Self-help author McKenna (I Can Make You Thin) presents a number of easy-to-follow suggestions for insomniacs in this handy guide to getting a better night's sleep. While some advice is fairly self-evident (no caffeine after 2 p.m., decreasing alcohol consumption), ideas on topics like pre-sleep anxiety will surprise many chronic bed-tossers who don't realize the extent to which the sleepless cycle is self-perpetuating. Though heavy on self-help jargon, McKenna's sound ideas are clear, easy to read, and don't get bogged down in unnecessary explanation, though he does helpfully explore some of insomnia's root causes. A bundled CD also offers assistance with self-hypnosis and deeper sleep.
