"Sleep problems can be very disruptive for everyone in the family. Often there is tremendous frustration, especially for the parents as they struggle to understand what is going on as they try first one tactic and then another, often without success.

Dr Lyn Quine is a world authority on childrens sleep problems and she has successfully translated years of research and clinical experience into an easy-to-read guide, full of information and practical help. Parents can feel confident that the step-by-step programmes described here are soundly based in scientific study and yet they can easily be used at home by any parent." -- Colin Espie, Professor of Psychological Medicine, Gartnavel Royal Hospital, University of Glasgow
