Insomnia Cures

This article on ways to beat insomnia brought to mind a fail-proof way I discovered many years ago while studying government. (In those days we didn't pretend that politics was a science.)

One of the assigned reading books was a thin volume by Roy C. Macridis that had near-magical powers. A mere three to five minutes with it and I was out. Any time. Any location. Unfortunately, I gave away the book before reaching the age when insomnia strikes. I've half a mind to track it down today.

Michael,

If you can't find it, try The Ralph Nader Reader. Though not a lengthy book and though I've had it a long time, I'm not close to finishing it.

John,

Thanks for the tip. That book may be easier to find!

Any textbook should do the trick as well. Try a high school government text. Not sure how my daughter stays awake to learn government.
