Book Description
A breakthrough approach for a good night's sleep--with no tears There are two schools of thought for encouraging babies to sleep through the night: the hotly debated Ferber technique of letting the baby "cry it out," or the grin-and-bear-it solution of getting up from dusk to dawn as often as necessary.

Book Description
Getting a young child to go to sleep and stay asleep is one of the most challenging aspects of parenting. Yet many parents resign themselves to enduring years of exhaustion.

No More Sleepless Nights
Peter Hauri

Jan 1996
(Paperback) - Revised Ed.
·
 
From Library Journal
Although the catchy title may mislead, this is a serious encyclopedia of sleep disorders. Based on sleep disorder studies from the Mayo Clinic's insomnia program, of which Hauri is director, this book goes into precise detail on the many kinds of insomnia, incorporating the complete range of research and treatment in easy and accessible language. The core of the program is record keeping, and the book discusses the sleep and day logs that patients often must keep for weeks before the particular cause for the sleep disorder is discovered. For consumer health collections, this is the best book this reviewer has seen on insomnia. Highly recommended.- Evelyn L. Mott, Palm Beach Cty.

January 2006
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In Healing Night, clinical psychologist Rubin R. Naiman explores sleeping, dreaming, and awakening, going far beyond the science of sleep medicine to reflect on what he believes is the profoundly spiritual nature of night consciousness. Naiman reveals how the erosion of night by artificial light and the devaluation of sleep and dreaming have led to an epidemic of sleep disorders and consequent days of chronically dazed waking consciousness. Drawing on both clinical experience and personal explorations, Naiman offers a fresh look at sleep and dreams, and provides alternative healing practices for sleep disturbances. Moreover, he challenges us to acknowledge our spiritual night blindness and embrace the sacredness of night.

The Promise of Sleep
William C. Dement

Jan 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
"We are a sleep-sick society," says William C. Dement, M.D., Ph.D. According to Dr. Dement, "sleep science" has yielded a great deal of scientific knowledge about sleep--yet the general public, and even doctors, aren't aware of it. Sleep disorders are routinely misdiagnosed or ignored, sometimes resulting in medical tragedy and death, frequently leading to chronic exhaustion. In The Promise of Sleep, Dr. Dement aims to remedy that by making the latest sleep information accessible to health professionals and lay readers. He describes the sleep cycle and gives a short history of sleep research. Then he dives into clear and detailed explanations of concepts and conditions we've all heard about, but that few of us understand: sleep debt, biological clock, circadian rhythm, insomnia, sleep apnea, narcolepsy. He discusses why we...

Killer Dreams

From Publishers Weekly
Bestseller Johansen (On the Run), in her latest thriller full of heavy-breathing romance, turns to mind-control of the Manchurian candidate variety, a state induced by the chemical REM-4 and mysterious sleep-manipulation methods guaranteed to turn regular folk into killer zombies. It promises to be a lucrative technology, as one of the heroes in the novel predicts: "Mind control is just too tempting not to attract the scumbags of the world." The head scumbag is Robert Sanborne of Sanborne Pharmaceuticals, whose goal is to perfect the REM-4 program so he can sell it to the world's evildoers. The heroine, Sophie Dunston, a leading sleep researcher and the original inventor of REM-4, falls hard for Matt Royd, a former zombie who has come to his senses and is trying to kill Sanborne. Royd and Sophie, forced by...


Sleep to Save Your Life

From Publishers Weekly
In this thorough rundown of various sleep disorders and their cures and causes, Lombardo relies on anecdotes, research and his clinical experiences to describe the misconceptions about and effects of poor sleep habits and sleep disorders, though the sterile writing may be enough to cure some readers' mild insomnia. Lombardo, an associate professor of clinical medicine at Weill Medical College of Cornell Medical Center, describes at length various sleep disorders, which now number over 70, and concludes many people plagued by poor sleep don't realize they may be suffering from breathing disorders, including snoring and sleep apnea-a suffocating breathing disorder linked to high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. He also details narcolepsy and movement disorders, such as Restless Legs Syndrome. Noting that...

From The New England Journal of Medicine, December 28, 2000
Principles and Practice of Sleep Medicine encompasses the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders resulting from disruptions of the sleep-wake cycle and circadian rhythm. This is a relatively new area for medical practice. Some 50 years ago, rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep was discovered by Eugene Aserinsky and Nathaniel Kleitman at the University of Chicago, and 25 years ago the first clinical center for sleep disorders in the United States was established in the department of psychiatry at Stanford University. Now, the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, the restless-legs syndrome, and narcolepsy are recognized as common diseases requiring clinical resources and attention. Disorders such as insomnia (abnormal initiation and maintenance of sleep) or parasomnias...
