    Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker, read by John Sackville.

    Includes a bonus PDF of graphs and diagrams.

    Sleep is one of the most important aspects of our life, health and longevity and yet it is increasingly neglected in 21st 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 audiobook, the first of its kind written by a scientific expert, Professor Matthew Walker explores 20 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.

    Excellent book! Very informative

    Written in a lively, interesting way, almost like a novel. It made me appreciate sleep more and pay attention to sleeping enough, since it is the basis for health and beauty and a whole lot more, like Alzheimers' prevention...

    The only drawback for me was the frequent referring to the evolution theory. I believe in a wise, loving Creator and it is perfectly fine to me if not everything can be explained in scientific terms. He is much bigger than us, you know?

    Highly informative up to potentially life changing

    This book should be distributed among as many people as possible to educate society about the importance of sleep.
    The speaking is well done and encourages to keep on listening to the recording.
    I highly believe that reading this book has the power to truly improve your life, health and sleep quality.

    Genug Schlafen ist lebenswichtig

    Ein Buch, dessen Fakten einem die Haare zu Berge stehen lassen, obwohl sie so unterhaltsam, charmant und fundiert vorgetragen werden. Es gibt so viele Studien, wie wichtig Schlafen für unsere Gesundheit, unser Menschsein, unsere Kinder (!) ist und trotzdem erfährt man das erst, wenn man anfängt, sich dafür zu interessieren und zu recherchieren. Es wäre schön, wenn viele Menschen sich mit diesem Buch beschäftigen und im Rahmen ihrer Möglichkeiten etwas ändern würden an unseren ungesunden Gewohnheiten und Strukturen. Sehr gut zu lesen und zu verstehen.
