Summary

In this audiobook, you will discover much about sleep you probably didn’t know. This audiobook delves into the most important issues around sleep in easily understood detail.    

If you are curious about the nature of sleep, as in how much we actually know about what sleep is, the purpose it serves in our lives, and what happens when we don’t sleep enough, you have ordered the perfect audiobook.    

Inside this audiobook, you will find, in addition to other information:    

  • Guidelines for how much sleep humans need in different stages of their life.
  • Details about some of the most prevalent sleep disorders, what they are, and how they affect people and also the treatments available for them. 
  • Results of sleep-related research...how sleep affects our health. 
  • Information about the stages we pass through as we sleep. 
  • A description of what is meant by the term “Circadian Rhythm” and how this rhythm affects how you sleep. 
  • Holistic home remedies you can try for mild or occasional insomnia.

Sleep is indeed a fascinating topic to learn about. In our modern world, it is so common for people to lead such packed lives. In fact, vast numbers of people pack their lives too full. Something must give, and often times the extra hours that are so badly needed to get through the day are stolen from sleep.    

Before there were nine-to-five jobs, even before there were schools to attend, and of course prior to the invention of electricity, people slept entirely based on the rhythms of their bodies. Because there was no such thing as “processed foods", people ate much better as well.      

Since the early 1800s, humans have come light years in terms of progress. Scientists have been discovered and been able to accomplish and achieve so much in terms of our health and overall well-being. However, in part because of that progress, we seem to have gone backward where sleep is concerned.

Informative book.

Why We Sleep is easy to understand and fascinating, especially the description of REM vs nonREM sleep. The studies are convincing and the consequences of societal sleep deprivation are very worrisome. I hope it helps to encourage schools to reevaluate their hours and to ,one day soon, stop changing the clocks an hour twice a year.

So great and filled with useful info

I've always protected and enjoyed my sleep, and now I know why. This amazing book explains in plain English (and occasional humor) how inadequate sleep is making us sick, crazy, and dead. The scientific evidence is in, and it is overwhelming. And really, anything less than 7-8 hours is inadequate. Truly, this book led me to change many habits that interfere with good sleep.

A must listen!

Listen this book, and you'll be glad to be proven wrong because it's your health, happiness, and success that suffers when you don't change your life.

Very pleasant.

I heard this via audiobook from library and had to but to share with others. So insightful and life changing. We really don't treat our sleep like a necessity and we should, the science proves it is.

This is absolutely the best one

I was devouring every page like it was some amazing novel. That said, you are forewarned... you will be faced with some serious life considerations in regards to sleep while and after reading this. They say ignorance is bliss... that is, until your ignorance ruins your life!

Everything written in this book makes sense

I’ve struggled with sleep since I was young, but after listening this book I’ve realized there are few other things worth prioritizing above sleep. I’ve revamped my room, my daily schedule, everything in order to prioritize sleep and I thank the author for all of his work in putting this book together.

Five Stars

I had many questions about sleep in general. Why must we sleep. What value is REM sleep. What is the purpose of deep NREAM sleep. This book answered most of my questions. I think he is a brilliant scientist.
