Sasha Stephens suffered a full fifteen years with crippling, terrifying insomnia before a chance event enabled her to see the problem from an entirely new perspective. What came next was astonishing; fifteen years of insomnia had disappeared in the space of a few weeks. Following extensive research, Sasha created the Effortless Sleep Method, a step-by-step sleep training program which has now helped countless insomniacs to get their lives back. Sasha maintains that with a little honesty and commitment, anyone can cure their insomnia, no matter how severe. In this book, she will leave you open-mouthed with her understanding and insight into sleep problems. In a chatty, engaging manner, she will hold your hand through every step of your recovery, anticipating your feelings, your fears and your doubts. Sasha understands insomnia acutely, like only one who has suffered the horror of this affliction can.
The ability to sleep soundly, naturally and unaided is the desire of every chronic insomniac. This method will guide you to rediscovering your innate ability to sleep without pills, potions or external sleep aids. When The Effortless Sleep Method is followed properly, the results can be incredible. Many people report sleeping better than they have ever done. Now, anyone can have perfect sleep.

Someone has finally "cracked" insomnia...

This is one of the best books on insomnia I have ever read. I realized that insomnia is really just fear. The fear of not sleeping is what creates insomnia. The author has worked a way around the mind-bending complexity of this disorder and she offers some practical and useful tips for getting better sleep. I can now say I am no longer afraid of not sleeping, and consequently I am sleeping much better.

Smart lady

She figured it out and put it all together. Her story is my story, but I I have suffered from insomnia for 40 years and this makes so much sense. I felt so alone and now I feel hopeful and so far good results,

Don't obsess about not sleeping, it makes it worse

If you've just read the title of my review then I've summed up the main premise of the book for you in nine words!

Nothing here that doesn't become obvious if you can't sleep for a while. I didn't hear much I hadn't heard at some point before, or worked out for myself. Quite good in a reassuring way, to know that there isn't any quick fix I wasn't aware of and that It's a good thing not to worry about not sleeping if you can't, because people do try and make you feel you ought to be trying to do something about it...So it is reassuring that she's put into words some of what I was thinking anyway. Other things she said were only relevant to people who only have a problem sleeping, like only spending time in bed if you're sleeping; I don't agree with that, as, so long as you are resting, relaxing your body and getting the rest you require even if you aren't actually asleep; as long as you don't worry about it and think it doesn't matter(perhaps occupy your mind with a gentle audio book as I do), then it's okay and you're at rest even when you're not sleeping.

So some of what she said sounded quite amusing in some ways, it even sounded slightly crazy, as obviously if you obsess about not sleeping it's never going to help. Is she for real that it took her so long to work out that if you worry about not sleeping it makes it worse and perpetuates the cycle? I guess so or she wouldn't have written so much!

Narrator sounds good.

patronising and abrupt but helpful

wonderful! If you can tolerate and be understanding when the author is patronising and using manipulation and dominance towards the reader then this book is very helpful and effective. she just isn't an expert in communication or decency. Believe in yourself and commit to reading it all then judging it

The pot calls the kettle black a bit

Would you consider the audio edition of The Effortless Sleep Method to be better than the print version?

Print version? you think I'll read both?

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?


What does Stevie Zimmerman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

these questions are irrelevant

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

not really

Any additional comments?

She has a good suggestion for insomnia, just stop worrying about it. but she does do what she says you shouldn't do A LOT, a bit hypocritical. i.e don't spend your hard earned money on remedies that don't work, 'go to my website and use this special code to buy my products' etc. 'Don't believe in any sleep remedies, my remedy will cure you'
