Product information Publisher Barron's Educational Series Product description According to a 2005 survey by the American National Sleep Foundation, fewer than half of Americans say they get a good night's sleep during most nights. Sleep Manual presents practical ways in which readers can tackle sleep disorders and make sleeping more relaxing and restorative. The authors explain sleep in scientific terms and identify common sleep disorders. Among them is sleep apnea, a respiratory condition that produces frequent, brief sleep interruptions throughout the night and is characterized by heavy snoring.

Insomnia, the most common sleep disorder, receives particular attention; its various causes and the medically proven ways in which sufferers can overcome it are detailed.
