I have already been practicing some of the sleep techniques for several years, and I can say that most of the ones I have tried work a lot of the time.

Dr. Marks contacted me and asked if I would review her book. I usually decline author requests but her book sounded so interesting that I agreed to take a look at it, and am I ever glad I did. As a chronic insomniac, Dr. Marks' book has given me personally a lot to work with to improve my own sleep. She incorporates eastern and western medicine in her book and the book comes with a 'cheat sheet' of hints to improve sleep hygiene. Dr. Marks is an Atlanta psychiatrist who has a special interest in sleep disorders.

Some of the hints on the cheat sheet include no caffeine or cigarettes six hours before sleep, no alcohol 4 hours before sleep, no exercise 2 hours before sleep, no more fluids or work one hour before sleep and then start to wind down. Thirty minutes before sleep, read, listen to music, meditate, or do progressive relaxation. At bedtime, keep your thermostat between 68-74 degrees, use a fan to feel cool, keep lights out including LED's and turn off the TV. The cheat sheet discusses natural remedies for sleep, how to do progressive muscle relaxation, what to do about anxious thoughts that keep you from sleeping and what to do if it takes you more than thirty minutes to fall asleep. The price of the book is worth it for the cheat sheet alone. As a psychotherapist, I often treated sleep-deprived clients and this would be a wonderful hand-out for professionals to use.

The book is divided into two helpful sections. The first is 'Understanding Sleep'. This section contains chapters on how much sleep is required, sleep architecture, dreaming circadian cycle and sleep inertia. The second chapter is entitled 'What Happens If I Don't Sleep'.

Format: Paperback
Tracey Marks, MD practices psychiatry and psychotherapy in Atlanta and has compiled one of the most complete studies of Sleep - the science and the practical information about this area of activity in which we spend a great deal of lives. Why someone hasn't thought of presenting this topic as a patient's guide to improving our quality of life until this volume is a puzzle, but here is one of the most accurately informative surveys of that part of our lives that is of concern to all of us as we try to adapt to how we manage our daily health - mental and physical - Sleep!

Dr. Marks divides her book into two sections - Understanding Sleep and Sleep Solutions. Part one offers terrific information to the little aspects of the concept of sleep that few understand or appreciate: a physiologic evaluation of just exactly what sleep is and how it is part of our Circadian rhythm that determines how we respond and feel during our waking hours. She addresses 'What happens is I don't sleep?' (eg, weight gain, diabetes, altered mental and physical function, even shortening our life span); 'Why can't I sleep?' (sleep disorders both physical and psychiatric, the effects of drugs, aging, disrupted lifestyle, and 'Sleep Evaluations - Who needs one? (many of these tests we've never heard of!).

Part Two - Sleep Solutions - is a thorough examination of sleep medications - which ones work and how and their side effects, Behavioral Therapy - for this reader the most fascinating and useful section in the book as it is holistic in nature, Cognitive Therapy - intrusive problem solving and inaccurate assumptions that keep us awake, Bright-Light Therapy, and Sleep Disorders in Children - what they are and how to manage them.

Format: Paperback
The title of Dr. Tracey Marks' book is "Master Your Sleep - Proven Methods Simplified". As one with a sleep disorder (Alpha intrusion disorder because of pain) sleep is something that is elusive to me. I've had the good fortune of being able to work with a sleep specialist to discover my sleep patterns, the problems with them and ways to fix them. I've read numerous books on the topic and researched the topic in depth. Sleep is so often overlooked as the root for so many different physical and psychological problems. With the information provided in Dr. Marks book, any reader can better understand the role of sleep, the stages of sleep, sleep disorders and methods that work from medication to cognitive and behavioral therapies.

The book is very accessible and is written for all levels. I would recommend it as a first line of defense for anyone who wakes up unrefreshed and tired or anyone who KNOWS that they have sleep difficulties but is not sure where to turn.

This book is not extremely academic. In other words, if you are into the science of sleep you may want to try a different type of book. But if you have a desire to understand the basics of sleep, need some good tools in your toolbox to harness better sleep ... this is a great book for you.

Pick it up and start understanding and working on things right away. "Master Your Sleep" is meant to be put into action and is chock full of great advice.

Having problems with your Zzzzzz's and need some good, hands-on help? Look no further, this is your book.
