His new book Ask the Dream Doctor offers a powerful means of identifying the most common meanings, themes, and insights in the endlessly wondrous world of dreaming. —Kelly Bulkeley, Ph.D., President, Association for the Study of Dreams, author of Transforming Dreams, and Visions of the Night
With thanks to Charles McPhee’s winning personality and humor, Ask the Dream Doctor is as entertaining and fun to read as it is enlightening. Even if you do not find your exact dream among those included, by reading this book you will learn something valuable about yourself. —Cynthia Richmond, author of Dream Power, How to use Your Night Dreams to Change Your Life
Charles McPhee’s book provides an excellent addition to the new dream symbol approach which carefully avoids assigning a single meaning to a dream image, while skillfully showing how a dream can function as a metaphor in guiding one’s life. I enjoyed the inclusion of real dreams, the tips for interpretation, and the thoughtful associations to common dreams. —Richard Wilkerson, Editor, Electric Dreams
