Having written that, I must say I do appreciate his approach to overcoming sleeplessness. And his speaking style is a real bonus.
New research is finding that not getting enough sleep causes people to be irritable, make more mistakes, and even tends to shorten lives. Get this CD set if you have trouble sleeping. It really could help if you give it an honest try. It helped me.
I expected it to be a book. When I saw that it was an audio book, I decided to try it anyway. I expected this to be the audio version of a book about beating insomnia. I really didn't know what to expect. The first CD is a bit of an introduction to some statistics about sleeplessness, and a light-weight overview of the reasons for insomnia. I got through it quickly.
The second CD is the main event. It contains meditations and exercises. While I think this might work well for someone else, just listening to it while working in the kitchen, I decided that I probably would not be able to fall asleep while listening to the guided meditations and exercises. But, I decided, I could give those same suggestions to myself with better effect.
Perhaps others would like to hear a voice guiding and reminding them what to do. They will probably love this audio book.
As a result of listening to the first CD, I decided to give melatonin a try. I went online and found a recent article that confirmed Dr. Weil's advice about the best dosage -- 0.3 mg, NOT the 3 mg or more available in the pharmacies. That is the one good nugget I took away from the time I spent with this audio book.
I will also try some of the breathing exercises. Being sleep deprived took away my mental discipline. I'm getting enough back to be able to actually use some of the advice in the audio book.
