For most of us, our main interest in sleep is to find more time to do it. Journalist David K. Randall admits that his real fascination with the subject began only after a nasty experience with sleepwalking. Whatever the cause, the result is an absorbing study of what most people do for decades of their lives. Tapping the cutting-edge findings of sleep research, Randall probes a range of topics from sleeping pills and mattress hardness to the effects of sleep deprivation on soldiers, students, and athletes. Along the way, he demolishes pillows full of myths about slumber, but entertains us even as we become aware that he's keeping us up late.
