Self Help

Gayle Greene has suffered from chronic insomnia all her life. She has explored an astonishing array of remedies, from hardcore sleeping pills to alternative therapies, and has found ways of coping, but never a cure. This book is written for and about the silent multitude of people who suffer from chronic insomnia, and whose lives are permanently distorted by it. In INSOMNIAC, Gayle travels the world in a quest for answers, interviewing neurologists, sleep researchers, doctors, psychotherapists and insomniacs of all sorts. What comes of her journey is an up-to-date account of what is known about insomnia, providing the information every insomniac needs to know to make intelligent choices amongst the vast selection of medicines and therapies. It is a fascinating account of Gayle's struggle, but it is also a timely and much-needed call to arms for more research into what really causes insomnia - so that the patient isn't automatically considered to be the one to blame.
