A renowned ABC News anchor/correspondent and former insomniac presents cutting-edge research, expert advice, intimate stories, and easy-to-implement solutions to help readers get the sleep they need.
Roughly thirty percent of the population is estimated to be living with insomnia, while many more unknowingly suffer from other sleep disorders. Macedo learned the hard way how valuable sleep is, and how it affects everything from our heart to our brain to our immune system. She had tried sleep tip after sleep tip, but nothing worked. Attacking the problem as a journalist, she got to the bottom of what really keeps us from sleeping-- and the various ways to fix it. Here she helps readers understand sleep biology, identify sleep obstacles, and shift their mindset-- and maybe find a good night's sleep. -- adapted from jacket
