Sleep is the subject of intense scientific debate among biologists and neuroscientists. Why must we spend about one-third of our lives asleep? What exactly is sleep? Why does a lack of sleep impair our cognitive abilities and leave us vulnerable to a host of medical issues ranging from obesity to reduced resistance to infectious disease?
"This is what to listen to BEFORE you see a doctor!"
The Interpretation of Dreams is the book that Sigmund Freud considered his most important and that forever changed the way we think about our dreams. Here, Freud explained his discoveries about why we dream, what we dream, and what our dreams mean. In this groundbreaking work, Freud further demonstrated that it is in the treatment of abnormal mental states that dream analysis is the most valuable. He claimed that dreams not only reveal to us the cryptic mechanisms of phobias, obsessions, and delusions but also are the most potent weapon in the healing of them.
"Audio helps Reinforce Freud"
In 1899 Freud wrote a revolutionary work in the new field of Psychoanalysis called, The Interpretation of Dreams. The book was so full of technical details and involved case studies, however, that ordinary people had great difficulty understanding it. Twenty-one years later, he published this shorter version.
As with all other areas of success in life, attracting the woman of your dreams is not something you can assume you are just going to stumble upon one day. Attraction isn’t a random occurrence, and in the same way you wouldn’t set out to build a house with no plans… hoping fate will deliver your soulmate is unproductive waste of time and energy. One of the biggest mistakes men make is assuming that women think and feel the same way that they do.
"its good. really good"
What are the most common dreams and why do we have them? What does a dream about death mean? What do dreams of swimming, failing, or flying symbolize?

"A decent aid to Jungian study"
One cannot enter into a study of psychology without coming across the name of Sigmund Freud. Even in popular culture, his name stands in common with others like Albert Einstein and Karl Marx. There are downsides to this level of popularity. One often encounters the criticisms of Freud's work before ever reading his texts. The works of Sigmund Freud are the foundation of modern psychology.
Such Stuff as Dreams: The Psychology of Fiction explores how fiction works in the brains and imagination of both readers and writers.
In Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep?, neuroscientists and zombie enthusiasts Timothy Verstynen and Bradley Voytek apply their neuro-know-how to dissect the puzzle of what has happened to the zombie brain to make the undead act differently than their human prey. Combining tongue-in-cheek analysis with modern neuroscientific principles, Verstynen and Voytek show how zombism can be understood in terms of current knowledge regarding how the brain works.
"Fun and informative; brilliant reading"
This book evaluates the question: Do repressed emotional responses elicit visions that cause what we refer to as dreams? This question is important because dreams have lost their significance in modern psychological therapy. There are a plethora of theories on the functionality of dreams. This book makes an original contribution by integrating different perspectives on dreams. In my theory of dreams, I assert that biological brain function and psychical functions are interdependent.

Each time someone dreams, their subconscious is sending messages to their conscious mind. When understood, these messages offer a remarkable insight into the dreamer's personality, their half-buried fears and hidden impulses. Unfortunately, since they come disguised in symbols not easily recognizable, dream messages are most often lost. This audiobook, written by a professor of psychology after years of intensive case study, offers a lucid explanation of the meanings behind dream symbols.
Sigmund Freud was an Austrian scientist who founded the theory of psychoanalysis. The Interpretation of Dreams was first published in 1900, and since then it has been a best seller. According to Freud, a dream is a wish fulfillment. With many controversial desires, a person - often without knowing it - pushes them into the unconscious. Those desires then reveal themselves in dreams and still "govern" behaviour and health.

"Clear, basic Freud, well read"
In 1877, a young Freud met an established physician named Josef Breuer and they began a collaboration that would lead to the publication of the classic work, Studies on Hysteria. But by the time it released, Freud was moving to establish himself as a major figure in the treatment of mentally ill patients, and would let no one stand in his way. He consequently minimized Breuer's contributions, betraying his former mentor and benefactor.
"Author clearly has a father issue with Freud"
You've probably seen it before: a human brain dramatically lit from the side, the camera circling it like a helicopter shot of Stonehenge, and a modulated baritone voice exalting the brain's elegant design in reverent tones... to which this book says: Pure nonsense.
"Best general-public Brain Science book to date"
