From NASA light science to how to tune into your body and sleep, Teach Yourself to Sleep is backed up by extensive research and exclusive interviews with many leading doctors, scientists, experts and academics - to help you understand sleep like never before and how you can give yourself the best sleep possible.
Teach Yourself to Sleep takes a thought-provoking and accessible look at the science and biology of sleep, opening up a new way of looking at sleep issues in a much wider context. It is the perfect blend of original research, practical advice and interesting history that brings a fresh perspective to the topic of sleep and a new approach for unlocking the obstacles that might be holding sleepers back from getting better, quality sleep.
