Overview

The some 50 published epidemiological studies on sleep reveal almost nothing about the distribution of either insomnia or normal sleep, charge these researchers from the universities of Tennessee and Memphis, because they are methodologically tortured and virtually ignore normal sleepers. Their own study collected two weeks of sleep diaries and daytime functioning questionnaires from 772 randomly selected residents of the Memphis area, ranging in age from 20 to 98, equally divided by men and women, and about 30% African American. They document the study and report their conclusions. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
