- Universal Magazine

'The book focuses on some treatment with a strong evidence base, such as bright light therapy, sleep hygiene and CBT, and also looks at pharmacological approaches... the resources section has very specific advice on what type of supplement to use and when to use them and has some information on different types of meditation... I found the book an enlightening read...The depth that the author went into when discussing treatments and techniques to use was refreshing, and the book was well structured.'
- British Sleep Society's Newsletter

'One of the main things I enjoyed about this book is the integrated approach [it] takes... The text offers a practical, self-help programme including relaxation, the use of bright light and darkness, diet, sleep hygiene and the management of mental tension. [It] also presents a safe way to come off sleeping tablets. As a healthcare professional who works with sleep issues, I am always mindful of an approach which gives the client the self-care tools first before withdrawing sleep medication and this book does that. The programme is designed to be implemented over several weeks and provides a solid presentation of techniques.'
- Laurel Alexander, Complementary Therapist, Tutor and Author

'Peter Smith provides you with information on all areas of sleep, from understanding it to restoring a healthy sleep cycle. This book also inhabits the perfect step-by-step guide on how to overcome sleep issues such as insomnia and jet lag. Peter Smith certainly has "the-sleep-solution" and can teach anyone suffering from lack of sleep how to correct, maintain and prevent sleeping problems.'
- The Journal of the Association of Natural Medicine

'Peter Smith has not only addressed all the usual causes of sleep disorder... but he has also considered the conventional medical causes and orthodox treatments... All in all a masterly exposition and it is hard to think of anything more that might be added... the majority of readers will find it an invaluable aid in dealing with sleeping problems without recourse to prescription drugs.'
