extremely helpful and easy to follow even when you are sleep deprived (and that's important)

I haven't been sleeping well lately, so I checked this out of my local library. It was a really insightful read.

The main piece of advice I'm taking away from the book is to go to bed every night and wake up every morning at the same time. This trains your body that those are the times to sleep and wake, respectively. It may seem innocuous to sleep in on weekends, but that's literally the equivalent of artificially inducing several hours of jet lag on yourself.

Only give yourself as much time in

I'm not sure what I was expecting but this book brought nothing new to the table that anyone with sleep problems hasn't known for years. Not a bad book, just not overly helpful.

It was more like a workbook. Didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know. Just went into "greater" depth. If you consider 156 pages of mostly workbook to be "in depth."

Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep:Solutions to Insomnia for Those with Depression, Anxiety or Chronic Painby(2009) by Coleen Carney and Rachel Manber is a solid book that provides a workbook style approach to getting better sleep.

I had some trouble getting to sleep for a few weeks and the book has helped with suggestions and also a score about whether you really have insomnia or not. I don't. This in itself was quite helpful. The book unfortunately doesn't include anything on sleep tracking

This book is immensely helpful!

Over the past decade that I've dealt with and attempted to treat insomnia via theropy, medications, mindfulness, etc, this book is easily the most helpful of anything I've ever read. It incorporates many techniques proven to help eliminate insomnia and sleep troubles and guides you through every step. I highly recommend it if you cannot find a good CBTI therapist near you.

This is a great workbook from New Harbinger. Trouble sleeping is, unfortunately, a common problem for many adults. There are a lot of steps to follow in this book, but the method is easy to understand. I have to admit that I got sidetracked with some of the activities and to do justice to the book, I will need to go back and complete them properly. This is for someone that seriously wants to tackle the issue of insomnia.

I have had an insomnia problem for many years and in the past cognitive behaviour therapy has been a real help. I have found this book to be a clear guide and an encouragement to work through the problem systematically when it rears it's head. The down to earth and practical advice have encouraged me to try out things like getting up in the night when i can't sleep. Previously I did not think I could do it.

As a beginner, I found this book to be incredibly helpful. It does have to do with a lot of common sense solutions, but it works because it's a concrete manifestation of those thoughts. I read it in conjunction with seeing a sleep psychologist, and this book served as a great reinforcement and reminder for the time between our sessions.

This book explained in detail common tips for improving your sleep. I would recommend this book to anyone striving to improve their sleep. I would also recommend that you take your time reading it. Improving anything takes time and practice.

If you have significant problems with insomnia and are ready to make changes that might help, this book is a good place to start. The information and techniques are well-supported by research, and follow standard guidelines for insomnia treatment.

I liked the idea and principles in this book but as I implemented them I became more anxious about my quantity of sleep and it backfired on me. Once I laid the principles to rest, I have been sleeping better. Interesting book just didn't work for me.

A very helpful read for me. My insomnia is already improving.

Some of the writing style is not the way I would choose to write things, but the content seems spot on.
