Gayle Greene offers a uniquely comprehensive account of the devastating and little-understood condition of insomnia. From interviews with neurologists, sleep researchers, doctors, psychotherapists, and insomniacs of all sorts comes an up-to-date account of what is known about insomnia, providing the information every insomniac needs to know to make intelligent choices among medications and therapies. Insomniac is at once a field guide through the hidden terrain inhabited by insomniacs and a book of consolations for anyone who has struggled with this affliction that has long been trivialized and neglected.
