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:
Passionate, urgent, convincing . . . it had a powerful effect on me -- Rachel Cooke * Observer * A powerful rallying cry by a researcher at the top of his game. If you want an effective distillation of a science that reaches deep into the frontiers of consciousness and identity . . . this is a good place to start. -- Oliver Moody * The Times * A stimulating and important book . . . richly packed with science . . . Walker describes superbly what is going on in the brain during sleep and dreaming -- Clive Cookson * Financial Times * Startling, sobering, vital, a life raft. . . . it's probably a little too soon to tell you that Why We Sleep saved my life, but I can tell you that it's been an eye-opener -- Mark O'Connell * Guardian * Why We Sleep is a book on a mission...One especially winning attribute of Walker is that he's not a scold. He frames his suggestions for more healthful sleep habits not as a series of eat-your-Wheaties admonitions, but as wondrous, uplifting improvements in quality of life...Why We Sleep mounts a persuasive, exuberant case for addressing our societal sleep deficit and for the virtues of sleep itself. It is recommended for night-table reading in the most pragmatic sense * The New York Times Book Review * This is brilliant popular science writing: accessible, compelling and enlightening -- David Lodge * Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year * One of my favourite books this year, and definitely the most useful . . . Now I go to sleep much earlier and feel much better for it. -- William Leith * Evening Standard Books of the Year * A top sleep scientist argues that sleep is more important for our health than diet or exercise -- Tom Whipple * The Times * 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 Simply a must-read. World-renowned neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker takes us on a fascinating and indispensable journey into the latest understandings of the science of sleep . . . that may change the way you live your life. In these super-charged, distracting times it is hard to think of a book that is more important to read than this one -- Adam Gazzaley, co-author of The Distracted Mind
