    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.

    All you need to know about sleep

    Could be sunmarized on an A4. Good similes. Sometimes repetitive. But the lenght of the book helps you to memorize the key messages better.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Important read for better quality of life

    Happy with the reader and the contents, of course, too. A book worth reading and giving out to people in your life. Sleep has been underappreciated and misunderstood so long that this will have a profound effect on your relationship with it. Many important lessons for you and yours.

    Everyone should learn this at school or at home

    Knowledge is power and if you use health tips to improve your daily life (sleep knowledge in this particular case) it will most probably make all the difference during your journey through life.

    I extremely recommend reading/listening to this book and apply its recommendations during our sleeping routines in order to obtain positive results.

    Improving our sleeping quality and quantity makes our daily mood change for good, it increases our concentration, memory and motivation levels at work or during any other activity.
    What's more, in doing so, we also avoid many other negative side effects due to a lack of it.

    Best book on sleep

    This book explains deeply through physiology and the history of animals of how sleep is comparable. Also the most important methods of how to optimise sleep and rest and why it is physiologically essential as well. I recommend it to everyone who seeks to understand why prioritising sleep is essential to performing optimally

    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?

    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.
