Compared to the other basic drives in life - consuming, drinking, and reproducing - the purpose of sleep stayed elusive.Now, in this book, the very first of its kind written by a scientific professional, Professor Matthew Walker explores twenty years of cutting-edge research to resolve the mystery of why sleep matters., Looking at animals from across the animal kingdom as well as major human research studies, Why We Sleep digs into everything from what truly happens throughout REM sleep to how caffeine and alcohol affect sleep and why our sleep patterns change across a lifetime, transforming our appreciation of the amazing phenomenon that safeguards our presence.
