For readers enticed by Arianna Huffington's The Sleep Revolution but looking for the medical evidence to support its claims, two doctors have incorporated the latest research into a guide designed to help insomniacs get sleepy.

"For insomniacs who don't want a cosmetic solution, this guide digs deeper, and is likely to get better, more permanent results." —Kirkus Reviews on The Insomnia Answer

Good sleep is an elusive goal: the harder you try to fall asleep, the less likely you are to be successful. Insomnia is stoked by different habits, schedules, stresses, beliefs, and even personality types—but there is no single pill or therapy to reverse it. Sleep cannot be forced—ultimately, it must come to you.

While insomnia treatments can set the stage, the best thing a person can do to ready themselves for sleep is “getting sleepy.” This practical, easy-to-follow guide written by two founding experts in behavioral sleep medicine will help you achieve one of the most important parts of staying healthy: a good night's rest. Taking into account the particular challenges that stand in your way to better sleep, Glovinsky and Spielman:

- Discuss changes you can make to your daily routines to induce sleepiness
- Walk you through applying standard cognitive behavioral treatments
- Introduce new, promising interventions for managing anxiety, depression, an out-of-sync biological clock, dependence on medication, and more

True sleepiness is the only reliable portal to sleep. You Are Getting Sleepy will guide you there.
