"Lazy college kids may claim to be experts when it comes to sleep, but they've got nothing on Idzikowski and his decidedly wide-eyed and active exploration of the Land of Nod ... Accessible, informative, and light enough to read in bed ... this guide will get readers dozing in no time."
- Publishers Weekly (May 6, 2013)

The author advises reading the whole book without skipping bits, and I would recommend doing this as it works well as a "whole". There are some websites, etc, recommended at the end. I've had a quick glance at a couple of these and am not sure how useful I would find them, but others might.
One area that is only touched on superficially is diet and the effects of different foods on sleep. Some people are more sensitive than others, of course, but personally I find a satsuma after around 5 pm keeps me awake for hrs, celery at any time gives me painful leg cramps around 2 am, and dark chocolate makes my restless legs much worse. Isolating foods that may affect you is very trial and error, and quite time consuming, but for me, it has been worth the effort.
For many people with sleep problems, there are no magic solutions, and the author does acknowledge this. You do have to experiment to find what is effective for you, either in terms of improving your sleep or coping with the deficit.
