No one can describe a journey better than someone who's made the trip, and insomniac Greene's exploration of the disorder is both fascinating and disturbing... Supplementing her own experience with that of other chronic insomniacs and a look at the science of sleep, Greene offers an enjoyable and informative account that will provoke even readers who get their full eight hours a nigh.' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review ( 'This work provides a rich account of insomnia, weaving together the personal journey of the auhtor, experiences of other insomniacs, and solid scientific research. No other work on insomnia provides such a fresh perspective, which is also informative, co)
INSOMNIAC is an impassioned work - an inspired amalgam of academic and first-hand research, memoir, analysis, and the kind of obsessive brooding we associate with the insomniac state. Much here is fascinating, and much is upsetting; here is a cri de coeu ( 'As a clinical psychologist aflicted by insomnia for many years, I was delighted to read INSOMNIAC. Doing so has already helped me and my insomniac clients immensely. Gayle Greene 'gets it')
as only another insomniac can. She educates, advises, and comforts with a steady, sympathetic hand.' Timothy Miller, PhD, Stockyon, CA ( 'The good news is that Gayle Greene's book is all you ever need to read on the subject of sleeplessness; the bad news for fellow insomniacs is that reading it - even in bed - will fail to lull you to sleep.' Billy Collins, former Poet Laureate of the US)
This book is packed with research and helpful details on treatment options, medicines and therapies. ( HEALTH & FITNESS)
Gayle Greene has suffered from chronic insomnia all her life. She has explored an astonishing array of remedies, from hardcore sleeping pills to alternative therapies, and has found ways of coping, but never a cure. This book is written for and about the silent multitude of people who suffer from chronic insomnia, and whose lives are permanently distorted by it.
In INSOMNIAC, Gayle travels the world in a quest for answers, interviewing neurologists, sleep researchers, doctors, psychotherapists and insomniacs of all sorts. What comes of her journey is an up-to-date account of what is known about insomnia, providing the information every insomniac needs to know to make intelligent choices amongst the vast selection of medicines and therapies. It is a fascinating account of Gayle's struggle, but it is also a timely and much-needed call to arms for more research into what really causes insomnia - so that the patient isn't automatically considered to be the one to blame.
