Throughout the book, advice is provided to help adults to sleep effectively with extra coverage included for those at particular risk of sleep problems, such as shift workers, and parents of young children. Case studies are included to illustrate how adults with various sleep disorders ahve been correctly diagnosed and treated, and 'Myths vs. Facts' boxes help sort the valuable information from the misleading.
