Sadler addresses how to reduce dependence on sleeping pills, determine the amount of sleep you truly need, and, most important, how to retrain yourself to sleep soundly. She provides a two-week sleep diary and shows step-by-step how to identify and analyze any underlying daytime and pre-bedtime habits that can disturb sleep.

By revealing the keys to quality, drug-free sleep, A Good Night’s Sleep enables you to reclaim control of your sleep cycle and your life.
