    Inhaltsangabe

    The first sleep book by a leading scientific expert - Professor Matthew Walker, director of UC Berkeley's Sleep and Neuroimaging Lab - reveals his groundbreaking exploration of sleep, explaining how we can harness its transformative power to change our lives for the better.

    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 life - eating, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep remained elusive.

    But an explosion of scientific discoveries in the last 20 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. Among so many other things, within the brain, sleep enriches our ability to learn, memorize, and make logical decisions. It recalibrates our emotions, restocks our immune system, fine-tunes our metabolism, and regulates our appetite. Dreaming mollifies painful memories and creates a virtual reality space in which the brain melds past and present knowledge to inspire creativity.

    Walker answers important questions about sleep: How do caffeine and alcohol affect sleep? What really happens during REM sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? How do common sleep aids affect us, and can they do long-term damage? Charting cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs and synthesizing decades of research and clinical practice, Walker explains how we can harness sleep to improve learning, mood, and energy levels; regulate hormones; prevent cancer, Alzheimer's, and diabetes; slow the effects of aging; increase longevity; enhance the education and lifespan of our children, and boost the efficiency, success, and productivity of our businesses. Clear-eyed, fascinating, and immensely accessible, Why We Sleep is the crucial account on sleep that will forever change listeners' minds on the subject.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    We don't sleep enough. We must. Here's how.

    This book contains pretty much everything about sleep: its amazing benefits, our lack of it, what happens when we don't have enough sleep and how to fix it. Some takeaways: - Dreams and sleep stretch our imagination, boost our IQ, memory, sex drive, physical capabilities and overall health. - Sleep deprivation gives you cancer, in addition to a bunch of other diseases. - Give yourself 7-9 hrs of opportunity to sleep every night - You can't make up over the weekend for the sleep you didn't have over the week - Your bedroom should be 1-2 degrees colder when you're about to sleep. Taking a shower before bed also helps. - Take a short nap in the early afternoon if you can, like a siesta. - Stop getting caffeine at least 8 hours before bed The narration was very slow and sleep-inducing. I don't know if this was on purpose but it was a bit boring at times.

    The title is misleading

    Nevertheless it’s a great book about the importance of a good night sleep, an people should really know more about. I’d just have been more interested in the “why” as suggested by the title.

    Appendix (last 5 minutes) is the most valuable

    All the book is about the justification (experiences, stories, experiments made and published in Papers) about why we should sleep 8h. But the recommendations about how to do it, how to sleep, are all summarized in the Appendix (only 5 minutes long). And don't look for optimization. There is no trick on how to sleep like 8h in only 6 or anything like that. It's only the 5 minutes advice about how to properly sleep the 8 regular hours. If you are in the academic industry, you are studying or studied a PhD, then maybe you find it very interesting.

    Super Inhalt, teilweise langatmig

    Der Sprecher war sehr angenehm und das Thema sehr interessant. Es werden viele interessante Aspekte besprochen, von denen ich auch einige für mich persönlich übernommen habe. Allerdings hat der Autor viele Stellen meiner Meinung nach zu sehr ausgeschmückt, wodurch das Hörbuch stellenweise langweilig war, selbst wenn dder Inhalt interessant war, da gleiche oder ähnliche Aspekte zu oft durchgekaut wurden. Vom generellen Inhalt jedoch ein sehr interessantes Buch, das ich in der heutigen, schnellen, schlaflosen Gesellschaft wärmstens empfehlen kann!!!

    Went from bad sleeper to insomniac after hearing

    This book is not suited for anxious people like me. I first bought it hoping it could solve some issues with my sleep but since it is mostly telling how bad sleep depravation is for my health, I just get more anxious and can't sleep anymore

    The book is full of inaccuracies and mistakes

    Before doing some research on the book, I was fascinated by it and thoroughly enjoyed it, like no other book in a long time. I even recommended it to a friend of mine, who got suspicious of the book and researched about it. He then send me an article about the mistakes in the book, and there were a lot of them, although the author of the article(Alexey Guzey) only covered mostly the first chapter. The danger of sleeping less than 8 hours gets systematicly overstated and the relationship between sleep and longevity and between sleep and cancer is strongly misrepresented. He even leaves parts of a graphic out to match his point of view. I assume the author didn't intentionality try to misrepresent facts, but he didn't try to factcheck and was overenthusiastic about the effect of sleep. Please read more on https://guzey.com/books/why-we-sleep/#summary I stopped reading the book, because I don't know how much of it is accurate, which was hard because I really liked the book and the topic.

    For getting to know the importance of sleep.

    This is not a book to find solutions for good sleep (even though they are provided for 5mins at the end). It's more a book to see the big influence sleep has on everything in our life, especially our well being. Didn't quite like the speaker but one gets used to it.
