Description

We're supposed to spend one-third of our lives sleeping. But today a shortage of sleep—and of the right kind of sleep—is undermining our productivity, relationships, and health. Sleep problems can contribute to diseases such as hypertension, heart disease, depression, and diabetes, and they add stress to our already hectic lives. In Sleep to Save Your Life, noted sleep expert Gerard T. Lombardo, M.D., reveals the science behind these problems and what to do about them. As director of one of New York City's busiest sleep centers, Dr. Lombardo works with the sleep problems of executives, shift workers, women, children, and the elderly in "the city that never sleeps." He offers detailed strategies for getting the best treatment—and the best sleep—possible.
