Private Myths: Dreams and Dreaming
Every night we enter a mythic realm, a dark, primordial world of fear and desire. What this world offers, Anthony Stevens suggests, may well be the key to understanding our waking mysteries - ourselves, our society, and our history. A prominent psychiatrist and practicing Jungian analyst, Stevens views dreaming from both psychological and neurological perspectives to show how dreams owe their origins as much to our evolutionary history as a species as to our personal history as individuals.
A work rich in symbolic and scientific insight, Private Myths traverses the course of dream interpretation from distant hunter-gatherer times to the present. This analysis is as authoritative as it is wide-ranging, including discussions of the biology of dreaming and the discovery of REM sleep, elaboration of the latest neuroscientific techniques in sleep research, and an assessment of the century-long legacy of analytic practice to dream interpretation. In a close look at the actual processes of dream formation, Stevens relates "dream work" to other creative capacities such as language, poetry, storytelling, memory, play, symptom-formation, magic, and ritual. He draws on his many years of experience to analyze key historical dreams, such as Freud's dream of Irma's injection and Hitler's dream of being buried alive, and enriches this discussion with analyses of his own and his patients' dreams.
Remarkable in its breadth, Private Myths makes the principles of dream interpretation accessible to scientists, the findings of dream science accessible to analysts, and the discoveries of both available to anyone intrigued by the mysteries of dreams and dreaming....

The Insomnia Solution : The Natural, Drug-Free Way to a Good Night's Sleep
Book DescriptionInsomnia. It?s a nearly universal affliction that keeps millions of Americans up at night. But now there?s help: Michael Krugman?s Sounder Sleep System?. In this revolutionary book, Krugman shows readers that insomnia is not just a nighttime affliction, but a 24-hour-a-day condition resulting from daytime stress that persists into the night, delaying the onset of sleep and making it shallower and less restful.
To relieve stress and ensure sounder sleep, Krugman offers a two-pronged program of gentle, physical techniques, called mini-moves?, based on traditional and modern self-healing methods. Brief, daytime mini-moves offset stress and make life more peaceful?the perfect prelude to sounder sleep. Nighttime mini-moves, done while lying quietly in bed, make it easy to fall asleep at bedtime and to recover from unwanted awakenings later in the night.
Readers can personalize the plan, which consists of a combination of 18 mini-moves. Presented in a profusely illustrated, step-by-step format that makes learning fun and effective, THE INSOMNIA SOLUTION will help millions of readers to sleep easier....

She takes on sleep from every angle, exploring the latest science on sleep, the manipulative and dangerous sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep.

Why We Sleep
Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our life, health and longevity and yet it is increasingly neglected in twenty-first-century society, with devastating consequences: every major disease in the developed world - Alzheimer's, cancer, obesity, diabetes - has very strong causal links to deficient sleep. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why its absence is so damaging to our health. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive. Now, in this book, the first of its kind written by a scientific expert, Professor Matthew Walker explores twenty years of cutting-edge research to solve the mystery of why sleep matters. Looking at creatures from across the animal kingdom as well as major human studies, Why We Sleep delves in to everything from what really happens during REM sleep to how caffeine and alcohol affect sleep and why our sleep patterns change across a lifetime, transforming our appreciation of the extraordinary phenomenon that safeguards our existence....
