Published Reviews

    "This is an updated edition of the authoritative and comprehensive book on sleep medicine that is generally considered the bible in the field. As a textbook, it will be useful to trainees in the field of sleep medicine whether they are medical students, residents or sleep fellows. It will also benefit those in other specialties traditionally linked to sleep medicine such as pulmonary medicine, neurology, psychiatry, pediatrics, ENT, obstetrics and women's health, endocrinology, and cardiology. This book remains a valuable contribution to the field."
