Insomnia is one of the major afflictions of the modern world, and is responsible for a great deal of lost productivity, accidents and suffering. About one in three of us report sleep problems.

However stress, which predisposes to these conditions, is also is a major cause of insomnia. This book, by a leading consultant psychiatrist, explains how you may sleep better. Topics include:
· Does insomnia matter?

· Why can't I sleep?
· Specific problems which interfere with sleep
· Using a sleep diary
· Managing stress

· Pills and potions
