Would you listen to Why We Sleep again? Why?

The deep and calm voice of the narrator makes this audiobook a pleasure to listen to. I will certainly re-listen to 'Why We Sleep' because it offers plenty of interesting information on the importance of sleep and it's packed with tips on how to make your sleep healthier; to make a full use of the knowledge the book offers, I need to listen to certain chapters again and take some notes.

Any additional comments?

The book is potentially life changing, especially if you happen to suffer from sleep deprivation and/or ill health potentially caused by it. It makes a very strong case for prioritising good sleep and it motivated me to care for myself and my family better. Of particular interest to me were the author's discussions of children's sleep, it's potential connection to ADHD and dangers of sleep deprivation in youngsters. I became a much more sleep-conscious parent as a result. I highly recommend this audiobook!

This book is great! It argues for an interesting hypothesis and does so in a rather compelling manner; it’s thought provoking and helps to see the concept of success in a new light; in addition, thanks to Gladwell’s wonderful narration, it’s very pleasant to listen to. I often listen to books in the evening but I don’t recommend this title as a bed time story- it’s so good I couldn’t fall asleep for 4h!
