The Secret Life of Sleep

“It is an occurrence that is so common, so habitual, so ubiquitous, we barely notice. Like the air we breathe, it is something we become aware of only when its quality is deteriorating.”

While most sleep research hasn’t ventured far beyond research labs and treatment clinics, The Secret Life of Sleep taps into the enormous reservoir of human experiences, including literature, culture, and spiritual traditions from around the globe to illuminate the complexities of a world where sleep has become a dwindling resource.

With a sense of infectious curiosity, award winning author Kat Duff mixes cutting-edge research with insightful narratives, surprising insights, and timely questions to help us better understand what we’re losing before it’s too late.

Tackling the full breadth of what sleep means to people the world over, Duff takes readers on an exploration of what lies behind and beyond our eyelids when we surrender to the secret life of sleep.
