Description

For nearly 20 years, sleep-deprived Americans have found natural, drug-free relief from insomnia with the help of Dr. Gregg D. Jacobs' Say Good Night to Insomnia. Jacobs' 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.

Don’t Waste Your Time and Money

I have listened to “Say Good Night To Insomnia” twice!!! The audio book talks a lot about the authors background and the psychology of insomnia but very little time is dedicated on how to sleep better! Now if you are already taking sleeping pills, then you will find no resources how to get off, sadly :)

Extremely informative! Essential for insomniac's

I have personally suffered from chronic insomnia for years and the knowledge found in this book has begun to turn my sleep time into something positive. It essentially teaches you how to rewire your brain in order to achieve normal sleeping patterns. I truly believe that every insomniac should listen to this book and begin to understand how their brain works as it relates to sleeping. Even for someone who is not an insomniac it is still an interesting read and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wishes to have a greater understanding of sleep.

Why no template sleep diaries?

The weekly sleep diaries seem to be a key part of the program. But the audio book doesn't provide any template sleep diaries that I can print out and use. I think this is not fair for people like me who paid for the audible book.

On chapter 7. Still no plan

I am currently on Chapter 7 and we still don't have the plan. There has been an incredible amount of wasted time to explain; 1. Drugs don't work 2. The author did really good in his career, so far. Monks can control their body temperature. Not bad information to hear once but I cant get past it to find out the steps to say good night to insomnia. I will update this when I finish but please don't drive while listening to the first part.

Waste of time

This book is a waste of time. I’m 4 chapters in and all the book does is say over and over how great the program is without ever getting around to the technique. Like a very bad infomercial. Skip to chapter 5 and listen as you try to fall asleep. The book itself will put you to sleep. Good voice over however.

I'm sleeping better!

This is my 3rd day listening to it and I see improvementI stopped the Benadryl on day 1 and I have not felt the need of taking another pill. I'm changing the way I think about sleep and it is really helping me. I copied the questions for the diary and printed the pages out. I searched online and there's a template with the same questions (search for sleep diary template and you'll have it) but I like mine.

With my problem, I thought that nothing was going to help (I have a non stopping mind!) I was taking up to 4 Benadryl per night and sometimes, they didn't eve work as I expected, I would lay on the bed felling very sleepy but couldn't get to fall asleep because I wouldn't stop thinking. I'm now practicing going to bed when I'm drowsy and saying in my mind that I'll fall asleep and that I don't have to sleep all night in order to rest. Well, ironically, after thinking like that I do sleep more.

Don't run, the program explains how it works from the beginning and you can start sleeping better from day 1!!!

Donald Trump of Sleep Science

As far as shameless self promotion, wrong information and nonsensical blabbering, this author (if he is a sleep specialist as he claims), is the Donald Trump of Harvard Medical School.

Author loves himself

Really...I’m more than half through this dribble and still no plan, no actionable steps, just never ending stories of his patients, and scientific data to justify why sleeping pills are bad, and hey now we are on to the placebo effect. Forget it.

One good thing...his reading made me drowsy.

Life changing!

Life-changing information for everyone but especially insomniacs. I encourage you to research beyond this book about progressive relaxation techniques because they kind of glossed over it and there is better advice out there

A Great Help

I've learned quite a bit from the book and it has helped my sleep.

Don't be afraid to skip around in this book, the author likes to talk a lot around his tips for getting good sleep and tends to write just to write. He'll do everything but tell you what to do at points so bookmark frequently because a lot of this information is interesting but worthless.
