About the Author:

Matthew Walker's fascination with sleep has taken him from Nottingham to Harvard and on to the University of California, Berkeley, where he is currently Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology and Director of the Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory. He has published over 100 scientific research studies during the course of his twenty-year career. Why We Sleep is his first book.

Review:

A top sleep scientist argues that sleep is more important for our health than diet or exercise * The Times * I urge you all to read this book * Times Higher Education * Passionate, urgent, convincing ... it had a powerful effect on me -- Rachel Cooke * Observer * Most of us have no idea what we do with a third of our lives. In this lucid and engaging book, Matt Walker explains the new science that is rapidly solving this age-old mystery. Why We Sleep is a canny pleasure that will have you turning pages well past your bedtime -- Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness
