If you're having trouble getting to sleep, staying asleep, or getting restful, restorative sleep, I have 12 books about sleep to help you get the rest you need. No matter whether your problem is insomnia or nightmares, the books on the list below can help you cure what's ailing you.
A variety of issues and conditions exist under the umbrella term of "sleep disorders." These include insomnia, sleep apnea, night terrors, and sleep paralysis, among many other conditions. According to the American Sleep Apnea Association, there are more than 80 different sleep disorders, and more than 50 million Americans experience them every year.
As you can see, sleep disorders are quite common. I occasionally experience hypnagogic hallucinations: visual, auditory, and tactile sensations that jolt me out of the early part of my sleep cycle. Even a condition like mine — which, in my experience, few people have ever heard of — may be experienced by up to 25 percent of all people, according to the American Sleep Association.
If you or your partner is having trouble sleeping, or if you're itching to find out what a recurring dream means for your life, check out the 12 books about sleep on the list below for answers.
