Compact, concise, approachable, and effective work that will help you address the thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors (i.e. cognitive behavioral factors) that may be preventing you from consistently producing high quality, drug-free sleep. Personally, I used this book as a companion and reference alongside visits with a therapist for cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I). CBT-I has great evidence behind it and may be the gold standard for treating insomnia *without* drugs. Sure, it may be a bit more work than popping a pill, but who wants to be on unnecessary medications when you could be addressing the *root causes* of your sleeplessness? My opinion is this book paired with CBT-I is a winning combination for addressing insomnia, and I highly recommend it. Good luck and sweet dreams!

This is a very good resource for cognitive behavioural interventions for insomnia. The small format makes it seem more approachable, and the essential elements to address sleep problems are included in a highly readable form. I've recommended it several times already.

I highly recommend this book. I found that it confirmed what I had discovered through my own experience, that relaxation exercises and meditation help with insomnia, as well as offering some helpful information that I hadn't heard before such as how to deal with anxiety about not sleeping as well as explaining the mechanics of sleep so you better understand the approach to treating insomnia.

I feel confident that this book has given me the tools I need to gradually improve my sleep after years of insomnia. Thank-you to the authors!
