The author is a sleep researcher and scientist, with years of experience in this field. His studies throws light on the importance of sleep in our lives, the different sleep stages that we go through each night and what happens in each of them and restorative benefits that each stage has on a variety of cognitive and behavioral aspects in humans.

He takes us through many of the experiments that were designed to study the effects that sleep has on us and other animals. He argues sleep is influenced by many other factors, which again has been proven scientifically by carefully designed experiments.

This book will prod many of us to make lifestyle changes so that we prioritise sleep over everything else for our long term health. While some of these changes might need changes at a societal level, while others can be done at an individual's level.

The narration is engaging and the book definitely enlightening.
