Chapters have been written by experts in the field in order to provide physicians of a wide range of interests and abilities with a highly readable exposition of the principal results, including numerous well articulated examples and a rich discussion of applications.

The second edition has been revised to further broaden the scope with the inclusion of several new chapters such as Sleep and Dermatology, Fatigue in Chronic Medical Conditions, Occupational Sleep Medicine, Restless Legs Syndrome and Neuropsychiatric Disorders and Sleep Dysfunction after Traumatic Brain Injury, to name a few.

This second edition of Sleep and Psychosomatic Medicine is an interdisciplinary, scholarly, authoritative, evidence-based review of the field designed to meet the needs of a wide range of health care professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, medical students, and social workers in health care settings.
