Hello Sleep: The Science and Art of Overcoming Insomnia Without Medications – by Dr. Jade Wu

We’ve reviewed other sleep books before, so what makes this one stand out?

Mostly, it’s because this one takes quite a different approach.

While still giving a nod to the sensible advice you’ve already read in many places (including here at 10almonds), Dr. Wu looks to help the reader avoid falling into the trap (or: help the reader get out of the trap, if already there) of focussing so much on getting better sleep that it becomes an all-consuming stressor that takes up much of the day thinking about it, and guess what, much of the night too, because you’re busy working out how sleep-deprived you’re going to be tomorrow.

Instead, Dr. Wu recommends to work with your body rather than against it, worry less, and ultimately sleep better. Of course, the “how” of this is what makes most of the book.

She does also give chapters on things that may be different for you, based on such things as hormones, age, or medical conditions.

The writing style is pop-science but with frequent references to scientific papers as appropriate, making good science very accessible.

Bottom line: if you’ve tried everything else and/but good sleep still eludes you, this book will help you to end the battle and make friends with your sleep (a metaphor the author uses throughout the book, by the way).
