could so with more scientific references perhaps. A better foundation in actual scientific findings. But a strong book none the less. Interesting, brutally honest, perspective. Many people won't be able to read this in an unbiased matter though and therefore will get upset by what peterson claims. His views are not uncontestedly popular, but I think they are valuable.

Why can some birds sleep with only half of their brain? What really happens during REM sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, health and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep or what good it serves or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent. In this book, neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker charts 20 years of cutting-edge research.

This book puts the spotlight on one of life most essential buildingblocks that we as humanbeings tend to neglect and undervalue.
It provides a basis for a much better quality of life and societal improvements that will save lives and stimulate our economies... its just mindblowing.
