Dr. Jacobs's insomnia program achieves its remarkable results because it is based on a simple yet powerful principle: the majority of cases of chronic insomnia are caused by thoughts and behaviors that are learned and that can be unlearned. Some of the techniques and concepts in his book include:

* developing stress-reducing, sleep-enhancing attitudes and beliefs
