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!

Would buy but hope he comes up with second volume

As an insomniac I have read a few books on the topic and have been to a CBT-i therapist. The first few chapters of this book impressed me in that those go deeper into the actual thoughts of insomnia, he expands on what others only cover in a short paragraph. He keeps on repeating one thing that I don’t find helpful at all , he made me feel as if insomnia is not a big deal because “ no one dies from insomnia” , and “everyone will eventually fall asleep” and a “bad night sleep doesn’t mean a bad day the next day “. While I agree with all of those insomnia don’t kill me , and I will eventually fall asleep and ONE night might not make my next day miserable , many nights of sleeping only 3 to 4 hours or falling asleep for 20 mins in eve and not been able to sleep any more until 5 am etc etc will likely do affect ones mood and ability to work living one miserable and perhaps even unemployed I wish he explained this better. Also I wish the book went into more detail or at least tell you were to get more details on 1) getting off pills 2) he could be a bit more convincing about the harms of sleep aids 3) he can expand on how to do light therapy that he mentions and how to use the meds for that etc . The first few chapters make this book a great buy is not same old. CBTi books often only get into the behaviors ignoring the C of cognitive. ( one other thing he mentions at home sleep studies saying they don’t measure brain activity and only breathing , I was sent with one home and it did not measure breathing only measure brain activity and stages with glue on head, I assume the technologies have changed)
-do recommend buying - however don’t find him to truly show empathy of many underlaying concerns of an insomniac trying to sleep
The reading is pleasant to listen to

Fantastic!

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

Good information with humorous delivery

Learned some good tips about getting better sleep but also enjoyed the narrative. Bits of humor keep the brain listening. Content is spot on.

Two helps I would have liked: the chapters are labeled with numbers instead of words, which would help if I want to listen to something specific again. Also, the table of contents does not currently synch with the audio.

Extremely helpful

My sleep issues are new; probably the last 3 months or so. My doc was quick to put me on medication after supplements didn't work but even the sleeping pills weren't always working and I didn't like the idea of taking something all the time. This book reinforced that medication wasn't a great answer and allowed me to relax about my sleep and sleep quality and I am already sleeping much better.

This book was really boring and I didn’t learn any new information from it

I got this book thinking it was going to be really good and insightful because it had a lot of good reviews but it wasn’t informative and I regret getting it.

Good read

I loved learning about sleep. however I felt at times it put me to sleep rather than intrigued me. the narrator's voice is very soothing.
