"Colleen Carney and Rachel Manber clearly understand the broad domain of insomnia and the suffering it causes. Their book reflects the authors’ deep knowledge of sleep medicine and their experience treating hundreds of insomnia sufferers. It will no doubt help millions more as it clearly explains not only what to do, but also why. I sincerely wish Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep had been available sooner."
—William C. Dement, MD, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and sleep medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine and author of The Promise of Sleep
"People with insomnia have been told for years that insomnia will go away if they get treatment for depression, anxiety, or pain, and this often does not happen. What is needed is a straightforward practical guide to solving their sleep issues, and these two leading experts in comorbid insomnias deliver. Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep is sensitive to the types of challenges faced by people with complicated health issues while taking a no-nonsense approach to eliminating the factors known to perpetuate sleep problems. The chapters and worksheets are interactive—it is like having access to your own therapist. This is a timely and truly essential book for anyone who suffers from insomnia and those who love them."
—Jack D. Edinger, Ph.D., CBSM, clinical professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Duke University Medical Center and senior psychologist at Durham VA Medical Center
"Carney and Manber have written an incredibly useful guide book for individuals with insomnia, especially insomnia that occurs with depression, pain, and anxiety. It is full of practical strategies and tools for self-care, clearly explained, with great examples from real insomnia sufferers. Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep walks you through all the key elements of behavioral treatment that you would get from a sleep specialist. I will definitely recommend it to my patients with insomnia."

Dr. Rachel Manber’s new book Quiet Your Mind and Get to Sleep is the next best thing one can do after travelling to Stanford University to receive her insomnia therapy. She is a one of the world’s experts in insomnia research and a master of creating personalized, creative, and effective treatment plans for insomnia. Her methods go above and beyond the usual don’t read in bed techniques and translate into results. This book is important because education is a key component to treating insomnia.
