      What's the best book to read on Lucid Dreaming?

      First, I'll just say hi since I'm new here

      But to the point, I've been looking into Lucid Dreaming for a while now, but only recently have I become serious about doing it. So, are there any books that would help me with learning how to Lucid Dream?

      On a separate note, Dream Recall seems to be a problem for me at the moment. I tried keeping a Dream Journal a few months back, but I still struggled to remember anything after a few weeks. Are there any useful tips to make it easier?

      Thanks guys!

      Hi
      Maybe reading some book could push you a bit? It works for me.
      I read these and both are great:

      LaBerge & Rheingold: Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming
      and
      Waggoner: Lucid Dreaming - Gateway to the Inner self

      There are many, many books on the subject, but the one book that is always mentioned and HIGHLY recommended is:

      Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge.

      It is one of the most comprehensive books on lucid dreaming, sometimes jokingly referred to as the lucid dreaming Bible. If you want to start anywhere, start with that particular book. What I like about the book is that it approaches the topic of lucid dreaming from a scientific viewpoint, but not in a boring fashion. The book is centered around teaching you, the reader. And the teacher is a great one. In fact, the author of the book used to be (or still is, don't know for certain) a professor at Stanford University who did much groundbreaking research into lucid dreaming. He's basically the inventor of the MILD and WILD techniques in their most basic forms and many techniques that have been invented since use those as their basics.

      The book features many exercises on improving dream recall, performing reality checks, relaxing yourself, improving visualization, willpower. Not only does it teach you about dreaming, but it also goes on to provide the reader with ways to use lucid dreaming to improve one's waking life.

      When I saw that there was already a few answers to your question, I said to myself "I wonder how many of those are going to recommend LaBerge's Exploring Lucid Dreaming?" I'm not sure if it's the best book, but it's a good first book. It's clear and well laid out, easy to read. It's also been very influential. I bet it, or something else by LaBerge, is the No. 1 bestseller in the lucid dreaming category. It's probably worth reading from cover to cover right at the beginning, but be aware that you don't have to apply everything straight away. For example, you could easily skip the chapter on WILD, unless for some reason you have a particular reason to read it.

      Regarding journaling, I posted a question here about Keeping a journal when you don't recall your dreams, and got lots of good ideas and replies. Keep a journal, and if you don't recall dreams, then write a bit about why you'd like to recall them. Write a bit about any thoughts in your head when you wake up. Write a bit about a book about dreaming that you've been reading. Just keep it active.

      After a few weeks, I was just beginning to get little dream fragments. It's about six weeks now, and I'm recalling a dream almost every night, unless I'm traveling and not paying attention, at the beach for a weekend or something. And my dreams are getting longer and more interesting. I'm pretty sure that everyone that persists with journaling will be able to regularly recall some dreams or dream fragments, within a month or two -- probably much shorter. But stick to it during the early stages, when it's easiest to give up discouraged.

      Here's a link to my post:
