An engrossing examination of the science behind the little-known world of sleep.
From the Publisher:

Like many of us, journalist David K. Randall never gave sleepmuch thought. That is, until he began sleepwalking. One midnight crash into ahallway wall sent him on an investigation into the strange science of sleep.

In Dreamland, Randall explores theresearch that is investigating those dark hours that make up nearly a third ofour lives. 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.
