"...Dr Nejad's book "LIFEBLOCKERS - the Sleep Edition" is so
necessary and brilliant! She explains how to assess whether this is
something that affects you and then gives easy and practical ideas
about how to overcome it - all within a few easy to read pages that
doesn't feel overwhelming to the exhausted brain. To sweeten the
deal, Dr Nejad writes with an easy style and humour, without
dumbing-it-down, so you feel supported and cared for on the journey
to recovery." Artemiss Keyhani"LIFEBLOCKERS: The Sleep Edition is a
fantastic resource for people having sleep difficulties. It's
written in the format of a standalone self-help guide but as it's
based on evidence-based practice, I also find it is a very useful
adjunct to therapy. Dr. Nejad is able to put quality,
evidence-based material into an easy, accessible written format.
Her easygoing style makes this book very readable and I can (and
have) confidently recommended it to clients."
Dr Robyn Gallucci, Clinical PsychologistGreat content, to the point, and quick read - now time to implement! Great book that gets right to the point. Provides a variety of solutions and methods to go about your insomnia issue - some I've heard before, some I haven't (yay for new content!). Anything that'll improve my insomnia even a tad is worthwhile! What do you have to lose - it's a quick read, too. I'd recommend to a friend/family!" Nilda"LIFEBLOCKERS: The Sleep Edition is an extremely well-written guide providing the latest scientific, evidence-based techniques to restore healthy sleeping patterns across the full range of sleep problems. The book, in addition to being comprehensive and scientifically informed, is written in an engaging and easy to read style. It is an incredibly helpful resource for people wishing to improve their sleep." Dr. Kylie Thomson, Clinical Psychologist"LIFEBLOCKERS: The Sleep Edition is user-friendly and a very easy read. It is concise, clear and easily used as a quick desk reference for therapists. The Sleep Edition provides all the information you need about sleep, the routine necessary to enhance sleep, and how to manage sleep difficulties. It also provides log books with detailed instructions. I will use this book as a quick guide to loan to clients experiencing sleep difficulties but also even as a quick check that I have covered everything I need to have. Well worth your time." Dr. Julie King, Clinical Psychologist"I enjoyed this book about insomnia. Especially the detailed information about Melatonin. I have been taking Melatonin for many years and didn't know a lot of the things Lillian covered about it. The book was very easy to read and understand. It was very informative and I highly recommend it." Tanya Paquette"This book is extremely helpful. It provides everyday, practical tips for battling insomnia without resorting to temporary fixes such as medication or supplements. And cheddar cheese -- who knew?!?" Christopher Harne"Best book I've read for insomnia. Recommend it highly." Hani
