Seems pretty obvious that human beings need sleep, but I was still surprised by how much we need it and the many things that sleep does for us. And conversely, the astonishing number of ways a lack of sleep can be detrimental.
Interesting, tempered exposition from a scientist, though I expected the practical advice and wasn’t prepared for the urgent and compelling argument that we have a modern sleep crisis we need to take seriously as a species.
You might say it was a wake-up call for sleep.
But seriously, worth a read.
