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.

A very important book written with style and simplicity. One of those books you find yourself banging on about ad nauseum because it relates to so many conversations you have in day to day life. Great narrator too, just the odd mispronunciation but not as many as most Audible books I've listened to lately.
