Todo o bom humor e a capacidade de explicação do Richard WisemanRichard Wiseman em uma área que ele domina. Já tinha lido o Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep, que fala muito mais sobre o ato de dormir, cama, quantas horas as pessoas dormem ao redor do mundo e etc. O Wiseman, p...

Alku oli tosi innostava ja hyvin perusteltu. Sai oikeasti sai ajattelemaan unen merkitystä pitkän ja hyvän elämän kannalta. Lisäksi hyviä vinkkejä mm. heräämiseen virkeänä. Loppu kuitenkin vähän lässähti: paranormaalius ja unien tulkinta ei oikein napannut.

Although this book was initially recommended to me about a couple of years back, I read it because it popped up on the list of my book club. Since the initial recommendation, I happened to have read several well-written science (non-fiction) books. I guess this is why I did not enjoy this book to...

I was blown away at the detail Richard Wiseman delved into the science of sleep. He used various clinical studies and historical events to not only break down the concepts he presented but to also engage us as his readers. This book delivers concise notions in a fun way, that really made it a ver...

Very simplistic book about the science of sleep. Obviously written for the layman. Enjoyable.

I owe a lot to authors like this who make the complicated (not to mention exceedingly boring) jargon and i...

Good bits: Covers the basics of sleep science, which I knew nothing about previously, lots of historical detail, both enlightening and quirky, and a wide range of modern research. Written in an accessible style although the jokes may not appeal to everyone!
Bad bits: Some sections feel he's simply...

After reading this book, I know more about sleep than ever before and it was a pleasurable and easy read. Wiseman does an excellent job of making the scientific research accessible whilst maintaining a fun storyline throughout the book and presenting actual applications and implications for the r...

I had no idea what to expect when I picked this up and really was blown away by just how much I learned. It occupies that highly interesting area of science that you were never taught about in school, and I've found it a great companion to my lucid dreaming exploration.
Considering sleep is someth...
