Taking readers from military battlefields to children's bedrooms, Dreamland shows that sleep isn't as simple as it seems.Why did the results of one sleep study change the bookmakers' odds for certainMonday Night Football games? Do women sleep differently than men? And if youhappen to kill someone while you are sleepwalking, does that count as murder?This book is a tour of theoften odd, sometimes disturbing, and always fascinating things that go on inthe peculiar world of sleep. You'll never look at your pillow the same wayagain.
