Reviews - What do customers think about Snoring and Sleep Apnea: Sleep Well, Feel Better?
Great Book Mar 27, 2008
I was recently diagnosed with having sleep apnea and since that time I have read every book that I can on the subject. This book is excellent and very informative for anyone who has sleep apnea and wants to learn all that they can about it.
apnea Sep 24, 2007
I have been diagnosed with apnea and use a CPAP. I bought four books to gain a deeper insight into my condition. While informative this book does not cover the subject nearly as well as Sleep Apnea - Phantom of the Night. I would not recommend purchase of this book.
Great info - where did they get the pictures?! Aug 3, 2007
Great information, well conveyed. One of the authors is a sufferer; the other is the spouse of a snorer so they know of what they speak. Couldn't help but marvel at the grainy, awful, poor resolution pictures that look like they came from a 1960 science book. I guess the small circulation / audience doesn't justify using current technolgy.
Very helpful and I would buy it again.
not what I needed Jun 26, 2006
I bought this book because it purported to have a chapter on alternative therapies. The chapter was absolutely useless and insulting to those of us who consider acupuncture and other complimentary medicine before jumping into prescriptions and invasive medical devises. The book was worthless to me. I threw it away.
Excellent book! Nov 6, 2004
Snoring and Sleep Apnea provides a thorough coverage of sleep studies and the use of the CPAP machine. It even offers drugs that can make sleep apnea worse - something not usually mentioned. Chapter 16 offers ideas on Alternative Medicine and Sleep Apnea which is also a topic that is rarely addressed. It discusses alternative medicine in a positive way while still warning the reader and suggesting some basic "rules of thumb" when investigating different treatments.
