This was the first "hypnosis" audio book I purchased, and I absolutely love it. I fall asleep each and every time I listen to it, and I actually look forward to bedtime now because I know I'll fall asleep quickly. The only complaint I have is the same as a previous reviewers: Audible's own "You've been listening to Audible" at the end of the recording wakes me up every night. Yes, I fall asleep again quickly, but it seems terribly irresponsible of them to mess with a sleep title. I wish I could edit their announcement out.
This disc has spread from my family to everyone I know. We all use it every night, kids from age one to my eighty year old grandmother, and we are all sleeping great every night.
A long time reader and listener - I just can't get enough of Audible! (Especially mysteries and Buddhist texts and history and ...etc!
But that's what it's supposed to do!
This audio is good quality, the narrator/author's voice is soothing (it is British, so if you don't like that accent, beware). This audio "book" is sort of divided into two parts, and the author says at the beginning that you could turn off the audio at the end of CD1 and then listen to CD2 the following night. Of course, I am not listening to CD's, but on my iPod, and I choose to listen to the entire sleep hypnosis, even though I don't think I've ever stayed awake til the end!
So, yes, I'd say this definitely relaxes me and helps me get to sleep. I like the voice, I like the rhythm, and I wake up feeling more calm but energized at the same time.
I've used Ambien in the past to get me to stay asleep. I was skeptical at first, but from night one of listening to Harrold's hypnotic voice, I really did fall asleep faster and I stayed asleep through the night. In fact, I've gotten addicted to it. I look forward to the soothing voice, the background music... There's something to it. I highly recommend it.
I really enjoy this audio. I use it every night and I could tell a major didifference in my restfulness after just one use. I highly recommend.
I have fibromyalgia, a condition which makes sleep, particularly deep sleep, elusive. I've been amazed at how deeply I've slept with this program, to the point where my alarm clock in the morning startles me. I can not reccomend it enough.
Listening to this at bedtime truly helps me relax in a short period of time and I find myself falling asleep before I know it. Previously I rarely remembered my dreams, yet since using this tape I have much stronger recall of my dreams when I wake up. I recommend "Deep Sleep Every Night" highly.
I have been using this for about 6 weeks and I have seen a marked improvement in my sleep..both in quality and ability to stay asleep. I highly recommend this to anyone that has issues with sleep.
I found Glenn's account a little difficult to get used to at first, but after a time it was fine. His approach is straighforward, soothing, and effective, and contains none of the distracting or irritating elments that one sometimes finds in other audio tracks of this type. I recommend this audio book.
