Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our life, health and longevity and yet it is increasingly neglected in twenty-first-century society, with devastating consequences: every major disease in the developed world - Alzheimer's, cancer, obesity, diabetes - has very strong causal links to deficient sleep.
Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why its absence is so damaging to our health. Compared to the other basic drives in life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.
Now, in this book, the first of its kind written by a scientific expert, Professor Matthew Walker explores twenty years of cutting-edge research to solve the mystery of why sleep matters. Looking at creatures from across the animal kingdom as well as major human studies, Why We Sleep delves in to everything from what really happens during REM sleep to how caffeine and alcohol affect sleep and why our sleep patterns change across a lifetime, transforming our appreciation of the extraordinary phenomenon that safeguards our existence.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express
Anonim a dat nota:
Una din cartile-studiu cele mai fascinante pe care le-am citit, captivanta de la inceput pana la sfarsit. Pe alocuri, chiar amuzanta - neasteptat pentru o astfel de carte. Mi se pare una din acele carti pe care TOTI at trebui sa o citim. Dupa ce o termini, iti ramane acel sentiment de "cum sa fac sa prioritizez cele 8 ore de somn in fiecare noapte". Sunt dezvaluite rezultatele multor cercetari din domeniul somnului, un exemplu fiind faptul ca dupa o noapte cu mai putin de 5 ore dormite, scad cu 70% celulele care omoara in mod natural celulele cancerigene din organism. Restul - in carte.
Matthew Walker's fascination with sleep has taken him from Nottingham to Harvard and on to the University of California, Berkeley, where he is currently Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology and Director of the Sleep and Neuroimaging Laboratory. He has published over 100 scientific research studies during the course of his twenty-year career. Why We Sleep is his first book.
Passionate, urgent . . . it had a powerful effect on me
Compelling and utterly convincing . . . you'll never think of your bedtime in the same way again
A stimulating and important book . . . richly packed with science
Uplifting . . . Walker is in love with sleep and wants us to fall in love with sleep, too
Matthew Walker is probably one of the most influential people on the planet
Astonishing ... an amazing book ... absolutely chocker full of things that we need to know
