Praise for BUDDHA’S BOOK OF SLEEP:

 
Winner of BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR from COVR (The Coalition of Visionary Resources)
 
“Emet’s book serves also as a fine introduction to the Buddha’s teachings, as well as to their application to the art of sleeping well. Readers may come to it attracted by its primary purpose. If they read attentively and follow the program of exercises with due patience, they will come away not only with changed sleeping habits, but changed lives.”
—Peter Clothier, Huffington Post
 
This small volume is based on his 15 years of teaching experience and the many questions and conversations with followers. It contains well-written prose for use as an exercise to coax the mind into calmness.”
—South China Morning Post
 
In this gift-sized, get-to-the-point book, Emet quickly moves the reader from “busy mind” into concentration, meditation, and contentment. The book is practical, easy to read, and realistic in its approach. Emet’s tone is comfortable and encouraging.”
—Retailing Insight
 
Buddha’s Book of Sleep is the first book to treat sleep disorders from the perspective of mindfulness meditation. Supplying readers with a new perspective on why they cannot fall asleep (even when they feel exhausted), and arming them with easy-to-use tools from the practices of mindfulness meditation, Buddha’s Book of Sleep will help the reader calm their hurried thoughts and rest easy.”
—The Best You
 
“This calming, mind-freeing book will teach you to awaken to mindfulness, thereby letting go of troubling patterns that prevent sleep. Words of wisdom, peaceful thoughts, and a seven week programme of Buddhist meditation and exercise will help  you to do just that! A lovely book, which would also make a great gift for the insomniac in your life!”
—Helio’s Homoepathy
