The Mystery Of Sleep: Why A Good Night's Rest Is Vital To A Better, Healthier Life, by Meir Kryger M.D.
Everyone needs a good night's sleep. In face, we spend a third of our lives in bed! But how much do we really understand about how sleep affects us?
In the past forty years, scientists have discovered that our sleep (or lack of it) can affect nearly every aspect of our waking lives. Yet many people, even medical personnel, are unaware of the dangers of poor sleep. Enter Dr. Meir Kryger, a world authority on the science of sleep.
He brings us a guide to the mysteries of slumber, combining detailed case studies, helpful tables, illustrations, and pragmatic advice. Kryger's text is a much-needed resource for insomniacs, those who snore, can't stay awake, or experience disturbing dreams; and for the simply curious. The Mystery of Sleep is more than a handbook; it is a guide to the world of sleep and the mysterious disorders that affect it.
“Dr. Kryger, winner of the National Sleep Foundation’s 2014 Lifetime Achievement Award, beautifully describes the enigmatic nature of human sleep from birth through retirement. A must-read for all sleepers!”—Lauren Hale, Editor-in-Chief, Sleep Health
