Reseña del editor
Psychologists and philosophers have long grappled with the mysteries of dreaming, and now-thanks largely to recent innovations in brain imaging -neuroscientists are starting to join the conversation. In this ground-breaking book, award-winning journalist Andrea Rock traces the brief but fascinating history of this emerging field. She then takes us into modern sleep labs across the country, asking the questions that intrigue us all: Why do we remember only a fraction of our dreams? Why are dreams usually accompanied by intense emotions? Can dreams truly spark creative thought or help solve problems? Are the universal dream interpretations of Freud and Jung valid? Accessible and engaging, The Mind at Night shines a bright light on our nocturnal journeys and tells us what the sleeping mind reveals about our waking hours.Ver Descripción del producto

Overall, Rock did an excellent job of maintaining the balance between textbook and interpretation book. That being said, there were definitely some highs and lows to Rock’s writing. The most useful tool employed was that of fascinating examples. Whether they were shocking facts, crazy statistics, interesting experiments, or compelling stories, Rock was able to maintain interest among the ongoing, length scientific terms. However, though I appreciated the wide variety of examples, some tended to sound weak, cliche, and predictable. Some were so cliche that it was hard to believe they were true, while others were so overused that they became monotonous. Regardless of those minor missteps, Rock successfully constructed a book that stays true to its title, providing clear and concise answers as to how and why we dream. After reading Rock’s work, I was able to get a better understanding of dreams as they relate to brain functions, sleep disorders, mental health, the use of memory, lucid dreaming, and the history of scientific discovery. I highly recommend this easily understandable book to anyone with a moderate interest in the mind and conscience that is searching for more than just a science textbook or dream interpretation book.
