Reviews for Sleep Paralysis:

“The most breakthrough research and insights into controlling your sleep paralysis episodes, compiled into one place. If you suffer from sleep paralysis consistently, you really must read this book.”

—Robert Waggoner, author of Lucid Dreaming: Gateway to the Inner Self.
