Almost a third of your whole life is spent asleep. Night School uncovers the scientific truth about the sleeping brain - and gives powerful tips on how those hours of apparently ‘dead’ time in the dark can transform your waking life.
Based on exciting new peer-reviewed research, mass-participation experiments, and the world's largest archive of dream reports, Night School will teach you how to:

Learn information and solve problems while you sleep
Find out why nightmares can be good for you, and what your dreams really mean
Unlock the creative power of the six-minute nap
Banish jet-lag, night terrors, and snoring
Discover the secrets of the ‘super sleepers’ - and get the best night's sleep of your life
Studies show that even a small lack of sleep can have a detrimental effect on our health, lifespan, and happiness. Professor Richard Wiseman’s authoritative, entertaining new book introduces the powerful new science of sleep - and gives us back the missing third of our days. Welcome to Night School.

We all know that getting enough sleep is essential to good health, and this book confirms that. The content is very practical and not just theory, with instruction on how to maximize your sleep for the greatest personal benefit. It is not a one fits all approach, but is tailored to all different types of sleep patterns. An excellent and motivating read.
