Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 435. Reviews the book, The sleeping pill by Ernest Hartmann (1978). This is a relatively brief book written by an authority on sleep disorders and sleep research, and is a forthright account of sleep disorders, current drug therapies for sleeplessness, deficiencies in present treatments, and new possibilities for treatment of certain insomnias. The author presents a lot of interesting information about the frequency of prescriptions for sleeplessness, what common hypnotic medications do to our patterns of sleep, summaries of various experimental findings, and studies of different medications and their effects on sleep.
