Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams, by Matthew Walker PhD 

In this “compelling and utterly convincing” (The Sunday Times) book, preeminent neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker provides a revolutionary exploration of sleep, examining how it affects every aspect of our physical and mental well-being. 

Charting the most cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs, and marshalling his decades of research and clinical practice, Walker explains how we can harness sleep to improve learning, mood and energy levels, regulate hormones, prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes, slow the effects of aging, and increase longevity. He also provides actionable steps towards getting a better night’s sleep every night.

No wonder this book is also recommended by Bill Gates!

Here’s a quote from the book:

 “Practice does not make perfect. It is practice, followed by a night of sleep, that leads to perfection.”
