"Growing numbers of people are fascinated by the dream world. From psychological scholars and analysts to spontaneous groups and cults, the dream has a compelling voice. I make the point in this book that our dreams are our most creative inner source of wisdom and hope. The criterion for selection is simply that each one illustrates a common human life experience that all readers have had or are likely to have." -- From the Introduction by the Author

He has been a National Research Council fellow in the medical sciences at Johns Hopkins, a fellow in internal medicine and neuropsychiatry at the Mayo Clinic, and later a consultant in psychiatry there.
