9780393345865: Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep
Review:

"A lively overview of recent research into sleep." -- Maureen Corrigan "A thoroughly enjoyable overview of a familiar yet remarkably foreign terrain." -- Abigail Zuger, MD "The most diverting and consistently fascinating book on the topic ever... but you couldn't find a more charming guide to what we do know than Dreamland." -- Laura Miller "A page-turner for the science-minded." -- Susannah Cahalan "'Small science' at its best, illuminating aspects of human biology and behavior that have powerful repercussions in our private and social lives." -- Carol Tavris "An accessible and well-researched guide to a fascinating subject." "Randall's wit and curiosity make him a comforting guide." "Randall has done a lot of good reporting, writes clearly and makes even the scientific aspects of his subject easily accessible... The result is an enjoyable, edifying book that goes down easy... The one thing Dreamland will not do-sorry, insomniacs-is put you to sleep. The topic and the treatment are both too interesting." -- Daniel Akst "Starred review. This fabulous book is likely to address any and all questions you might have about sleep... There's plenty of practical information, like how to overcome insomnia without drugs, how to combat snoring, how to encourage young children to get to sleep and, perhaps most useful, how to bet successfully on professional football games: our circadian rhythms favor West Coast teams over East Coast teams on Monday nights. This is one book that will not put you to sleep." "...Randall emphasizes the too-often neglected common-sense realization that sleep is no void; rather, it is perhaps one-third of the puzzle to living well. The author also notes that sleep is not an undifferentiated continuum; the most restful sleep arrives in five stages of about 90 minutes each. A welcome study of an element of life that is often "forgotten, overlooked, and postponed." "Though he doesn't go into minute detail, Randall provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to a mystifying but necessary part of life."

Review:

Randall has done a lot of good reporting, writes clearly and makes even the scientific aspects of his subject easily accessible... The result is an enjoyable, edifying book that goes down easy... The one thing Dreamland will not do--sorry, insomniacs--is put you to sleep. The topic and the treatment are both too interesting. --Daniel Akst "... a gripping account of why we sleep." Daily Mail

Descripción WW Norton Co, United States, 2013. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 203 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Like many of us, journalist David K. Randall never gave sleep much thought. That is, until he began sleepwalking. One midnight crash into a hallway wall sent him on an investigation into the strange science of sleep. In Dreamland, Randall explores the research that is investigating those dark hours that make up nearly a third of our lives. Taking readers from military battlefields to children s bedrooms, Dreamland shows that sleep isn t as simple as it seems. Why did the results of one sleep study change the bookmakers odds for certain Monday Night Football games? Do women sleep differently than men? And if you happen to kill someone while you are sleepwalking, does that count as murder? This book is a tour of the often odd, sometimes disturbing, and always fascinating things that go on in the peculiar world of sleep. You ll never look at your pillow the same way again.
