The number one Sunday Times best seller.

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.

warum wir schlafen und warum wir schlafen sollten

Dieses Buch gibt unglaublich wichtige Informationen zum Thema Schlaf.
Warum ist es so wichtig für uns zu schlafen? Was macht ungenügend schlaf mit unserer Gesundheit, sowohl Physisch als auch Psychisch? Warum stören Alkohol, Koffein und aber auch Schlaftabletten unseren Schlaf? Wie ändert sich unser Schlafrhythmus im Laufe des Lebens und warum ist es wichtig zu wissen- vorallem um unserer Teens und Jugendlichen zur liebe-?
Viele spannende Fragen die der Autor, der seit jahrzenten den Schlaf erforscht, aufklärt.
Das Buch enthält sehr viel wissen rund um den Schlaf. Sehr viel mehr als sich hier zusammenfassen lässt.
Außerdem ist es wirklich gut vorgelsen.

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.

Probably importantly but too long and boring

This book has lots of good stuff in it but like 80% of it is so boring that I stopped after 11 hours, short of pulling out my ears. 

Love the bit where the narrator does Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger accents.

Narrator a bit plummy.

Mainly interesting to me, a non scientist, for the anecdotes so I could have done without the lengthy descriptions of biological processes and experiments. Reads at times like a textbook or academic article.

Nevertheless, I do think that this book has substantial changed the way I understand and prioritise sleep.

Great read - at times too detailed

Very much detail that might be too much for someone who just wants to get a general understanding of the topic. Very interesting insights for sure!
