Your Sleep Map: Navigating Your Own Path to Relief from Insomnia by Thad R Harshbarger is packed with information about sleep, our needs, and more importantly how to deal with the different causes of sleeplessness. It considers all the possible explanations and guides us to better sleep and healthier life through the analysis of our sleep patterns and the probable causes of sleeplessness. It is extremely enjoyable and I do love the author’s sense of humor and frankness, for example: “First map: do you have insomnia? If not, you may consider reading something else.” The information is clear, easy to put into action, and valuable.
Your Sleep Map by Thad R Harshbarger is a comprehensive guide to everything related to sleep and sleeplessness. Insomnia is but a consequence, and Harshbarger, an experienced clinician, also provides us with an example of a basic sleep diary so that we can improve our methods of dealing with lack of sleep, and be efficient. All the steps are defined and explained thanks to the maps. The map system allows you to pick and choose which chapters to read, and which content to focus on to be effective. I found it to be concise, which will be appreciated as busy, tired people usually run out of time to read self-help books. We find useful and practical suggestions, while everything is analyzed in-depth, including the effects of sleep medication, melatonin, and herbal preparations. It also deals with what we may have already tried and why it did not work. Great advice, information, and explanations. I warmly recommend this extraordinary guide!
