This reformed insomniac says, buy it
This book worked brilliantly for me. It got me sleeping well right away and I know I’m not going to relapse. For a lifelong insomniac, that’s a worth the cover price and all the available stars. It is the most glorious and novel experience to regularly wake up feeling refreshed and rested and go through the day without drowsiness. I’m immensely grateful.

Good Practical Book That Helps Get To Grips With Insomnia. - Recommended!
I found this book really nice to read, in fact it’s the first “Kindle” book I’ve read on my new Fire HDX 8.9″. The quality of writing is good, if you’ve bought this title because you’re having problems with Insomnia (as I have) it’s likely that some of the stuff within the pages you already know. However, I found the “Five Step Programme” unique in that it actually approaches the issue practically, and doesn’t spend to many pages explaining what the causes are or why you’re experiencing the problem but gets down to trying to address the Insomnia problem.
Would I recommend this? Yes! Why? Because, unlike some “Self Help books” endlessly go on about ” the “Psychology” of the problem it aims to help you practically solve the problem. I’ve not finished the book yet but so far it has made an improvement to my sleep issues. I am still on Prescription Sleeping Tablets (Zopiclone) so be interesting to see if the book helps me sleep without needing them.

A life changer for anxiety related insomnia
This book is a life changer for people who suffer with anxiety-related sleep disorder. The author is very action focused and his advise and ideas are highly motivational. Within days of reading his book, I knew that I’d finally found the answer. The images he uses, especially his “Olympic Podium” of sleep are just brilliant and can put even the most hardened, skeptical insomniac back on track.

Saved My Life
I developed insomnia in 2008 and suffered from it for the next 6 years. It utterly ruined my life, damaging relationships, my academic career, my social skills and most other aspects of day to day living. I tried almost everything, including CBT, but nothing seemed to work for longer than a few days. This book made the difference. For the last 6 months I’ve been sleeping well, and I know if insomnia does occasionally return then I don’t get stressed because I know how to accept it and ultimately deal with it. Long term insomnia is horrendous and this book is the best treatment approach I’ve come across, I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I listened to the audio version. After trying any kind of supplement, sleeping pill, relaxation technique this has been the only real cure to my anxiety related insomnia.

If you don't even know what a normal sleeper is like I didn't
This book has turned me into a “normal sleeper” after at least a decade of believing I had to live with sleepless nights for the rest of my life. If you don’t even know what a normal sleeper is like I didn’t, you must get this book.

I loved the illustrations - I went and got the app ...
Sleeping without sleeping pills…and tolerating insomnia without sleeping pills. The first book to actually help me night after night. I loved the illustrations – I went and got the app – and immediately recognised myself. I have happily thrown away my lavender beanbag cat and other night time props that were cluttering my bedside. I hadn’t realised how much I’d come to hate going to bed after struggling with insomnia for such a long time – and that more relaxation, milky drinks or yoga were feeling like a prison sentence. This was the first book about sleep that really didn’t say all the same old stuff and leave me feeling as though I should try even harder to get to sleep. The first night when I relaxed and dozed off without any props felt like a miracle. It isn’t a cake walk – tolerating tired feelings in the day and giving up on unrealistic expectations are hard for me. I refer back to the book and app to get back on track when needed. Setbacks have been useful to see how far I’ve come along.

I’ve had insomnia for 20 odd years and had tried hypnosis, cherry extract, valerian, lavender, melatonin, Zopiclone, Retimer glasses etc. and only Zopiclone helped me sleep for short periods of time. Eventually Zopiclone losses it’s effect and often makes the condition worse. I read this book as an introduction before enrolling in The Sleep School’s workshop for insomnia. However, I have not needed to enrol, for the past 2 weeks or so, since reading The Sleep Book, I have slept almost every night for at least 6 to 7 hours. It took a week practising the exercises before I was sleeping through the night and I’m still nervous the condition will return. However, if my insomnia does return I will attend a workshop to help embed The Sleep School philosophy more permanently.

I feel optimistic that it will have a very positive effect on my sleep patterns. What I especially like about it is that it is so full of commonsense. Synopsising it in my own words has also helped. Already by ” Week Three” the anticipatory anxiety I tended to experience at bedtime has greatly diminished, I truly believe that I will recover the kind of sleep I enjoyed for most of my life – maybe I already have! Thank you Dr Meadows.

Sincere thanks from (hopefully) ex-worrywart
I can be a bit of an ‘evangelist’ when I find an answer, so I’m being careful here. After suffering from insomnia for over 15 years I didn’t think it could be so easy to overcome as I’ve tried almost everything. Having read reviews in a newspaper I downloaded the app (£2.99). I then decided I wanted more info, so downloaded the book and after reading it I’m very pleased I did. A few chapters in and I understood myself much better. I was amazed to notice how many useless, worry thoughts were popping into my head almost non stop. I’ve always been a bit of a worrywart and when trying to sleep thoughts continually go round my head, repeating themselves over and over to no avail. This way of dealing with insomnia has made me sleep much better, more relaxed – which continues through the day. 2 weeks in I still wake up, but go back to sleep easily. I now practice the exercises with the app daily, but not after 2pm as it can make me nod off!

At Last, A Powerfully, Beautifully and Logically Presented Step-by-Step Plan that Offers Hope to Many
Dr Guy Meadows is a great communicator, and this self-guided programme is presented in a way that inspires optimism and hope. A consummate speaker, Dr Meadows has succeeded in translating his extensive knowledge of mindfulness principles, the new interests in ‘acceptance-based’ psychology, and plain common sense into this handy book format.
Whether you struggle occasionally with the odd sleepless night or have suffered for years, the principles laid out in this easy-to-follow plan offer both mindset and strategy in equal measure. This book is so much more than a thesis on the horrible struggle so many of us have faced; it’s a ‘call-to-arms’ for those who assume they’ve tried just about everything.
Straight-talking, no-nonsense, and yet sensitive to your probable apprehension to this ‘think-outside-the-box’ approach — this is indeed the book to get hold of, if nothing else has managed to fit the bill on a longer-term basis. Be patient, be mindful and be open-minded as you learn the secrets of a good night’s sleep. It’s good that this book has been corrected so that all Kindle formats read it correctly; I’m more old-fashioned; I’m tucked in with the paper copy, so I can read my many scribbles and notes.

A Great Help
I found the book very helpful. I am a very analytical person and I have spent many long night-time hours struggling to understand how my insomnia was triggered, why it leaves me but comes back with vengeance and why I can’t control it despite having no serious worries. The book explained all this and now I understand what is going on in my head. This is a great start in working towards better sleep.

heard him on the radio
I have had trouble sleeping for over a year .my friend told me about guy been on the radio so with nothing to lose I tuned in not only did he speak alot of sense but I felt he really understood my problem .so I downloaded his book , am now on week 2 can;t say I am sleeping through the night yet but it’s defintley working as now having at least 5 hours and when I do wake up I’m not stressing about it . So all in all I would recommend this book
susie q - Amazon - 18 April 2014
This is the latest in a line of get me to sleep help articles, saw it advertised in a daily newspaper. A lot of good sense, interesting, Dr. Meadows changed his views and advice on suffering a period of insomnia himself. Have started to try it out, (I actually work nights which complicates things further) He does want shooting though for saying if a hot flush wakes you up, just lay there and ignore it, I would like to see him try! I would recomend it to anyone with plenty of time, you need to read the book through several times, and it is a 5 weeks programme

Dr Guy what a guy!!!
Excellent logical and easy to follow couldn’t recommend Dr Guy enough !
Being mindful is the way to go and not only has it made sleep better but has improved many other aspects of my personality
B Bennett - Amazon - 7 April 2014
I attended Guy’s Sleep School a month ago and followed up by purchasing his book. I must say I was quite sceptical at first during the sleep school session, but as time went on during the day, I became more and more convinced that his methods could possibly work!! I have found the book very helpful as it confirms all and more that Guy covered in the daily session. I can actually say that I have purchased the book for my son and am about to purchase another copy for a friend. I know Guy said this was no easy fix and I appreciate that but I can also say that I have already felt some improvement in my sleep pattern so THANKS GUY.

The Sleep Book
I attended one of Dr Guy’s sleep courses which worked brilliantly for me, so much so that after 2 years I threw away the notes that went with the course. After a few stressful events, my sleepless came back, so I bought this book knowing that the strategies in it really do work. I find the style so sympathtic and the methods really effective. I keep the book handy to remind me of the mindfulness exercises to practice so that I can keep on track with my sleep. This book realy does work and I have already recommended Dr Guy to friends who have sleep problems.

Thank you Dr Guy Meadows
This is a very good book. Its clearly set out, discusses the relevant issues to Insomnia and I learned a lot about why problems arise. I have found in the last week that my fear of sleeping has diminished and I am using the Mindfulness skills in the book very well. One of the best books I have read on this subject – and I have read a few!!
Angela Marston - Amazon - 28 Mar. 2014
The book does everything it says on the cover
I’m sure i’m no different to many people who for one reason or another can’t get a good nights sleep, either have trouble getting to sleep, or wake up i the night, then can’t get back to sleep.
Also have tried many over the counter remedies, and some obscure concoctions, legal or not.
Well after reading Dr Guy’s sleep book its so obvious what a waste of time money and energy these attempts through the use of “drugs” were.
The system he uses, “mindfulness” works, for Me 100%.
You must try it, it worked almost right away for me, perhaps i’m a willing patient.
What ever you do please read the whole book.
Don’t give up, its absolutely worth it.

The only thing that works
Having read and tried everything else on the market to try and cure my insomnia this book was a godsend. I did go to see Dr Meadows once and together with The Sleep Book which consolidated all that he asked me to do I am now sleeping well once again. Thank you Dr Meadows for giving me my life back
Julie Bennett - Amazon - 22 Mar. 2014
Great book for combating insomnia using revolutionary approach pioneered by leading sleep physiologist Dr Guy Meadows and is the result of several years experience in successfully treating clients at his clinic. The mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Techniques (ACT) are easier and less gruelling to implement than traditional CBT methods and in my experience so far, more effective. The 5-step plan teaches you how to stop struggling with your insomnia, get back to sleeping better and start living your life again. It doesn’t pretend to be a quick fix but even after using the techniques for just a short while, I’m already sleeping better. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone with sleeping difficulties.

A refreshing new approach to insomnia
As a clinician working with individuals who experience sleep difficulties and also being a sufferer of insomnia myself I welcomed Guy Meadows’ approach using ACT for insomnia. Instead of continuously telling people the do’s and don’ts of sleep, this approach helps people change their relationship with sleep difficulties. It does this by asking you to focus on what’s important to you and stop fighting with sleep problems, instead embracing them (and even welcoming them into bed with you!). The Sleep School App and The Sleep Book have both been extremely in assisting myself and my clients to address sleep difficulties. I particularly like the mindfulness exercises, the quiz and the helpful way you can monitor your progress. I would definitely recommend this to clinicians and sufferers of sleep difficulties.
Emma O’Donoghue – iTunes – 22 September 2014
A great addition to the book
I bought this app after reading the book – so great to have all the tools whilst on the move. Just been away on holiday and never normally sleep. The app helped me to not panic and ended up sleeping like a baby. Highly recommended.
Zandar123 - iTunes – 5 September 2014
This has helped me no end to stop worrying so much about not sleeping. The tools do work and in the last four months it has helped me. I now have the book and using these together. It’s not cured it yet but the improvement is amazing.

The Sleep School
Terrific new app for combating insomnia, based on revolutionary new approach pioneered by leading sleep physiologist Dr Guy Meadows. The mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Techniques (ACT) are far easier and less gruelling to implement than traditional CBT methods and in my experience more effective. The 5-step plan uses a carefully designed, informative yet playful approach, to teach you how to stop struggling with your insomnia, start sleeping naturally again and getting your life back. I’ve been using the techniques for just over a week and am already sleeping better.
I’d highly recommend this app, (which is a great accompaniment to Dr Guy Meadows’ excellent book “The Sleep Book – How to Sleep Well Every Night) to anyone battling with insomnia.
