it was amazing
bookshelves: all-time-favorites

Finally, the book whose author actually said that he will be happy if a reader fell asleep while reading it. Great book!


I have to admit, I skipped a few chapters due to my incompetence in sleep science. But I am still rating it 5* stars since it was a great and interesting read. In my opinion M.P.Walker said everything about sleep that could be said.

The thing I liked the most was the style - it had a flowing continuity that was easy to understand for an average reader (I like stuff called popular science, but some authors just write pure science that is hard and complicated, and makes you sleepy too...)

M.P.Walker manages to address even the oddest facts of sleep with fun and yet scientific attitude. The examples he chooses are relevant and relatable, author know how to make a point without preaching. You will get a tons of arguments to explain people why you are an owl, why school should start later, why you shouldn't take sleeping pills, and damn, why we sleep.
