No More Sleepless Nights - Paperback - by Peter Hauri Helps sufferers of chronic insomnia as well as those who only sometimes sleep poorly. A clear, step-by-step approach shows how to determine the source of sleeplessness and then implement programmatic corrective action. Not vague generalities about ``relaxing,'' these are specific recommendations for what to do and how to do it. The director of the Cedars-Sinai Sleep Disorders Center, Dr. Philip R. Westbrook calls Dr. Hauri ``the leading authority on insomnia in the world today...He has vast clinical experience in treating patients with insomnia and has a unique ability to teach what he has learned. Although the catchy title may mislead, this is a serious encyclopedia of sleep disorders. Based on sleep disorder studies from the Mayo Clinic's insomnia program, of which Hauri is director, this book goes into precise detail on the many kinds of insomnia, incorporating the complete range of research and treatment in easy and accessible language. The core of the program is record keeping, and the book discusses the sleep and day logs that patients often must keep for weeks before the particular cause for the sleep disorder is discovered. For consumer health collections, this is the best book this reviewer has seen on insomnia. Highly recommended. - Evelyn L. Mott, Palm Beach Cty. P.L . , West Palm Beach, Fla.
