From the Author

HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON…

How did you become interested in sleep?

I have always been fascinated by the complexity of brain function and chose neurology as my primary medical specialty so that I could focus my interest on the brain and nervous system. Although we have mapped the human genome and have come to understand and treat many neurological diseases, there are simple, basic, unanswered questions about sleep. Scientists have only begun to tackle the mysteries of sleep and its rejuvenating properties and I am excited and challenged by the opportunity to be involved in this new frontier of discovery.

Do you fall asleep easily or are you a closet insomniac?

No, I am not a closet insomniac but I do need to pay careful attention to my own sleep hygiene – particularly allocating enough time for sleep. I really need 7 ½ hours in order to feel good and function optimally and have to keep a tight reign on my evening activities in order to have the opportunity to get the sleep I need. I am very sympathetic to my adolescent patients who just want to answer one more IM before turning off the computer!

What keeps you up at night?

The first challenge for me in the evening is to let go and concede that I have done all that I can for one day. I find it most disconcerting to take the worries of the day to bed with me—either in my thoughts or my level of body tension so I often enjoy a warm shower and stretching followed by a crossword or Soduko to ease the transition from the stressors of the day to sleep.

Format: Hardcover
I am a retired school teacher with 33 years experience with other people's teenage kids plus my own. This book is a must read for everyone with teenage children. It was a quick and easy read. Other things that I liked were the examples that all parents can relate to, also some suggested ways to help fix your adult sleep problems.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Emsellem brings insight and assistance to both parents and educators in offering 10 effective strategies for improving the function of sleep. It is written in a chatty, enjoyable, easy to read style, and worth reading even if you don't have, or work with teens. As an educator, I was impressed with the role of sleep in the acquisition of learning, and why pulling "all-nighters" just doesn't work well in the process of remembering important information. I was particularly interested in the serious problems that can accompany lack of sleep especially in relationship to obesity, ADD and depression. I liked that she brought in research-based practices to validate what she was saying, and supplied valuable resources. All in all, it was the most informative book I've read on the subject of sleep lately.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent, informative and life changing. A must read for every parent, teacher, school administrator, athletics coach and if they could only stay awake long enough, every teen in America. In this eye opening (pun intended) account on sleep, or lack thereof, Helene Emsellem carefully and clearly explains why our children need more sleep, why they are not getting it and how to change the cycle. Dr Emsellem dispels myths along the way and backs her assertions with scientific research. Very informative and helpful text.
