Why we love this book:

Our society is increasingly more sleep-deprived, putting supposed productivity over getting shut-eye. But what if getting more sleep was the answer to being healthier, smarter, and more productive? "Why we sleep" by Matt Walker explores in-depth the extraordinary value of sleep and what tragically happens if we don’t get enough of it. It’s not a boring book by any measure, but with characteristic dry wit, Walker will lull you to sleep.
