The bestselling guide to curing insomnia without drugs by a pioneer of the field, now updated with the latest research (The Wall Street Journal)

For the past ten years, sleep-deprived Americans have found natural, drug-free relief from insomnia with the help of Dr. Gregg D. Jacobs's Say Good Night to Insomnia.

Jacobs's program, developed and tested at Harvard Medical School and based on cognitive behavioral therapy, has been shown to improve sleep long-term in 80 percent of patients, making it the gold standard for treatment. He provides techniques for eliminating sleeping pills; establishing sleep-promoting behaviors and lifestyle practices; and improving relaxation, reducing stress, and changing negative thoughts about sleep.

In this updated edition, Jacobs surveys the limitations and dangers of the new generation of sleeping pills, dispels misleading and confusing claims about sleep and health, and shares cutting-edge research on insomnia that proves his approach is more effective than sleeping pills.

Say Good Night to Insomnia
is the definitive guide to overcoming insomnia without drugs for the thousands of Americans who are looking for a healthy night's rest.

   Convinced a sceptic
I came across this book about CBT-I and decided to order it. I am a self-admitted skeptic, but that was trumped by the fact that I was desperate for a decent night's sleep. I am in the middle of the last week of the program and I am now a believer. Admittedly, the painR wakes me often through the night but I can quickly fall back asleep after shifting my position. Now I no longer have to get up twice a night to read, and I can sleep again. The Relaxation Response works well to get me back to sleep. I went from 6 months of not sleeping through the night to sleeping through the night every night in the 5th week. Ambien has been linked to several deaths.

This book is such an important reference for people who are suffering from insomnia. These natural negative thoughts can compound the problem by triggering stress hormones and contributing to the downward spiral of worry about insomnia. He had an overnight sleep study, had sinus surgery and nothing worked. It has helped him regain his energy and sleep.
   Sleep aid. I condensed it into 3 weeks. I was in a hurry. Learned a lot.
Even at its age, the book is a good read. It's great to be back home, said Blair. Thanks for the support.
   Great book
This has helped me sleep well, said Dr. Julie. It's great to be back home, said Dr. Brian Stokes, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California.
   The Best Insomnia Book
This is the very best book on insomnia I have ever read. I have read many others, but this was the only one which really provided help. Dr. Jacobs program helped me so much after I had tried other books and was getting so frustrated with the stress of not sleeping, she said.
   Author talks more about his self, and the studies ...
Author talks more about his self, and the studies, than what to do, and you have to copy the help forms, he said.
   No longer spending my days dreading my nights
As an insomniac for more than four decades, and as a psychologist for more than twenty, I cannot say enough good things about this book. It's just that life is changing. The more you feel happy, the more likely you are to have good relationships. The whole thing is a travesty, fumed Dr. Aronov, who called it "annoyingly written." The new system has too many exclamation points, making it seem like it has too many problems. Yes, we support gay marriage. It's just that people care, I say. I have not taken a sleeping pill for three months. 0 7171201 8171578 It has been a while since I last took a pill. Instead of thinking of myself as an INSOMNIAC, I now just go to sleep. The instructions can seem daunting, and I didn't follow all of them, but the basic principles work, Mr. Booher said. This book was recommended to me by two other insomniacs, also long time insomniacs, who raved about how it helped them overcome their own skepticism. Thanks to them and to Dr. Jacobs for this enormously helpful book.
   Sleeping nightly now!!
After years of insomnia, my wife, a registered nurse, had tried almost every sleeping medicine imaginable. After reading this book at the advice of a sleep specialist, she sleeps all night almost every night and takes NO sleep medicine! Home Forums Discussed issues in English.
   A bit outdated, but worth it
And I did actually find the history of sleeping pills and science interesting. I did not take six weeks to do all the exercises, Mr. Barrera said. Some of what's asked of you is tracked by my Fitbit, and some are things I already knew or had been keeping a close eye on. But having more of the information, and helping to change my beliefs about sleep, has been helpful.
   Very Helpful
So far I am finding this book 'eye opening' and wondering if there is an online copy of his 60-Second Sleep Diary.
