I urge you all to read this book (Times Higher Education)

Passionate, urgent, convincing ... it had a powerful effect on me (Rachel Cooke Observer)

Most of us have no idea what we do with a third of our lives. In this lucid and engaging book, Matt Walker explains the new science that is rapidly solving this age-old mystery. Why We Sleep is a canny pleasure that will have you turning pages well past your bedtime (Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness)
