Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker

Let's Talk About Books With Reggie

Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our lives. Until recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when we don’t sleep. Compared to the other basic drives in life – eating, drinking, and reproducing – the purpose of sleep remained elusive. Charting cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs, and synthesizing decades of research and clinical practice, Prof. Matthew Walker, Director of UC Berkley’s Sleep and Neuroimaging Lab, explains how we can harness sleep’s transformative power to change our lives for the better. Clear-eyed, fascinating, and accessible, Why We Sleep is a crucial and illuminating book.
