    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin.

    The number one Sunday Times best seller.

    TLS, Observer, Sunday Times, FT, Guardian, Daily Mail and Evening Standard Books of the Year 2017.

    Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker, read by John Sackville.

    Includes a bonus PDF of graphs and diagrams.

    Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our life, health and longevity and yet it is increasingly neglected in 21st century society, with devastating consequences: every major disease in the developed world - Alzheimer's, cancer, obesity, diabetes - has very strong causal links to deficient sleep.

    Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why its absence is so damaging to our health. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.

    Now, in this audiobook, the first of its kind written by a scientific expert, Professor Matthew Walker explores 20 years of cutting-edge research to solve the mystery of why sleep matters. Looking at creatures from across the animal kingdom as well as major human studies, Why We Sleep delves in to everything from what really happens during REM sleep to how caffeine and alcohol affect sleep and why our sleep patterns change across a lifetime, transforming our appreciation of the extraordinary phenomenon that safeguards our existence.

    Informative with passionate narrator

    I would recommend this book to anybody who is currently sleeping less than 7 hours per night and wants to find a shortcut to improving their life in all aspects. I found the information here enlightening and the evidence compelling.

    The narrator is great too, he manages to imitate the various accents and also reads the sentences in a way that very accurately brings across the weight and meaning of the point that Matthew Walker is trying to bring across. I felt like the narrator was the writer himself.

    One of the best books

    Enlightening! Every policy maker must read this book. Many times we skip straight to solutions. This book is all about the why and I believe it is vital that our why is clear. Why we sleep? Explains the importance of sleep, what improves its quality and what doesn't.

    Unfortunately just a collection of observations

    Science is the art of creating models and then trying to invalidate them through experiments.

    I am in chapter 4 now and I haven’t heard the author mentioning a model. The book describes “interesting” facts about sleep and the effects of not getting enough sleep.

    I guess I expected some model of sleep beyond: cleaning up the brains memory.

    Life changing

    While the aim of this book is to get you to close your eyes it ultimately opens them....to the damage done to one’s own health and the public health of not getting enough sleep. Plenty of great tips on how to improve sleep.

    Great book on the subject with good tips on how to get better sleep. Only thing missing is the scientific studies related to the effect meditation has on sleep. Otherwise a great read. Highly recommend!

    Truly eye-opening

    As someone who viewed sleep as a pesky interruption to my free-time activity, and who had heard somewhere that only REM sleep was important, this was truly eye-opening.
    While I knew the standard 8-hours-a-night guideline, the reasons for this seemed vague and uncompelling. Until now.
    Essentially, a full night's sleep offers an almost miraculous list of psychological and health benefits, including memory consolidation, problem solving, processing of emotions, cleansing the brain of harmful compounds amassed during the day, immune reinforcement, blood-vessel cleansing, etc. etc.
    Only a few chapters into this book, I was already convinced enough of sleep's importance to cut down my caffeine intake from five to one cup of caffeinated coffee per day.

    Excellent book! Very informative

    Written in a lively, interesting way, almost like a novel. It made me appreciate sleep more and pay attention to sleeping enough, since it is the basis for health and beauty and a whole lot more, like Alzheimers' prevention...

    The only drawback for me was the frequent referring to the evolution theory. I believe in a wise, loving Creator and it is perfectly fine to me if not everything can be explained in scientific terms. He is much bigger than us, you know?

    Highly informative up to potentially life changing

    This book should be distributed among as many people as possible to educate society about the importance of sleep.
    The speaking is well done and encourages to keep on listening to the recording.
    I highly believe that reading this book has the power to truly improve your life, health and sleep quality.

    Genug Schlafen ist lebenswichtig

    Ein Buch, dessen Fakten einem die Haare zu Berge stehen lassen, obwohl sie so unterhaltsam, charmant und fundiert vorgetragen werden. Es gibt so viele Studien, wie wichtig Schlafen für unsere Gesundheit, unser Menschsein, unsere Kinder (!) ist und trotzdem erfährt man das erst, wenn man anfängt, sich dafür zu interessieren und zu recherchieren. Es wäre schön, wenn viele Menschen sich mit diesem Buch beschäftigen und im Rahmen ihrer Möglichkeiten etwas ändern würden an unseren ungesunden Gewohnheiten und Strukturen. Sehr gut zu lesen und zu verstehen.

    Dieses Buch gibt unglaublich wichtige Informationen zum Thema Schlaf.
    Warum ist es so wichtig für uns zu schlafen? Was macht ungenügend schlaf mit unserer Gesundheit, sowohl Physisch als auch Psychisch? Warum stören Alkohol, Koffein und aber auch Schlaftabletten unseren Schlaf? Wie ändert sich unser Schlafrhythmus im Laufe des Lebens und warum ist es wichtig zu wissen- vorallem um unserer Teens und Jugendlichen zur liebe-?
    Viele spannende Fragen die der Autor, der seit jahrzenten den Schlaf erforscht, aufklärt.
    Das Buch enthält sehr viel wissen rund um den Schlaf. Sehr viel mehr als sich hier zusammenfassen lässt.
    Außerdem ist es wirklich gut vorgelsen.
