Can't Sleep, Can't Stay Awake coverIt’s the lament of sleep-deprived women everywhere, as they juggle family, work, chores, and social lives. Sleep disorders are not only more likely to affect women—often more severely—than men, but women are also more often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because their symptoms may differ from men’s.

Now, in a groundbreaking primer, Dr. Kryger, an internationally recognized sleep researcher and clinician, gives new hope to tired women everywhere. He reveals:

– Why insomnia is more prevalent in women and how to treat it

– Why 80% of pregnant women have disturbed sleep

– How menopause can lead to breathing problems during sleep, and how to treat them

– How to recognize sleep problems in family members

– How to juggle life’s responsibilities and still protect sleep time
