Robert S. Rosenberg . Demos Health (www.demoshealth.com), $16.95 trade paper (268p) ISBN 978-1-936303-72-4
From increased appetite and diminished immune function to hallucinations and tremors, short nights can pack a hard punch. So says sleep disorders pro Rosenberg in this practical guide to getting a good night's sleep. Using simple language and a conversational tone, the author extols the far-reaching benefits of restorative sleep; warns of the damaging effects of restless nights; and uses actual patient stories to illustrate a laundry list of disorders. Rosenberg begins with a self-test for identifying symptoms and pinpointing specific problems like sleep apnea, circadian rhythm disorders, and night terrors. Readers are then directed to the sections of the book most useful to them, where more specialized information and advice for seeking additional resources can be found. Rosenberg also delves into serious issues like night eating and sexsomnia and offers readers the tools for understanding the delicate confluence of sleep disorders and psychiatric diagnoses (PTSD and ADHD in particular). With its wealth of easy-to-understand information, the book is an invaluable reference for anyone who has suffered through sleepless nights. (July)
