Item description for The Secret Language of Sleep: A Couple's Guide by Amelia Bauer Evany Thomas...

Some couples wonder if they have the mettle for a committed relationship, or the momentum for long-distance love, or the reflexes for fighting crime. Unsure couples waste years looking for answers in each other's eyes, or in the offices of behavioral therapists. And yet, each night their sleeping bodies reveal more than any doctor or private detective could ever discover.

With this book, a couple can unlock the meaningof their chosen pose. All thirty-nine poses (including Classic Spoons, the Tobogganer, and Softserve Swirl) come with easy-to-identify illustrations, detailed descriptions, and training tips. Handy icons indicate which positions are most therapeutic for snorers, outdoorsmen, orthose who work on their feet.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Secret Language of Sleep: A Couple's Guide?

Pillow talks  Feb 8, 2007
A great book to keep on your bed stand that promises a lot of laughter. The book is simple but fun...
An amusing addition to the bedside table  Jan 10, 2007
While reasonably entertaining, there's a definite lack of content in this book. It offers little explanation of the author's reasoning (there wasn't any introduction describing any sort of background). It's very pretty, though.
Serious and a Parody at the Same Time  Aug 5, 2006
At first glance, this book looks like a parody of the many sex positions books on the market...and on one hand, it is just that. The text that accompanies each of the well illustrated images of couples (both opposite sex and same sex couples are used) is written with an eye towards recreating the same type of pseudo intimate language used by sex position books, which makes it a delightfully funny book in its own right.

But, beyond the parody, this book actually does delve into couple dynamics and how these dynamics are represented by the way we sleep - actually sleep - together. And, it pays attention to some of the details that couples may have missed themselves when thinking about how they sleep together; throughout the book, there are examples of the way touch in our sleep. Even when we are separated by distance in many of our sleep poses, there is the presence of touch if only through the touch of toe to toe or back to back.

I highly recommend this book for couples as way to understand AND laugh at the way they sleep together. And, as another reviewer suggested, Cliffhangers should get one for each side of the bed.


A Guide to my Book Rating System:

1 star = The wood pulp would have been better utilized as toilet paper.
2 stars = Don't bother, clean your bathroom instead.
3 stars = Wasn't a waste of time, but it was time wasted.
4 stars = Good book, but not life altering.
5 stars = This book changed my world in at least some small way.
The Sercret Lanuage of Sleep  Jun 30, 2006
I thought it was very interesting book. It gave you hints on how to improve you sleep habits as well as a understanding of what your sleep habits and sleep position tells about a person personality and emotions.
Laughing in my Sleep  Apr 25, 2006
The Secret Language of Sleep: A Couple's Guide to the Thirty-Nine Position is the Gibbon's History of the Roman Empire of sleeping position guidebooks. Every possible couple sleep position is covered in wonderfully designed detail (except for the taboo and sometimes painful Tongue-in-Cheek position, which is illegal in 45 states, anyway).

Yes, this cute little blue book is funny-- very funny-- but the more you read the more actual insights you'll discover. Well-written and beautifully illustrated, this handy guide should be on every couple''s bed side table (note: one for each side table for Cliffhanger couples).

I enjoyed it immensely and would recommend it to any of my friends who sleep or are considering sleeping in the future. And as a side bonus, this book could come in handy when trying to break up with a partner; simply find your preferred sleep position and explain how his or her position is not compatible with yours.
