Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Sleep problems are prevalent among Americans of all ages, affecting from 20 to 30 percent of the population. Difficulties in falling asleep at night or with inappropriate sleepiness during the day are especially troubling to the elderly and can result from lack of physical activity, side effects of medication, or complex physical disorders such as sleep apnea or narcolepsy. Dr. Hartmann, author of several other books on sleep including The Nightmare ( LJ 5/1/85), has done extensive research on sleep and sleep disorders. Here he provides clear explanations of the processes that control sleep and differentiates between sleep problems that can be self-treated and those that require medical attention. Includes lists of sleep specialists and sleep centers. Karen McNally Bensing, Metro General Hospital, Cleveland
