    Sleep is the subject of intense scientific debate among biologists and neuroscientists. Why must we spend about one-third of our lives asleep? What exactly is sleep? Why does a lack of sleep impair our cognitive abilities and leave us vulnerable to a host of medical issues ranging from obesity to reduced resistance to infectious disease?

    What did you love best about Secrets of Sleep Science: From Dreams to Disorders?

    The narrator did a superb job. Pace, tone, rapport, comfort with technical terms, etc. This guy knows his stuff and has the gift of being an enjoyable narrator!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Secrets of Sleep Science: From Dreams to Disorders?

    The explanations about how sleep and memory and learning are linked, and what experiments they do to pinpoint and deduce where, when, and how this works. I've learnt a great deal.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to audiobooks in my car on my commute to and from work. Each leg is about 40 minutes. I was always a bit disappointed when I arrived at my destination, because I wish could listen just a bit longer!Having said that, listening through the entire thing in one go would be too much. One has to sleep, no. :-)
