We know it's important to get enough sleep – but we didn't know that poor sleep can lead to heart disease, immune system dysfunction, psychological disadvantages, and even a shortened lifespan. So we found this book to be a fascinating, informative read – and because it outlines an easy-to-follow program for improving sleep, it's practical as well.
Healthful sleep has been empirically proven to be the single most important factor in predicting longevity, more influential than diet, exercise, or heredity. And yet we are a sleep-sick society, ignorant of the facts of sleep – and the price of sleep deprivation. In this groundbreaking book based on decades of study on the frontiers of sleep science, Dr. William Dement, founder and director of the Stanford University Sleep Research Center, explains what happens when we sleep, when we don't, and how we can reclaim the most powerful – and underrated – health miracle of all.
