Very informative - nicely written. A bit dull and makes me fall a sleep 😴.. I know he points out that’s a good thing. So to sum up - I am learning and finding it interesting but it’s not a page turner.

This will change how you think of sleep! It reads more as a ‘teachings’ book so can be a little hard to get through (at least for me) - but absolutely worth reading!

Book that has transformed the way I think about sleep (and I went in knowing a lot / valuing it highly). Really interesting journey through the evolution of sleep, types of sleep phases and why they matter through to sleeping problems and how best to solve them. Recommend for anyone on the fence about whether sleeping is important in their lives
