This book covers a lot of ground - the science of sleep, the stages of sleep, the benefits and burdens - what happens when you sleep too much or not enough. It also talks about what can affect sleep hygiene, such as medical conditions like ADHD (which I have), Alzheimer's, MS and epilepsy.
I have a sleep disorder myself on top of my adult ADHD, and I have had two sleep studies done without success. I found this book was full of helpful tips; I know some of them work (I do sleep better when my room is clean, for example, and after drinking herbal tea). Worthwhile for those who are trying to learn how to get a better night's sleep. Right now, even when I do sleep, I don't usually feel rested. It's an ongoing problem from childhood, and I've just sort of learned to live with it. Now, I look forward to trying out the suggestions in this book.

This is the best sleep aid I've discovered! this book pretty much covers all aspects of the sleep issue.
- I appreciated the pre-bed countdown of when to stop doing things, from the obvious caffeine to the less obvious items.
- The description of what happens when you sleep was thorough and very helpful.
- The list of foods that promote good sleep, as well as the ones that interfere with sleeping, was eye-opening. I knew about the tryptophan in turkey, but beyond that, I was clueless.
- The description of sleep disorders (and the wide array of possible treatments) helps me understand what some of my friends are living with.
- .I have never before encountered instructions for how to get BACK to sleep after you wake up in the middle of the night! These were practical, and I actually had opportunity to implement a few of the suggestions a few nights ago; they helped!
Listening to this book won't put you to sleep but it will help your sleep life.

I really enjoyed listening to this guide. Although I would consider some of the information as common sense there was also a whole lot more that I had no idea could affect your sleep or how lack of sleep can affect you. For example, it is obvious that a lack of sleep is going to have a negative impact on you, but I had no idea it could affect your weight.
My sleep patterns have been very erratic lately due to a busy life but after listening to this guide I definitely feel more motivated to put the advice in to action and improve the quality of my sleep.
Definitely worth listening to if you value your sleep and more importantly your body.

I was searching for some sleep tips for my partner who struggles with chronic tiredness and I ran into McCloud’s sleep guide. That is what I call a complete compendium of knowledge. Very well written, approachable and informative.
It got me surprised how simple solutions can help improve your quality of life just by improving the quality of sleep. Amazing, how many elements of our everyday life, such as food, drinks, stress level…affect our resting. I surely did not know there are foods which can promote sleep! Like cherries or bananas.
McCloud’s sleep book is an easy to listen, interesting guide. Every chapter brings some advices simple and obvious, however life-changing solutions for improving your sleep pattern. Author points out some eyes opening connection between sleep and every day mental and physical activities.
For me it has been a personal problem, as since a long time I have been struggling with clear thinking. Didn’t realise that all I need is some good regular sleep to maximise my creativity and rejuvenate my mind. It turned out that the difficulty in remembering things is due to the sleeping habits. From now on McCloud’s book will justify my afternoon naps!
I would recommend “Sleep” guide to all those busy, hardworking, stressed or health-oriented readers, looking for answers on how and why to get a good efficient sleep, given that the time is limited.
