Michael McGirr always had trouble sleeping. The arrival of twins, however, made him realize that he'd never before known true exhaustion. And while he celebrated these small children who brought him so much joy and tiredness, he found himself on a desperate and bone-weary journey in search of just a few extra winks a night. It was an adventure that would teach him more about what exactly sleep is, why we need it, and what it means when we don't get enough of it.

Who doesn't love sleep? It's such a fundamental part of life that we don't usually think about it, but the research into sleep and how important it is has highlighted just how damaging a lack of sleep can be.
This book has excellent tips for making sure that you get great quality sleep and enough of it.
