A new, comprehensive approach to improving our sleep, from the expert sleep clinician.
“How to Sleep rewrites the ‘rules’ of sleep for consumers who realize that sleep hygiene isn’t enough. The book goes far beyond sleep hygiene and tackles issues such as the causes of snoring, treating transient and chronic insomnia, combating jet lag, and how lifestyle choices impact sleep.” —Sleep Review
“Easy to read and comprehensive. This book offers real practical guidance.” —Matthew Walker, PhD, bestselling author of Why We Sleep
“This concise but comprehensive book covers all the aspects of normal and abnormal sleep with which we should be familiar. Everyone should read this book.” —William C. Dement, M.D., Ph.D, bestselling author of The Promise of Sleep
“Want to learn how to optimize your sleep? You’re unlikely to find a clearer or more up-to-date guide than this book by Dr. Pelayo.” —David Eagleman, neuroscientist, New York Times bestselling author, and creator and host of PBS’s The Brain
“Before reading this book, I thought of myself as a sleep aficionado, but Dr. Pelayo showed me just how many misconceptions I had. How to Sleep taught me that snoring is never normal, about the seriousness and pervasiveness of sleep apnea, and much more. These misunderstandings affect us all—this comforting and confidence-building book should be mandatory reading.” —Ed Catmull, cofounder of Pixar and author of Creativity, Inc.
“Dr. Pelayo cleverly and thoroughly explains the biology of sleep and strategies we can all use to improve our quality of life and maintain optimal health through better sleep.” —Richard K. Bogan, MD, chairman of the National Sleep Foundation
“Dr. Pelayo has condensed his vast knowledge and years of experience into a quick, interesting, and captivating must-read book. He offers guidance on sleeping well, the causes of sleep disturbance (including sleep disorders, diet, and medicine), and managing sleep issues in both adults and children.” —Kannan Ramar, MD, sleep medicine specialist at the Mayo Clinic
Rafael Pelayo, MD, is a clinical professor at Stanford University School of Medicine in the division of Sleep Medicine. Since 1993 he has been a part of the Stanford Sleep Medicine Clinic, the best-known sleep clinic in the world, and he divides his time between working with patients and teaching at the university. He has served on advisory boards and in leadership positions for the National Center on Sleep Disorders Research at the NIH, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the National Sleep Foundation, and the California Sleep Society. He has lectured nationally and internationally and has appeared frequently in national media, including NPR, The Ronn Owens Report, Frontline, the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN.com, San Francisco Chronicle, LA Times, Health.com, and Self.com. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife, who is also a sleep medicine physician (their children grew up sleeping well!).
