About the Authors
  • Despite its prevalence, insomnia remains poorly understood, mainly because of the lack of clear scientific data supporting the many approaches used. Millions of sufferers turn to alcohol, melatonin or over-the-counter sleep aids, despite the risks and lack of empirical evidence supporting the efficacy or safety of these agents. This book is the first of its kind to collate the up-to-date scientific data in order to identify the gaps in our knowledge and improve clinical management. A highly distinguished team of contributors examines the most recent findings and points where research should be heading. They cover the nature and prevalence of insomnia throughout the lifespan; the molecular, neuropharmacological, and neuroanatomical systems of relevance to insomnia, and the impact of related problems (such as shift work, industrial accidents, mood disorders, and other sleep disorders). This is essential reading for all health care professionals engaged in the management of insomnia.

    • The first of its kind to collate and summarise cutting-edge scientific information on the diagnosis and treatment of insomnia
    • Authoritative one-stop resource for healthcare providers and interested laypeople
    • Useful appendices for clinical assessment and management of insomnia

    '… a well-balanced account of the problems faced by those with insomnia and those caring for insomniacs … this book is very good value.' Psychological Medicine

    'There is a clear style running through each chapter in the book which makes the text easy to follow … an up-to-date and helpful account … well-balanced account of the problems faced by those with insomnia and those caring for insomniacs … Each chapter is well referenced and the tables and line diagrams are clearly constructed. This book should be useful, not only to psychologists and psychiatrists but also to others specializing in sleep medicine, especially neurologists and general practitioners with an interest in sleep disorders. At £34.95 this book is very good value.' Journal of Psychological Medicine
