Clinical insomniacs need more sleep, not less, says sleep expert.

He claims cetaceans experience rem sleep, even though there is no evidence for this. He makes numerous statements that can't be verified, and even claims that can be verified as false.

    Update: certain individuals appear attack this book's credibility online.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    As this reference addresses the negative neurological impacts of certain pharmaceuticals ingested for sleep, certain corrupt motives may ultimately provide deceptive viewpoint(s) in contrast to the clear neuroscience this book offers.

    Informative doesn’t even come close.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon
