The Man Who Dreamed Tomorrow

The Life of J W Dunne

ByGuy Inchbald

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Soldier, pioneer aviator, dry fly fisherman, prophetic dreamer and philosopher, JW Dunne was an extraordinary and fascinating character. Famous from 1910 until the postwar era, his seminal work on precognitive dreams became a bestseller. Many of his achievements have been lost to history, yet their stories form an astonishing tapestry of interweaving threads which changed much of the world around us today. He befriended greats such as HG Wells, lived much of his life in a moated castle, wrote to Hitler to try and prevent a Second World War, contemplated founding a new religion. This detailed, fascinating and highly readable account of his life is the first of its kind, made possible only by the Science Museum's recent acquisition of his vast professional archive. A comprehensive bibliography and index round it off for the serious historian.
