Description
For those who have puzzled over the mysteries of sleep, this panoramic view of modern sleep research by a pioneer in the field offers enlightening answers. Interweaving facts with fascinating case histories and anecdotes, Peretz Lavie discusses all that is known about sleep, dreaming, and sleep disorders, including landmark discoveries from his own sleep laboratory.

"Lavie makes such an engaging raconteur ... that we willingly follow him to the land of the alpha, theta and delta waves, where the spindles and L-complexes roam". -- Dava Sobel, The New York Times Book Review

"Peretz Lavie weaves a magical spell about sleep science through an often personal yet scientifically accurate vision in this very readable small book.... Lavie has produced a literate, informative and entertaining read for those who wish to delve into the mystic realms of sleep and dreams". -- Mary A. Carskadon, Nature

"A welcome blend of science with applications to real human problems pervades Lavie's interesting book". -- Mark Pagel, Quarterly Review of Biology

"Lavie's book is unique and well constructed in many ways. It deserves close scrutiny from those who want to learn more about the fascinating topic of sleep". -- David G. McDonald, Contemporary Psychology

"Lavie is wonderfully well informed about sleep disorders -- how to diagnose them and how to cope with them -- and his clear, authoritative book is an excellent introduction to a complex subject". -- A. Alvarez, The Guardian
