9780393080209: Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep
Rezension:

"Starred review. This fabulous book is likely to address any and all questions you might have about sleep... There's plenty of practical information, like how to overcome insomnia without drugs, how to combat snoring, how to encourage young children to get to sleep and, perhaps most useful, how to bet successfully on professional football games: our circadian rhythms favor West Coast teams over East Coast teams on Monday nights. This is one book that will not put you to sleep." "...Randall emphasizes the too-often neglected common-sense realization that sleep is no void; rather, it is perhaps one-third of the puzzle to living well. The author also notes that sleep is not an undifferentiated continuum; the most restful sleep arrives in five stages of about 90 minutes each. A welcome study of an element of life that is often "forgotten, overlooked, and postponed." "Though he doesn't go into minute detail, Randall provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to a mystifying but necessary part of life." "A lively overview of recent research into sleep." -- Maureen Corrigan "An accessible and well-researched guide to a fascinating subject." "The most diverting and consistently fascinating book on the topic ever... but you couldn't find a more charming guide to what we do know than Dreamland." -- Laura Miller "Randall's wit and curiosity make him a comforting guide." "Randall has done a lot of good reporting, writes clearly and makes even the scientific aspects of his subject easily accessible... The result is an enjoyable, edifying book that goes down easy... The one thing Dreamland will not do-sorry, insomniacs-is put you to sleep. The topic and the treatment are both too interesting." -- Daniel Akst
