Author David Jinks has a graduate degree in business, with an emphasis in psychology, and is a 25-year practitioner of lucid dreaming. After his first lucid dream in 1986, which featured an exhilarating, fully conscious "flyover" (no airplane required!) of his hometown in Eastern Washington, David became fascinated by the subject and found himself combing university libraries for information on how to increase the frequency and intensity of lucid dreaming. This book, first published in 1993 and updated in 2011, represents the culmination of literally decades of personal experimentation in the arena of lucid dreaming.
