Yogagrrl, if you want a book about lucid dreaming that is all about technique - and you can download it and read it for free - Michael Raduga's "The Phase: A Practical Guidebook" is the one: http://obe4u.com/files/the_phase.pdf
It is all about techniques! From entering the phase state (LD/OBE) to deepening, managing, and maintaining it. It even includes examples of "phase experiences" by the author and other practitioners. (Look out for Arlindo on page 111, that's me!)
The book even advises you to have interesting plans of action that will prevent hesitation during lucid dreaming. It also teaches you to effectively use it to get information from dream characters, problem solve, fulfil fantasies, practice/learn real life skills, self-heal etc.
Because I work with Raduga as the head of the Phase Managing Department at the OOBE Research Center, I have also taken part in statistical research. Here's a piece of extra information on the pinched-nose method: http://research.obe4u.com/pinched-nose-reality-check-when-aware-of-phase/
Another book I recommend, which not only talks about techniques but also the psychological side of lucid dreaming, and its dynamics (the theory is brilliant really), is Stephen LaBerge's "Exploring The World of Lucid Dreaming."
Anyway, for what you want, those are my recommendations. Good luck!
Highlander wrote:I agree. I'm currently finishing Waggoner's book. It's great.
Stephen Laberge's books are also highly recomended.
I secondly agree! Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self is the best book on lucid dreaming hands down.
You should seriously consider getting Robert Waggoners book, I read it, and I loved every page!! I couldn't even put it down
I also highly recomend Charlie Morleys "Dreams of Awakening", Rebecca wrote a review on it, and I'm reading it now. I'm almost done with it, and it's got a huge section dedicated to techniques, and more!
But overall, Robert Waggongers Gateway to the Inner Self is the best book for you in my opinion. I believe it covers a wide array of techniques as well as much more. It's a truly a great read, and the best book written on lucid dreaming period in my opinion.
