Sigmund Freud, the father of modern Psychology, stunned the world with his work in dream analysis. His surprisingly simple yet powerful conclusions captivated the world's attention and started the exploration of the human mind. Although a scientist by trade, this introductory work by Freud is written for anyone to understand and does not require a background in psychology. This easy to follow volume is not only enlightening, but an entertaining guide that lays the foundation for analyzing dreams. Inside you will learn what causes dreams and how to figure out what they mean. For example, when a young woman falls asleep and slowly looses her grip on consciousness, the unshackled and unrestrained parts of her subconsciousness start peering out of the shadows of her mind. Her carnal desires slowly creep into her weakened state of mind. As she tosses in bed these thoughts start controlling her dreams. Now, alone in her mind, she is at the mercy of the world where her libido manifests itself in both subtle and overt ways. When she wakes up she might forget or ignore what has transpired. By doing so, she will close a valuable window that reveals her true desires. Yet if she explores this facet of her existence, she can arrive at a more intimate understanding of herself.
