Review quote

Comprehensive, easy to read, and up-to-date, the Clinical Handbook of Insomnia considers the disorder broadly and multiperspectivally, helping the practicing health care provider to identify the problem early on and to recognize its underlying cause, so that the most efficacious treatment can be formulated and prescribed. The Clinical Handbook of Insomnia will be of interest and use to all practicing health care providers and should be in all major hospital and medical school libraries. E-STREAMS This is a very useful and easy to read update that clinicians can use in daily practice as a quick reference. The book is written in a practical, user-friendly format differentiating itself from other books in this field. The authors clearly have met their objectives by providing a worthwhile contribution. - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journalshow more
