Description

Sleep is increasingly becoming a luxury in busy, modern life.

Statistics show that insomnia is rampant, and consumes billions in medical bills worldwide. We’re designed to spend a full third of our lives asleep, but despite that the science behind sleep is still murky.
The Science of Sleep explains the elements of the sleep state, details the physical functions that aid and challenge a restful night, examines our developing relationship with sleep throughout our lifetimes, and explores sleep disorders and how to remedy them. By offering an accessible, illustrated understanding of the science, including its recent developments, you can assess your personal relationship with sleep, and craft your own approach to having a full night’s sleep with maximum physical return.
