ummm.........Freud was not the most mentally balanced men in psychology, so I wouldn't take everything he says seriously.

I ahve read a little bit about him and only know about his drug isssues,so are saying that this man really wasnt that smart???Just curious,because his book is really hard to read

smart and intelligent are two diferent things. Are you aware that he had sexual fantasies about his mother????? His psychological analysis is somewhat updated from what psychologists today think. He's the one that came up with the Oeudipus complex. He says that each child is attracted, sexually, to the parent of the opposite sex, which is his explanation why girls prefer their dads and boys their moms. To me he doesn't sound like a smart man, but intelligent nontheless to be so famous with the publishing of his ideas. However, I think his unusual behaviour is what made his ideas heard.
Just because a book uses big words and looks hard to read it doesn't mean the contents presented is right. Especially with dreams. And especially coming from Sigmund Freud for that matter lol

Freud is just one of many theorists - do you HAVE to read him? he had very sexist views, as one criticism. I read him because I had to , not out of choice, lol (Still, it is a good idea to know the basics of Freud so you can compare them with other idea. And his works are considered classic. Tho I noted once as a child that The Great Books - of which my folks had a set - contained not one book written by a woman!!!)

NO I dont have to,wanted to,I have been having very very vivid weird dreams and heard about this book,but it is way to hard to read,know of any other good dream books

well dream symbolism is different for many people. If you dream of your dad i'm pretty sure Freud's books will say you fantasize about your dad :yuck:
dreams are often triggered by your current life events or things that have been bothering you. Don't be surprised if they're not literally displayed in your dreams.
for example you could be having troubles with your parents and you could be having many pregnancy dreams or childhood dreams.
Or if you're having a hard time you could be having dreams of positive events as your subconscious is trying to find relief when in sleep mode.
