Why do we sleep? What causes insomnia? How many hours of sleep are adequate?
Sleep is a complex phenomenon, and even though we spend one third of our lives sleeping, there’s still very little that we know about it. In this path-breaking book on sleep, Dr Manvir Bhatia, one of the country’s top sleep specialists, sheds light on the fascinating connection between sleep and the brain, sleep and beauty, and sleep and weight, among other things. From delving into common sleep problems and weird phenomena observed in sleep like sexsomnia, narcolepsy (falling asleep at random times) and sleep apnea (pauses in breathing during sleep) to the specific tools needed to ensure good sleep, The Sleep Solution is the go-to book for all your sleep-related problems.
