An Eye-opening Exploration Into the Science and Mysteries of SleepBook - 1996
A look at the facts and folklore of sleep that is mainly concerned with the problems of an increasingly sleep-deprived society, and the effects this has on people's work. The author shows, for example, that the Exxon Valdez oil spill and the space shuttle Challenger disaster were associated with people suffering from sleep deprivation. He also looks at some of the more subtle and insidious effects of sleep loss on our physical and mental health.
