I love the accent. His voice is very comforting. I also agree that Audible ruined the sleep cycle by their ending. I also wake up startled to the ending Audible message. Take that out and I'd give it 5 stars.

I highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who has wished for help getting to sleep. I have used many meditation and self-hypnosis tapes over the past 15 years with varying degrees of success.
I have certainly not expected anything new and outstanding to come along. But then I kept coming across rave reviews for Glenn Harrold who wrote and recorded this tape. I gave in to hope and purchased it and....it works!
He uses a totally different technique than the others I have heard. Please do use ear phones if you can because you will hear all of the different suggestions and different tones that he combines. He overlays his sentences with other sentences at times. You will see what I mean if you get this. And the music is so easy and unintrusive. His voice is perfect for this kind of tape.
If you have as much trouble as I do sleeping then you will understand my enthusiasm for this. I hope you have the same great results that I have had! Best wishes.

This title is in two parts, part one helps you sleep and part two is intended to produce lucid dreaming. The concept of lucid dreaming is that the dreamer is aware of dreaming and can, theoretically, change the course and the outcome of the dream. This is particulary useful if you suffer from nightmares or night terrors.
I have been listening to this title almost every night since I purchased it and find that it does the trick for me. I either drift off to sleep listening, or more usually, fall asleep after listening. I would certainly recommend this rather than sleeping pills to help develop good sleep hygiene.
The lucid dreaming technique in part two might not appeal to some but as I am interested in this technique, I find it very useful.
To summarise, if you are not interested in lucid dreaming you may be better with a title that concentrates soley on deep sleep.

I've tried a few relaxation tapes but none of them have helped me sleep as well as this one. I have been using it for a few weeks and only once have I not drifted off during it.
A lot of relaxation tapes ask you to lie on your back and progressively relax your body. I find that I tense up with those kinds of tapes rather than relax. This one doesn't do that, which I like.
It seems like I don't have to 'do' anything, or concentrate on anything (he gives my mind permission to wander) and that makes it easier to relax.
The music also helps the relaxation as it gradually slows my breathing down.
If you are looking for something to help you sleep, this is definately worth a try.

The voice of the narrator is very hard to listen to so takes away the point of being relaxed.
i have always been a huge fan of Glenn Harrold, i suffer from insomnia that stems from my anxiety/panic attacks, so i do not sleep well and my mind ia going a mile a minute. I love Glenn's deep sleep guided meditation because he helps me relax and get some much needed rest/sleep. Thanks Glenn you are amazing and your voice is very soothing.
