while Will's book does have some discrepencies, at that time it was still the ony fundemental textbook


I respectfully disagree. "Handbook for Sleep Medicine Technologists" was available long before Spriggs' book was published (and is still available) and is every bit as good a textbook.

Friggin' duh, now that I see it, I realize it is in our lab library. I sometimes have no real idea what I am buying and just go whack-a-do ordering books upon books for the lab. I have the hope that by shear volume, the information will seep into the techs.

if it the book I am thinking of I saw it at nationals this year (minnesota)
I looked through it and was going to buy it. It seemed to be a very good resource book except that the chapter on scoring was outdated with the new guidelines A1 and A2 1234 and REM were the only things I saw right off the bat that were incorrect the next version will probably incorporate the new rules. I am waiting to see if they come out with a 2nd edition soon.

The book was not BY Nik Butkov, he supplanted Len Shigley as the Main editor late in the process. As a seminal chapter editor (Event recognition) I had brought that very issue, "The rules are changing, why publish a book with the old rules," up at every meeting. The publisher, Lippinkott, said that getting the book together was the biggest issue, and then tweaking for various changes would be done. I felt it was not nice to make people buy a book that was outdated as they broke the wrapper. Hey, maybe that is why my name was supplanted by "others" and I was relegated to a listing on the "Editorial Board."
Who knew.

Hey Somno, why was Len Shigley replaced? Was there a lot of politics that went with the book? or just other stuff happened? I always thought that it would be weird to have a book come out with the old rules in the year that the new rules were coming out......and it wasn't like we never new about it.

I was working in isolation. All had to go through LWW and no contact with th ewriters. But that rule always was suspect. I had very little direct interaction with the other editors. Len was up on the podium during the initial contact back in .... foggy here 2004, during the APSS where they announced the change to the scoring rules.
I tried to push to make it a primer, instead of a textbook. no takers, though they said I could do it a later date.
Then after about .5 year we got manuscripts, then some back and forth to LWW and about 1.5 year later we find out that it has been published and Len is no longer the Ed. Was a surprise to me. I do not like surprises like that. "Hey look, your name is off the chapter, though we used your words." WOOOWIE!

Well, almost of couse it violates everything... If you download a cd from the internet, you are also violating something...


I mean, haven't you ever heard talking about illegal download? It's not only about mp3's. Movies and books of all kind can also be downloaded, for my wallets health :D


By the way, if you don't want, just don't download

Lenik published a second edition of the Handbook for Sleep Medicine Technologists in 2009, does anyone have it and how does it compare to other texts?
