Can anyone recommend a good book? I am interested in learning about sleep cycles and narcolepsy. I have read some but feel I want to go more indepth for a better understanding.
The best books I have found (both recommended to me by people on this site) are:
1. Narcolepsy A Clinical Guide. (2010). Edited by Meeta Goswami, S.R. Pandi-Perumal, and Michael J. Thorpy. This book is a collection of 28 articles about Narcolepsy. Includes sections on etiology, clinical considerations, psychosocial considerations, and management. Highly informative, written like a good college text. Some sections are more scientific than others, but overall a very informative book that presents a great deal of research.
2. Narcolepsy, A Funny Disorder that's No Laughing Matter. (1995). by Marguerite Jones Utley. This book is written more for people with narcolepsy and their families in order to gain self understanding. Presents a lot of helpful information, but a bit out of date in some areas. Talks about narcolepsy from a more personal viewpoint.
Both of these books can be ordered online from a variety of retailers. Please note that the first book can be found for a somewhat reasonable price if you shop around online...the publisher (Springer) charges top dollar, so best to avoid them. The second book is more reasonably priced.
