Dr. Rosenberg is the Medical Director of the Sleep Disorders Center in Prescott, Arizona and is board certified in sleep medicine, pulmonary medicine, and internal medicine. He writes a popular newspaper column about sleep disorders and has been an expert contributor to several magazines and TV shows. So, he has the creds.
The book is very well laid out and easy to read. Like most readers (I presume) I found myself skipping around and reading whatever interested me. In the end I read the entire book. Dr. Rosenberg has accomplished the delicate hat trick that few authors can accomplish…he has presented material that is often rather technical, but made it very easy to read for the lay person.
The book begins with a Sleep Disorder Checklist. The results of this brief test becomes your baseline for understanding and acting upon the information presented in the book.
Part One is, naturally, an introduction to sleep and its value. Dr. Rosenberg points out how the quality of sleep affects nearly every aspect of your life…from your ability to think to emotional balance to health. Yet 30% of Americans get less than six hours of sleep a night (seven to nine hours is recommended), according to the National Sleep Foundation.
Lack of sleep can have very serious consequences. You are 48% more likely to develop or die from heart disease, 15% more likely to develop or die from a stroke, and sleep deprivation can seriously compromise your immune system.Read more ›
1. It gave an informative, concise pow-wow on how to get quality sleep as well how to identify various sleep disorders.
2. It was clearly written by a professional.
Even if it's stuff you've heard before like "don't use electronics before bed, no stimulants in the bedroom, etc." It's still good to heard them as repetitive reinforcement is generally more helpful than hearing something once. I also trust books better when they're written by an expert in the field rather than a writer who has only spent time learning the material enough to write about it. That being said, the good Doc gets repetitive to a fault. There are FAQs at the end of each section and every answer is pretty much the standard, doctor answer. "I suggest you see a sleep therapist," or, "You need good sleep hygiene, I suggest trying A,B, and C" A,B, and C are the same for every problem and you could probably skip FAQ.
That being said, it earned a spot on my shelf. Definitely informative and interesting to all non-sleep specialists out there. If you want to learn how to get better sleep or whether you should see someone about your husband's snoring, I most definitely recommend this book!
I learned more about sleep than from this book than I've learned from two sleep studies and innumerable sleep related conversations with various doctors. Within a week I am sleeping better and am recommitted to using my CPAP.
With the exception of some rather simplistic examples of dialogue between doctor and patient, this book is well written and explains medical issues clearly. In addition to general information about the science of sleep, there were explanations for related phenomena such as frequent awakening to urinate, the impact of 'blue' light on the brain, and the damage done to the heart due to lack of sleep.

far too superficial in content. You probably already read most of such info in the local newspaper, over time. If you want new or more rich content, look elsewhere.Published 1 day ago by Charles Stanfield
