John Wiedman is neither a doctor nor a therapist, but the years he has spent in the trenches of insomnia, fighting for an elusive good night's sleep, has made him an expert in the war against sleepless nights. In conversational tones, John talks about how he has overcome a sleeping disorder that affects about one-third of the adult population in America and lays out a blueprint showing how sufferers don't have to spend their nights tossing and turning and their days struggling to stay awake. John uses his "on-the-job" experience to guide readers through a program that will help them develop healthy habits that promote a restful and peaceful night of slumber. Desperately Seeking Snoozing is the one book that can boast that it will put you to sleep.

Review:

"Professional insomniac" John Wiedman isn't a doctor; he researched and developed this anti-insomnia program in order to overcome his own sleep problems. His recommendation is that people suffering from severe insomnia should actually restrict their sleeping time to the bare minimum they need to function during the day. Some may find this a difficult prescription, but judging from his readers' testimonials, it can work. Desperately Seeking Snoozin' also includes general information about sleep medications, lifestyle changes that can affect sleep, and how eating late at night can affect the sleep cycle. The book is rounded out with messages from insomnia chat boards on the Internet, which give a sense of the amount of genuine suffering sleep problems can cause. --Ben Kallen

From the Author:

Last year I cured my lifelong chronic insomnia and wrote Desperately Seeking Snoozin' about my experience and cure. In order to get feedback, I sent early drafts to insomniacs that I found in the Internet. As I am neither a writer nor a medical professional, I was amazed by their responses.

I was even more surprised by the reaction of the medical community. I was particularly pleased with the quote, "A book that every insomniac should read", by Dr. Peter Hauri, considered by many to be the world's leading authority on insomnia. Dr. Hauri is Director of the Insomnia Program at the Mayo Clinic and author of "No More Sleepless Nights".
