4.0 out of 5 stars A Basic Reference Manual Aug. 9 2008
By M. E. Wood - Published on
Format: Flexibound
According to author Renata L. Riha, MD, we spend one third of our lives asleep so it is vital to get a good night's sleep. This book is a basic reference that will answer questions in a number of different areas and is a good place for anyone to start if they are looking for information about sleep, sleep disorders and treatments.

The book is set up into different sections covering such topics as: understanding sleep; sleeping well; sleep disorders; illness, ageing and sleep; sleep and neurological problems; women and sleep; children and adolescents; and finally, tests and treatments. Each of these sections is further divided into related categories containing common questions with simple, clear, non-jargon, answers designed for the average person. You'll learn about disrupted sleep, sleep apnea, snoring, respiratory disorders, the effects of sex and hormones, how sleep changes as we age, and more. The Q & A text is broken up with charts, images and sidebars with other helpful information like the chart of "natural preparations" that promote sleep or an example of a "sleep diary".

I found the book to be a very easy and informative read helping me understand my husband's insomnia as well as understand a common complaint we both share, snoring; although neither of us would admit it. A few of the answers were simplistic in the sense that I found some of the answers common knowledge; like not to drink coffee before bed (that's where the lost point went).

The book is set up and well crossed referenced so that a reader does not have to read the entire book to find the topic they are looking for. When we were done my husband even shared it with a colleague at work who was experiencing sleep issues. He too found it useful.

As for book quality, I've read a number of DK books and am quite impressed with the quality of the reference books they produce. The covers and pages are heavy card stock which seem extra durable for regular reference. Reviewed by M. E. Wood.
