I'd just as soon fly around and attend parties as try to have God answer questions on who he or she is. So, for the second kind of person, this is your sort of book. It's not that hedonistic needs aren't discussed, they're just not seen as significant as spirituality. And, this is the sort of opposition you might get from your unconscious when you are trying techniques to become lucid. Maybe there's a collective unconscious need to submit in the DNA, and to just have dreams that want to behavior modify you. Hang in there, and take the suggestion on meditating, follow your breath, eventually you may have a lucid dream. I read somewhere that meditators are 100 times more likely to have a lucid dream. I still have a few now and then after 27 years.

Oh Lord, Get Me Out of Here

Yeah, I did not make it all the way through. That is a perfectly good three hours that I will never get back. Well okay, it was not a complete waste. I was gardening while I listened. I suspect that there is something to lucid dreaming, which, of course, is why I bought the book. The first clue that this may be less than reliable science was the citing of Carlos Castenada as a source. Pleeeease!!! Lest you think that I am a materialist tied religiously to cause and effect let me say that this reading was motivated by research on the subjectivity of psychedelic drugs. There is meaning in the subconscious and lucid dreaming may be an avenue to access that, but this pseudoscience is not a likely path. In addition to conjuring fiction as science, these authors also float endlessly through repetitive dream states that provide little clarity.

Power of Intent

May favorite part of this book is how he shows the power of intent and belief on the dreaming world, and then takes it a step further to imply its power in the waking reality (aka, placebo affect, or law of attraction). It definitely inspires me to practice these positive thought processes he describes in the book, both to induce stable lucid dreams, and to co-create my reality. :)

Although there is some overlap with other basic lucid dreaming books (and his other book), this one is solid. It will surely inspire you with lucid dreaming ideas (like healing yourself in dreams).

Wake me up when it's over

I've been reading a lot about L.D. lately and this book was a nightmare. Endless examples of other people's L.D.s but not much substance to the book. There seemed to be a lot of filler. Unfortunately, a lot of the filler was him saying "lucid dream" over and over. Just stick with the books by Laberge or "Field Guide to Lucid Dreaming".

Exceptionally good

This is my third book on Lucid dreaming, and despite it being the shortest it is definitely the best. it give a good all round view of the topic and in my humble opinion should definitely the starting point for anyone wanting to learn about and start practicing lucid dreaming.
Enjoy.

Mind, blown!

While this book does cover the basics for lucid dreaming, it also presents a very esoteric perspective into lucid dreaming, and definitely quenched my thirst for knowledge on the subject. A little gutted that the Past Lives chapter was removed by the editor, but I have hope that it'll be in the next one of Waggoner's books. Can't wait to try out the suggestions!
