Publisher's Summary

With cutting-edge sleep science and time-tested techniques, The Sleep Solution will help anyone achieve healthy sleep and eliminate pills, pain, and fatigue.

If you want to fix your sleep problems, Internet tips and tricks aren't going to do it for you. You need to really understand what's going on with your sleep - both what your problems are and how to solve them.

The Sleep Solution is an exciting journey of sleep self-discovery and understanding that will help you custom design specific interventions to fit your lifestyle. Drawing on his 24 years of experience within the field, neurologist and sleep expert W. Chris Winter will help you...

  • Understand how sleep works and the ways in which food, light, and other activities act to help or hurt the process
  • Learn why sleeping pills are so often misunderstood and used incorrectly - and how you can achieve your best sleep without them
  • Incorporate sleep and napping into your life - whether you are a shift worker, a student, or an overcommitted parent
  • Think outside the box to better understand ways to treat a multitude of conditions - from insomnia to sleep apnea to restless leg syndrome and circadian sleep disorders
  • Wade through the ever-changing sea of sleep technology and understand its value as it relates to your own sleep struggles

Dubbed the "Sleep Whisperer" by Arianna Huffington, Dr. Winter is an international expert on sleep and has helped more than 10,000 patients rest better at night, including countless professional athletes. Now he's bringing his experiences out from under the covers - redefining what it means to have optimal sleep and get the ZZZs you really need.

Includes tips, tricks, and exercises.

loved his approach!

I'm a CBT-based sleep coach and I read pretty much any sleep books that comes my way, and this is my new favorite!! Dr. Winter in funny and engaging, and a great narrator. Additionally, I really appreciated his approach, which emphasizes a take-the-pressure-off style, and even offers some ideas I hadn't heard before. I think this book offers advice and options that can help even the most well-read poor sleepers out there.

Informative and funny! A must read even if you don’t have a sleep problem!

This book is informative, helpful and most of all funny. It’s about time someone wrote a book about sleep that doesn’t put you to sleep. This book goes into detail of the different sleep issues and ways to treat them in a way that anyone can understand. Great job!

Fantastic!

Made me rethink all I know about my insomnia for the better. I'm already sleeping better and without chemicals.

Cured!

After reading a few months ago, I was back to normal within days. I have occasional lack of sleep now, but I just don’t sweat it. I attribute my better sleep to Dr. Winter’s suggestions.

Very helpful

While I can’t use everything from this book, I can use a good portion of it. For that reason, I think it’s a great tool if one is having trouble sleeping. I’ve been working on my sleep for a couple of years now, and this put the nail in my coffin so to speak. I sleep a lot better having read this book.

I learned so much more about sleep issues.

Well written, amusing and filled with important health information. This a book for sharing with family and friends. I have had sleep issues from childhood and didn't know it.
