Tonight, seventy million Americans will battle insomnia. They will plump pillows, rehash arguments, fold laundry, take sleeping pills, watch TV. They'll seek sleep but not find it. According to the National Sleep Foundation, up to a third of all Americans suffer from occasional or chronic wakefulness. Prescriptions for sleeping pills have increased 60% in six years, even though recent medical research (Journal of American Medicine, June 2006) shows that behavioral therapies such as Restful Insomnia are more effective for sleeplessness than pills.

The Restful Insomnia five-part program is easy to make a part of each night's rest by offering techniques that help the sleep-deprived to accept insomnia, befriend the night, and greet the morning refreshed.

Restful Insomnia shows readers how to end the war with sleeplessness by learning to use their waking night hours to quiet the mind, replenish their inner creativity, and relax deeply -- deriving many benefits of sleep.

* 70 million Americans battle insomnia each night.

* Recent medical research shows that behavioral therapies such as Restful Insomnia are more effective for sleeplessness than sleeping pills.
