if this book were a college course, its title would be something like Intro to Sleep Science. The author gives a brief overview of the current state of knowledge about various aspects of sleep with references for those who might want to pursue a given topic more in depth. Dreamland contains lots interesting tidbits about the relationship between sleep and SAT scores, sleep and baseball performance, dreams, and, sadly for mattress manufacturers but good for your wallet, the lack of relationship between a fancy mattress and a good night's sleep. It's a fun quick read, although I would not have missed the unsubtle attempts at humor, which really stuck out in the overall flow of the book.
