Through this great book, I was relieved to find that I wasn't alone when it comes to insomnia. Over 30% of the American population suffers from insomnia-related symptoms, who knew? While reading, I was able to concisely target my symptoms and identify the type of insomnia I suffered with, and eventually find a multitude of ways to cure it. Whether you believe in medicine, lean towards holistic treatment, or seek practical solutions, this book explains how to eliminate insomnia on a variety of levels so you can get back to the positives in your life. It even goes into the science and psychology behind sleeplessness, exploring the circadian rhythm and the root causes of insomnia-whether external or within the networks of our mind. After finishing this read, I came out twice as knowledgeable towards my insomnia-related illness, and I now sleep like a rock. A fantastic book! I'd recommend it to anyone who suffers with sleeplessness like I did.

Sleep sometimes seems like a necessary evil, while other times it seems like a little bit of heaven on Earth. When we are younger, unless we have a sleep disorder, the power of sleep is taken for granted. However, even in the absence of a sleep disorder, age has a funny way of making you respect the power of sleep. John Chatham, in Insomnia, informs us that sleep disorders affect 20% of the population and that insomnia will strike nearly all of us at some point in our lives.

The book details many of the causes and types of insomnia and explains them with clarity and brevity, making it easy to understand and to determine if one of these disorders is causing your insomnia. For me, the section on Sleep Anxiety was the most important as I sometimes become anxious when it it bedtime. As I have moved past 50, I have noticed that my sleep is not as deep as it used to be, and that I occasionally have trouble getting to sleep and often wake before I need to. There are many beneficial suggestions and techniques that may help achieve a deeper, longer, and more restful sleep, even for those of us who are quickly passing through middle age!

In Insomnia, Mr Chatham uses clear and concise language to explore the science and importance of sleep while also clearly describing effective methods to improve the quality of sleep. It is a must read for anyone who has had more than a few bouts of insomnia.

This was a very informative book that helped me understand all the different aspects of sleep. I especially made note of the foods to avoid as well as the ones that may aid in helping me fall asleep. It gave me many different ideas to try as well as information to help me discern what my body needs. Thanks for an excellent overview on insomnia, as well as the suggestions on where to go for more information! Highly Recommend!
