Why We Sleep
- The New Science of Sleep and Dreams
- Written by: Matthew Walker
- Narrated by: John Sackville
- Length: 13 hrs and 31 mins
Why can some birds sleep with only half of their brain? What really happens during REM sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, health and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep or what good it serves or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent. In this book, neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker charts 20 years of cutting-edge research.
My sleep is broken

One may have heard of many self help books but it all doesn't work until the brain has had a good night sleep a day before.
So listen/read this book to know the importance of sleep and how to act upon it.
The most beautiful thing about this book is it's application is so universal that it applies to all Ages(specially babies and Old), social classes, cultures etc..

What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us sapiens? In this bold and provocative audiobook, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here, and where we're going.
