Short Synopsis
Meir Kryger's The Mystery of Sleep is an authoritative and accessible guide to what happens when we shut our eyes at night.

Full Synopsis
We spend a third of our lives in bed, but how much do we really understand about what happens when we go to sleep? What's the right amount? Why do we experience jet lag? Is snoring normal? Enter Dr. Meir Kryger, a world authority on the science of sleep, with a comprehensive guide to the science of slumber that combines detailed case studies and pragmatic advice.

Everyone needs sleep, and many of us will experience some difficulty sleeping over the course of our lifetimes (or know someone who does). Kryger's comprehensive text is a much-needed bedside resource for insomniacs, those who can't stay awake, and the simply curious. Uniquely wide ranging, this is part scientific history and part handbook of sleep and the disorders that affect it.

"Sleep is vital to health and well-being. In The Mystery of Sleep, Dr. Meir Kryger, one of the foremost authorities on sleep and sleep disorders, shares his experience, knowledge, and wisdom, showing that if we’re going to truly thrive, we must begin with sleep." ---Arianna Huffington, author of The Sleep Revolution

“Meir Kryger is the oracle when it comes to the conundrums of when, why, and how we sleep. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” ---Dotun Adebayo, BBC Radio 5
