Potentially life changing, which you cannot say about many books. The science is illuminating and the evidence is extremely persuasive.
It is not without flaws. The futurology and social commentary is less convincing. If you spend much of a book setting out the facts, supported by evidence, in order to build an argument that is not widely understood, you endanger your overall message if you veer off into ideas and opinions. In that regard it also felt padded a little.
The narration is very good, if a little "high and mighty" in its tone.
But pay little attention to these flaws. The core of this book is truly profound, and may cause you to rethink how you live your life.
And if you want an executive summary: Get another 30-60 mins sleep per night. You won't regret it.

A hearty NO! Matthew’s 20+ years of sleep studying and psychological tests have delivered some of the biggest results for humans in the betterment of themselves, their safety and society. This is a must read(or listen) book for all who are interested in prolonging their life or taking steps so as not to shorten it. John narrates the book wonderfully and really brings the enthusiasm that Matthew Walker pens. From increasing you chance of fighting off the common cold to even improving your chances of surviving cancer “Why We Sleep?” is an insightful and motivating book.

Game changer for me, I understand more about sleep. After 4 weeks I improved my sleep a lot.
I will recommend this book to all my friends and relatives. Most of us are no longer sleeping long enough or well enough and this book explains all the reasons why we need to fix this. It’s life changing.
