It suffers from serious academia-oriented writing with a dash of its time period to make denjett even more stale. Don’t get me wrong, there are some important ideas in here, but it is so not reader friendly. Combine that with how old the material is now and I couldn’t recommend it as a read unless one were doing specific research on the topic and just had to include it for the sake of braisntorms.

This book has some worthy insights, and is good for understanding the popular psych view from the era it was written in, and has some nice insights on the author’s psychological worldview on the nature of dreams, although I wouldn’t recommend it to anybody generally–maybe for some specific academic purposes.
