About the Author

He has also sat on the boards of the European Sleep Research Society and the US Sleep Research Society. He is the author of four books, including Learn to Sleep Well (Watkins).
"Lazy college kids may claim to be experts when it comes to sleep, but they've got nothing on Idzikowski and his decidedly wide-eyed and active exploration of the Land of Nod ... Accessible, informative, and light enough to read in bed ... this guide will get readers dozing in no time."
