My Sleepless Nights is an account of the author from sleepless nights to relaxed days. The book takes readers on a journey of a man (the author himself) who first develops insomnia and then overcomes it. The account is brutally honest and yet informative. To sleep late is a trend nowadays owing to sedentary lifestyle and 24/7 profession and so on.
The author gets into insomnia by reading books and it kept on increasing for other reasons as well. He compares the fear of insomnia with a sowing of a plant. According to the book one loses the battle against insomnia because one sows the seed of worry and fear in mindset. So in a very evident manner, the book shows how to shift the mindset to gain victory over insomnia. Manohar explains how he went to get into full-fledged insomnia from just reading books.
Other than the author’s struggle against the sleepless nights, the book features some good stories on consistency, persistence, dedication, and so on. The Chinese Bamboo story is of great significance. The author vividly explains his visits to psychologists and how he kept track of progress. The book is laced with knowledge in lucid narration. The take on nervous systems was way great in itself. The book has its own depth; the author tried no fictional gimmick to lure readers. Also you will find a lot of encouraging quotes by many prominent personalities.
The book is well structured. Right since the beginning, the author has given preface and purpose and inside story and conclusion. At a broader level, the following are the takeaways from the book: freedom from anxiety, peace of mind, and riddance from anti-depression or anxiety pills.
Among many methods that author tried to cure himself, he recommends meditation in the first place. If sleep is well, all is well. A very good book that lays its emphasis on mental health which is somehow directly proportional to sound sleep. The book is part memoir, part self-help – one can read it to experience the battle of one man against insomnia or can refer it for timely insights but this is not a book for the healing purpose.
