“Sleep is one of the few universals of life, and yet we still know little about it. In particular, the reasons we don’t sleep can be as mystifying as the reasons we do. The Insomnia Workbook is a comprehensive, scholarly, and clearly written review of what we know about the architecture of sleep, how insomnia disrupts that architecture, and what can be done to rebuild a healthy sleep pattern.”
—Robert McGrath, Ph.D., director of the Ph.D. program in clinical psychology and director of the MS Program in clinical psychopharmacology at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, NJ
From the Publisher
In The Insomnia Workbook, readers struggling with insomnia learn treatment techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help them fall asleep, be more productive during waking hours, and improve their overall health.

Recommend reading it and also understanding more about effect of sleeping meds.
As a clinical psychologist, I consider Dr. Silberman's "The Insomnia Workbook," my automatic go-to, to assist patients in understanding and overcoming sleep difficulties. This book has helped many of them regain restful, healthful sleep, often avoiding the use of sleep meds altogether, or much better able to decrease and/or wean off altogether, with the help of their physician. In simple but comprehensive language, Dr. Silberman walks you through the process of understanding WHAT sleep difficulties you may have (there are many... not just garden variety "insomnia"), figuring out your best habits and practices, empowering you with tools and techniques to increase the quality and consistency of your sleep patterns, address worries and concerns that may impact restful sleep, and guide you toward healthy lifestyle changes in your waking life that dramatically improve the overall quality of your days. What I find vital in her approach is that it is more than the culmination of a bunch of tools and techniques (many of which you might have heard here or there as non-integrated "sleep tips"). It is a method that coordinates your efforts, thereby giving it that much more power... and definitely rivaling the effectiveness of the "quick fix magic pill" that comes with much more than you bargain for!
If sleep is a concern for you, if you want to find the most healthful and natural way to restore what your body already knows how to do, this is your guide.
