Acknowledgments


We cannot say how much we owe to our predecessors; with­out the efforts of countless others, this work could not have been accomplished. Thanks to them all, known and un­known.

We especially wish to thank all the people who wrote to us about their experiences with lucid dreaming, especially those whose reports we used. It would have been impossible to obtain permissions from everyone, so we have used initials for attributions rather than full names.

Thanks also to Joanne Blokker, Charles Brandon, the Fetzer Institute, Dr. Oscar Janiger, the Monteverde Foun-dation, and Jonathan Parker of the Institute for Human De-velopment for financial and other support which made this book possible. Drs. William Dement and Phil Zimbardo provided professional encouragement. Our agent, John Brockman, earned his percentage many times over. Laurie Cook, Dorothy LaBerge, Michael LaPointe, K. Romana Machado, and Judith Rheingold all read drafts of the book and made valuable suggestions. Cheryl Woodruff’s perspi­cacious editing did much to make the book more human and intelligible.

Mushkil Gusha made the usual contribution. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge that Lynne Levitan deserves to be a coauthor for all the work she put into the book.
