After months of poor sleep I was at my wits end. I have always been able to fall asleep but less good at staying asleep throughout the night. The book contains sensible tips and some ideas which I was already doing and some new ones which I adopted. None were extreme or silly. But its the CD which makes this a 5* purchase for me. I listen to it while I fall asleep and amazingly it seems to let me go into a deeper, better quality of sleep. If I do wake during the night (much less often now) I can put back on the CD to help me drift off again. Its very comforting and relaxing and I would recommend giving it a try.

I read the book which made it easy for me pinpoint the reason for my lack of sleep. I then downloaded the disc onto an MP3 player so that I could listen in bed without disturbing my husband. I found it quite disconcerting at first to hear an unknown, but intimate sounding voice in my ears whilst snuggled up in bed. I think I listened too intently on my first hearing and I was slightly sceptical - but - believe it or not I had a wonderful nights sleep. I listened on four consecutive nights and found that I awoke feeling relaxed rather than stressed. I now listen a couple of times week and although I don't guarantee to have a good nights sleep every night I cannot believe how successful the 'therapy' has been. Still it's not always necessary to understand but just to accept.

Insomniacs rejoice. For years I would fail to fall to sleep or have broken sleep. This book and CD that helps you sleep. I read the book and used the CD as instructed. My sleep improved immediately. After 2 weeks I able to go to bed and fall to sleep within minutes. On waking I felt fine instead of the usual lousy feeling. Granted some of Paul's ideas are simple. I had tried similar techniques without success. This book and CD is well structured and has useful shortcuts.

I Can Make You Sleep (Book and CD)
I have found this book and accompanying CD very useful. It is well written and offers very good explanations about sleep and its necessity for healthy living. The CD is quietly sensitive and is a useful aid to making you feel relaxed and ready to close your eyes and go to sleep. I am pleased, and very glad, I have this book and CD available to me. I hope other people who have had problems with sleep will benefit from the experience if they acquire this sleeping aid. I can recommend it.

90 of 95 people found the following review helpful By Sherlock on 8 Jan 2009
Format: Paperback
I had the original 'Sleep Like A Log' audio cassette; many of the rules are contained in this new approach, such as:
1 Get up earlier,
2 Go to bed when you're tired,
3 Don't watch tv in bed,
4 Get up if you can't sleep,
5 Don't take naps during the day.
However, there are new tips, like not taking caffeine after 2pm; at first I found this was bringing on headaches, but it just goes to show one can become addicted to something without realising it! You are also advised to not eat 3hrs prior to retiring, in order for the digestive process to settle down.
There are also pragmatic approaches to the things that disturb your sleep, ie, worry, noise, light and temperature.
Paul suggests you sort out your worries during the day, so that intrusive thoughts, whether good or bad, don't disturb you at the 'wrong' time.
I wish I could comment on the content of the hypnosis cd, but I've drifted off before hearing much of it!
I haven't awarded the full 5 stars because there are still occasions when I am woken in the night,but I find the exercises for returning to sleep hard to focus on.
Robert Lumsden wrote in the book 23 Steps to Success and Achievement: The Dynamic Plan That Will Change Your Life; 'sleep comes easiest unsought; cultivate indifference to it'.
After all, if you make a big deal of not sleeping you get, as Paul says, 'more of what you focus on'.

Format: Paperback
After years of poor sleep and restless nights, resulting in sleeping tablets from the doctor (zopilcone) I am now tablet free. and it is all due to Paul Mckenna and this book.

I started having sleeping problems five years ago, the occasional bad night, but this gradually increased until I was forced to go to the Doctor. Zopilcone allowed me to sleep, but I soon became hooked on tablets. Afraid the Doctor would stop prescribing my tablets, I inter-spaced them with anti histamines, strong painkillers, over the counter remedy's and I am afraid to admit friends tablets for depression, including diazepam and amitriptyline.(yeah what sort of friends are they I hear you say, but addicts have a way with persuasion...)

Yes I was hooked and for the last year or so unable to sleep unless I had taken something. I was desperate and on the verge of buying an expensive mind machine that was supposed to train me to sleep. But a friend recommended Paul's book and to be honest there has been no looking back. It truly is a miracle. The cd is great, but for me it is the method in his book that had the most effect. Just the ability to let go of the problem and not worry if I do not sleep, if I don't sleep then I get up and do something. But within two weeks of receiving the book, I was sleeping good quality sleep that had eluded me for years. So much good advice I just cannot believe it was that easy.

Yes it was hard at first, but I was determined to stick to it and I am sleeping, good quality sleep that leaves me refreshed and invigorated. I believe this book should be available on the NHS and should be mandatory before anyone is prescribed sleeping tablets (unless there is some real medical condition that is preventing them from sleeping). I just wished I had tried this book years ago, as I would not have spent the last five years in some sort of half life.

A big thank you from me to Paul McKenna
