Author: by Matthew Walker
Why We Sleep is an important and fascinating bookWalker taught me a lot about this basic activity that every person on Earth needs. I suspect his book will do the same for you. Bill Gates A New York Times bestseller and international sensation, this stimulating and important book (Financial Times) is a fascinating dive into the purpose and power of slumber.
Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, wellness, and longevity. Until very 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 lifeeating, drinking, and reproducingthe purpose of sleep remained elusive. An explosion of scientific discoveries in the last twenty years has shed new light on this fundamental aspect of our lives. Now, preeminent neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker gives us a new understanding of the vital importance of sleep and dreaming.
