So I bought this dream interpretation book thing because I've gotten interested in lucid dreaming lately. I was actually looking for a different book that I did find and buy and got this one as an impulse buy.

I expected something interesting at most, Freudian nonsense at the least.

I got a book of fortune cookies that told me dreams about bathrooms are good luck and disability dreams mean you will overcome your bullshit. Its not interpretations from an even questionable psychological standing point or source's but instead its all about telling the future.

Truly... this might be the dumbest thing I have ever bought. Might have to get a book of baby names next and cross check between the two to find how to defeat the snake man space voodoo Hitler a d the sasquatch unleashed on us. The American Heroes Channel told me all about that shit so it must be true.

Dreams have literally no meaning whatsoever.

I read the title as "Dream Interruptions"...
I'm not sure I would've clicked on it otherwise.

A book as relevant as any other new age book like horoscope. Only moderatly good to make you grin ...

Moderately good is an overstatement. I found the tentacles underwhelming.

How does it interpret dreaming about dreaming?

Nothing, further proving that its not really good for much. Dreaming about dreaming is one of my most frequent dreams. As I've already said this thing isn't even pointless pseudoscience, but rather a 544 page fortune cookie.

Imagine explaining to a cat that her dreams mean:

Cat - Cats in dreams can either symbolize your own inherent creativity, power, and sexuality, or upcoming misfortune, bad luck, and all-around chaos.
Angry Cat - Many people believe that cats are a symbol of womanhood and femininity; if you agree, then a dream where a cat goes totally medieval on you could mean that you're having some issues with parts of your life related to womanhood or feminine identity.

I think dreams have some meaning but not in the same sense that most people see it. So much of what we dream about is rooted in the limbic system, so when you combine that with the AIM model (which basically says dreams are based on what we think about during the day) it makes sense that what you dream about reflects stuff in your mind.

For instance, I notice I have significantly fewer nightmares compared to other people, and people I know that have a lot of fears and insecurities tend to have more. Lots of fears and thoughts about fears continue during REM sleep and nightmares are the result. Similarly, when you get into the associations we make between certain feelings and objects it makes sense that what you dream about could be symbolic of something else, assuming you associate those things with each other. Cultural commonalities might also allow us to generalize some of these. I think that's why nightmares of running in slow motion, not being able to scream or having teeth fall out are so common.

Can't remember much of my dream last night other than at some point I opened a door and it was raining outside. When i woke up it was raining IRL.

One of the major issues with this book and dream "interpretations" in general is that since psychology is a school of science it relies on experiments and studies, which is fine for some larger, broader, themes, but dreams are at such an individual level that broad studies are pointless.

I knew this book wasn't going to be good when I bought it, but I did expect a little more than a baby name book (that's the only other thing I've seen in a format like this and the title "12,000 Dream Interpretations" proves it).

I have to disagree with you, as someone who occasionally has visions. I also know people who regularly have dreams which come true.

Bonus points if it's a relationship problem. Try explaining that one to the missus.
