I saw the author's TED talk about sleep and got intrigued, so I bought the book; I was expecting revelations about sleep, and found some of the facts exposed in the book quite interesting. Unfortunately, they're drowned in a sea of bland personal stories; all in all, this 200-or-so page book could easily be distilled into 75 pages if that filler was removed - I don't need to read about the author's jet lag experiences (we *all* know the feeling), nor am I interested in her personal, redundant and unenlightening observations about people living under the midnight sun. Imperfections aside, when the author is really dealing with sleep and circadian cycle science, the book rocks. ( )
