Health & Fitness. Psychology. Science. Nonfiction. HTML:"Why We Sleep is an important and fascinating book...Walker taught me a lot about this basic activity that every person on Earth needs. I suspect his book will do the same for you." Bill Gates

A New York Times bestseller and international sensation, this "stimulating and important book" (Financial Times) is a fascinating dive into the purpose and power of slumber.
With two appearances on CBS This Morning and Fresh Air's most popular interview of 2017, Matthew Walker has made abundantly clear that sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent. Compared to the other basic drives in lifeeating, drinking, and reproducingthe purpose of sleep remains more elusive.

Within the brain, sleep enriches a diversity of functions, including our ability to learn, memorize, and make logical decisions. It recalibrates our emotions, restocks our immune system, fine-tunes our metabolism, and regulates our appetite. Dreaming creates a virtual reality space in which the brain melds past and present knowledge, inspiring creativity.

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.

Clear-eyed, fascinating, and accessible, Why We Sleep is a crucial and illuminating book. Written with the precision of Atul Gawande, Andrew Solomon, and Sherwin Nuland, it is "recommended for night-table reading in the most pragmatic sense" (The New York Times Book Review).

Along with the brain, sleep remains as one of the frontiers of biomedical science. Over a century ago, Sigmund Freud attempted to explore the nature of dreams, but his first attempts seem generally off mark to modern science. Current work has much more evidence to inform it, but few have the time to learn about it. Fortunately, Matthew Walker, a research scientist (notably not a physician), presents a summary of contemporary scientific insights about sleep. He also offers numerous practical applications that can help us all get better quality sleep to live a better quality life.

I have a sleep disability whereby necessary medication causes me to sleep 11-12 hours per night. That change was a tough pill for me to accept, but over two decades later, I have come to accept it as a necessary part of my life. At the same time, I begun to have more vivid dreams. I remain very interested in this topic, and that interest led me to this book. I’m glad I found it.

Walker takes on a variety of topics around sleep and hardly leaves any one untouched. He talks about sleeping pills, dream interpretation, the length of sleep, early waking for schools, and medical residency training, among many others. His reasoning appears balanced and sound. He does not come across as overly preachy, but he does recognize the real, practical, human value of sleep science. He addresses current cultural controversies through science but, as you’d expect from a scientist, does not engage in culture wars.

I’ve learned a thing or two about recent sleep science that will help me along. Most people have a relationship with sleep that’s unique to them, and I suspect most people possess some degree of emotional feelings towards sleep. This book can address both of those life segments in a way that makes their lives better. The author’s words are directed towards a general audience, not just scientists. While heavy on the science, it provides a good reminder that the hours that we’re least active can be the most productive in our lives. ( )

Wirklich interessant! Allerdings nicht ganz einfach zu lesen. ( )

This remarkable book should be on the syllabus of every high school health class on the planet. It never occurred to me how pervasive and easily preventable sleep deprivation could be across our civilization nor how costly it is to our children’s wellbeing and the workplace. The science in this book is stunning. ( )

Read if you want to increase your anxiety about sleep. ( )

Научпоп, компилирующий для обывателя последние достижения ученых, добрался и до жизненно важной и любимой нами сферы — сна. Профессор неврологии и психиатрии из Калифорнийского университета в Беркли смог донести новости науки в удобоваримой форме без формул и непонятных акронимов. Неудивительно, что книга стала бестселлером, тем более что вопрос крайне насущный.

Две трети взрослого населения всех развитых стран недосыпают, а последствия такого тотального недосыпа шокировали сначала ученых, а теперь, по прочтении, потревожат и вас. Всемирная организация здравоохранения вообще официально классифицировала работу в ночную смену как «вероятно канцерогенную». Без нормального сна все попытки сбросить вес тщетны — ни тренировки, ни диета не будут работать, более того, при коротком сне люди употребляют на 300 калорий больше, что в год легко дает 70 000 (с учетом выходных), а это в среднем 5 кг отнюдь не мышц. Тем, кто хвастает на работе, что им достаточно 4–5 часов сна, вы можете только посочувствовать. Это, вероятно, лишь совпадение, но и Рейгана, и Тэтчер, публично заявлявших такое, настиг Альцгеймер. Спать менее шести часов и быть годами работоспособными могут лишь люди с мутацией гена BHLHE41, а таких единицы. С другой стороны, теперь стало понятнее, как именно сон помогает мозгу учиться и закреплять навыки. Быстрый сон (со сновидениями) способствует креативности, демонстрируя смотрящему такие комбинации, которые бодрствующий мозг пресекает в зародыше. А зря, именно так появилась Yesterday «Битлз», а Отто Лёви придумал удостоенный Нобелевской премии эксперимент. Кстати, теперь с помощью сканера ученые могут понимать, что именно вы видите во сне, по крайней мере класс предметов.

Неожиданно, но сновидения, связанные с реально происходящими психологическими травмами — разводом, разрывом отношений, помогают перевернуть тяжелую страницу и войти в жизнь новых эмоций. Те же пациенты, в чьих снах не отражались мучительные переживания, не смогли отрешиться от печального события и оставались в депрессивном состоянии и год спустя. Бывает, что мы спим тревожно не из-за жизненных драм. Часто это происходит в первую ночь на новом месте. Как выяснилось, это разновидность однополушарного сна, существующего в полной мере у некоторых животных. Так, у нас одно полушарие мозга будет спать более чутко, выполняя сторожевую функцию, как, например, у птиц, сидящих в стае с краю. Качеству сна в книге вообще отведена отдельная часть.
