Product Details


Praise for Dr. Aric A. Prather and The Sleep Prescription
The Sleep Prescription is designed to help you figure out exactly what’s troubling your sleep. Prather . . . takes us beyond anodyne tips like ‘turn off your phone’ and digs into the way our body responds to all of the various factors that make up our lives over the course of a given week. For each of seven days, the book guides you to focus on one aspect of building a good sleep routine, paying attention to how your mind works in concert with your body and the sleep habits you’ve built over your lifetime. . . . The Sleep Prescription is the first book that showed me it’s possible to understand the science behind it, and find a way to unlock those perfect, restful hours.”
—The Boston Globe

“Science-backed tips for sounder sleep.”
—The New York Times

“The vastly knowledgeable and genuinely brilliant Dr. Aric Prather can take detailed scientific concepts and distill them into wondrous bite-size chunks, digestible to all. An easy yet most effective how-to guide on sleep.”
—Dr. Matthew Walker, New York Times bestselling author of Why We Sleep and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science, University of California, Berkeley
“Deceptively simple and refreshingly straightforward, The Sleep Prescription is an immediately useful guide to getting better sleep. Aric Prather is an internationally-recognized scientific authority on sleep health and his advice can help just about any­one sleep more restfully in just a week.”
—Dr. Michael Grandner, director of the Sleep and Health Research Program, University of Arizona College of Medicine
The Sleep Prescription is a practical guide to improving your sleep and enhancing your life. Prather offers a set of transfor­mative and doable changes in sleep habits that can make you healthier, happier, and more productive.”
—Tom Boyce, MD, author of The Orchid and the Dandelion
The Sleep Prescription is a game changer. It’s an original and ef­fective take on how we sleep and why so many of us struggle to do it well. A must-have for anyone looking to improve their wak­ing life by fixing their sleeping one.”
—Dr. Sara Mednick, author of The Power of The Downstate and Take a Nap! Change Your Life.

“Through a series of seven sensible steps, Dr. Prather guides us to relearn what our bodies and brains already know: we can use our voluntary, waking behaviors to influence the involuntary, restorative process of sleep.”
—Dr. Daniel Buysse, director of the Center for Sleep and Circadian Science, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
