Format: Paperback
I would definitely encourage you to buy this book. Ignore the negative comment, I don't know what they are on about at all. This book gives very good clear sound advice and no, it is not all obvious. I admit that most people with even the smallest brain would know some of the things the book tells you (e.g. don't drink too much caffeine), but he gives you further in-depth advice i.e. that you can drink caffeine in the morning, just not roughly 6 hours before sleep. Again, most people know that exercise can help, but he tells you when the best times to exercise are.

I developed insomnia because I went for a very stressful anxious time and had been suffering for a couple of months. This helped me improve my sleep within a week. Then, during week 2 I was able to sleep really well five nights out of seven, and now (about five weeks on) I've only had one bad night of sleep in the last two weeks.

Strangely, the nights that I do get to sleep without a problem, I actually get to sleep much quicker than I used to (probably about five or 10 minutes!), whereas I used to take about 20 minutes normally. It has also helped me question whether I need my eight hours of sleep at night. I've actually come to realise that I can get by quite easily with seven without being tired the next day.

I also bought the McKenna "I can make you sleep" book and CD, which was also quite helpful (tho this book was better). I used the CD occasionally at night (although you are meant to listen to it every night, but most nights I go to sleep within a few minutes).

And if you like to listen to music or hypnosis tapes at night, I would thoroughly suggest the sound asleep pillow (which can also be bought on Amazon). It is also the most comfortable pillow I have ever had, and actually made me want to get into bed to go to sleep!

Don't worry, you CAN cure your insomnia!

An easy read with lots of helpful tips on how to sleep better. It helps to change the way you think about sleep and has lots of positive advice. I feel as if it's already helped me in a matter of days. Buy it, you won't regret it.

This book is the best book I have read on sleep. In particular it addresses long term chronic insomnia very well and provides a way to end this hellish nightmare. The treatment of sleeping pills is especially insightful. While reading, I found myself nodding my head in agreement constantly, realizing that here was a sleep professional who actually understood the problem so many people face in isolation. What a welcome relief from others who provide no solutions. I highly recommend this book.

I am the author of Desperately Seeking Snoozin' and also sponsor a very active insomnia discussion forum. Many of the people who post on the site have reported how much Dr. Jacob's book has helped them sleep better and recommend the book for other sufferers. My congratulations to Dr. Jacobs for his book and for the insomnia program that he runs. There are very few sleep clinics that offer a good insomnia program.

After seven years of constant insomnia, this book had me sleeping well within a week and, after following the full six week program, I'm now back to a totally normal sleep pattern. Sleep (or the lack of it) no longer rules my life.

I started having terrible insomnia a few months ago, starting off very gradually, until I was staying awake until 6am, falling asleep exhuasted and waking up at 10:30 arriving for work 4 hours late! I was absolutely desperate and after a fruitless trip to the doctors decided to browse Amazon. Found this book and havent looked back. Im sleeping 7 full hours every night and no longer have that dread in the pit of my stomach when evening approaches. Im actually sleeping better than before I had insomnia - It used to take me an hour to fall alseep and now I'm comatose in 20 minutes flat. I have read the negetive comment, this person has clearly miss-understood the concept of this book - it takes away the fear of insomnia and teaches you to control the way you think about it. People may be sceptical about this but the proof is there - it works. Im not irritable, tired or moody and no longer relying on sleeping pills. Its such a relief!! Thank you Dr Greg D. Jacobs! I highly recommend this book to anyone who has trouble sleeping, young or old, (it even has a section for children and babies) so its even good for parents of young children. Once again Greg - thank you!!

I am the type that doesn't do "self help" reading but after 3 months of extremely bad insomnia, I was referred to Gregg Jacobs' text and I have to say, his book saved me! Sceptical at first, and skipping the chapters on withdrawing from sleeping pills (I had refused to take any), this book put me on track within 6 weeks and made me sleep again. At the worst times of sleeplessness during my reading, I would remind myself of one very important observation noted in the book - that "no one ever died from lack of sleep" and psychologically, this started my steep recovery process. The book will tell you in any event - but I note it here ... insomnia is about changing the way you think about it. And this book does exactly that. It cured me when I thought nothing ever would and I have never looked back. Buy it if you are suffering, because you have nothing else to lose and everything to gain from sleeping again.
