Some of the advice given in this book may be things you have heard all your life.

Included in this book are ways to get to sleep (interestingly, when it comes to recommended foods for sleep virtually ALL of them are high-carb--IMAGINE THAT!).

I of course found that it started making a difference in her sleep patterns and overall moods.

I got this book for my girlfriend on a whim, she always had trouble sleeping...

Little did I know that it would actually work! She found it's advice cleverly written and useful. I of course found that it started making a difference in her sleep patterns and overall moods. Even better - I read the book, and now I know how to get myself prepared to be in sleep mode.

Hidden within its chapters I found some surprisingly useful nuggets of information. If you have ever have trouble sleeping - this is the book for you. Other books don't have this kind of information all in one place.

Worth every penny.

This book is very straightforward and easy-to-use. I don't have time to read a long, drawn-out text, but a friend recommended this book because it had helped her so much. At first, I just flipped to the chapters I thought would help me most, but now I've read the whole thing!
Who knew that just checking your e-mail before going to bed can delay sleep modes in the brain by 3 HOURS! No wonder I wasn't sleeping well.
This book is directed mostly at women, but there are great, simple, tips in here for everyone on getting to sleep faster and staying asleep.

Even if its title may be a bit of an exaggeration, this book certainly offers a wealth of highly usable information, advice, and tips on how to sleep to be sane. With their highly entertaining and engaging style, the authors nicely tuck the forefront of sleep research into the covers of the book. Although the book's well-crafted and clever writing won't put you to sleep, the easy-to-implement sleep tips found within likely will. Getting a good night's sleep is no longer but a dream!

Finally I found a book that had suggestions for women beyond the obvious to help me begin to sleep better like getting off the computer at least an hour before bed to destress from work and keeping a strict sleep schedule--even on the weekends when I could sleep late. Plus there are great suggestions for beating jetlag and how to reset your internal clock--I am willing to give it a try!
