It's been a few months since reading The Insomnia Workbook but thought I would wait to jot some several thoughts down with regard to the efficacy of its treatment. Some general things about its effectiveness:

That said, this book has some good, straightforward advice and practical exercises, so I do recommend it for those who are just getting started dealing with drug-free approaches to sleep problems.

This book is a solid introduction and workbook for the cognitive behavioral therapy approach to dealing with non-apnea insomnias. Silberman explains succinctly and cogently the theory and practice behind the approach and clearly lays out the techniques and rationales for the various components. I can't say my sleep has improved tremendously yet, but I know how to do something about it now.
