"SHUT UP and sleep" is a unique, non-fiction, health book based on the premise that breathing is the foundation of sleep. With symptoms told through stories, fables, poems, dialogue, imagery, and letters, the book takes the reader on a journey toward better sleep. Readers will emotionally resonate with the symptoms while organically learning complex medical, surgical, and dental information. A checklist connects the seemingly disparate symptoms and also serves as a template for the reader to share with their physician. Out of every ten people on Earth, eight partially breathe through their mouth. The lessons in the book can benefit the sleep and health of these individuals. With all due respect, now shut up and read.
