Less Than Compelling

The author really did his homework
The author really did his homework on this novel. I think the tepid rating is because he focuses less on the action and more on geopolitics, characterization, and impartiality.

this book doesn't contain any information any insomniac doesn't already know. In fact, the author, an MD, comes off as very sterile and unempathetic. I'd wager a bet he's never actually suffered from insomnia: he's just reading from current insomnia psychology. I would recommend Sasha Stephen's Sleep For Life because, even though she's not an MD, she's suffered her entire life and she's put together an excellent program based in research and science.
