This week we're talking about a HIGHLY important topic: SLEEP!

We review the New York Times Bestseller Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker, PhD.

In full spoiler-alert transparency: WE LOVE THIS BOOK. It's funny, filled with valuable information, and best of all leans heavily on STEM!

Matthew Paul Walker is an English scientist and professor of neuroscience and psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. He graduated with a degree in neuroscience from the University of Nottingham and received a PhD in neurophysiology from Newcastle University. 

Previously, he was a professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. He is also the founder and director of the Center for Human Sleep Science. He has received numerous funding awards from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health,  and is a Kavli Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences. He has published more than 100 scientific research studies and has been featured on numerous television and radio outlets.

We cover topics in each of the four parts of this Why We Sleep Book Review:

1. This Thing Called Sleep

2. Why Should You Sleep?

3. How and Why We Dream

4. From Sleeping Pills to Society Transformed
