Many sleep disorder centers simply handed copies of this book to parents who had children who would not stay asleep. A problem Dr. Ferber deals with is the child who wakes up at night and finds he or she is alone in an environment that might be hostile "Daddy there's something in my room!" The problem is particularly bad if the child has fallen asleep in daddy's arms or an arm chair. He discovered a method that seemed to work like magic. It was based on sound psychology. Others have tried to improve on the method. It still helps to read Dr. Ferber's book as a foundation for their less thorough approaches. Richard Ferber founded what was probably the first clinic concerned with children's sleep problems. The experience he brings to his book probably surpasses that of anyone else. It's well worth its price to any parent who has the problem the book addresses!
