Concomitantly, practitioners have begun to delve into the art of the practice of sleep medicine. This third edition of Principles and Practice of Sleep Medicine, published 11 years after the first publication, admirably combines the basic science and clinical aspects of sleep medicine to produce an excellent text on sleep disorders medicine. As the authors state in the preface of the third edition, the changing landscape in the field of sleep medicine necessitated substantial changes in the organization and content of the book.
