Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a sleeping disorder that affects millions of people but which has only recently come to widespread public attention. Fortunately, an effective therapy called continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) can treat it. Simply blowing air into people's noses at night gives them new, improved rest and silences their characteristic snoring.

Overview

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a sleeping disorder that affects millions of people but which has only recently come to widespread public attention. Fortunately, an effective therapy called continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) can treat it. Simply blowing air into people's noses at night gives them new, improved rest and silences their characteristic snoring.

Unfortunately, the adjustment period for this therapy is not of short duration, and most people give up in the early stages, before they can reap maximum, if any, benefit. Who can blame them? They must admit to snoring and then wade through a morass of tests and insurance red tape, all to obtain the pleasure of wearing a not-so-form-fitting mask every night-one guaranteed to thwart alien abductions.

Author Mike Moran, who also suffers from Obstructive Sleep Apnea, offers a comforting and humorous resource for everyone dealing with the difficulties of this disorder-and its treatment. This Book Blows is for all the true "hose heads" who need to know they aren't alone in their quest for a good night's sleep!

I thought that this book would have stories of support from people who have sleep apnea or typical problems of first-time CPAP users (along with solutions), but this book is filled with corny jokes, ads, and short stories the author deems humorous. I wouldn't recommend this book.
