With a voice that would soothe in any context, a seasoned stress expert offers a balanced 60 minutes on how to get sleep better by dealing with stress in the mind and body. Gentle, intuitive suggestions on what to do with overactive thinking are followed by step-by-step instructions on how to relax the body with breathing and progressive muscle relaxation. It's difficult on audio to sound both intelligent and soothing, but Hopps does it with a comfortable command of her subject matter and a palpable desire to be helpful. This is a program for everyone's night table. T.W.
