Summary

Sleep is a matter of LIFE AND DEATH.  When we can’t sleep, we suffer in our productivity, mood, our relationships, men's sexual health, teen learning, and our physical health. Not sleeping CAN BE THE DEATH OF YOU. What do you know about sleep? In this book, readers will learn about: Why we MUST sleep, how the brain uses sleep to clean up the day’s toxins, how sleep relates to dementia, common sleep disorders, the power of naps, sleep and our immune system and medical disorders such as diabetes, what “sleep hygiene” means, how computer screens and cell phone blue light affects our sleep cycle, the meaning of “sleep debt.” You’ll find useful tests to see whether you are a “lark” or an “owl” and when you are at your best in terms of sleep. For extra measure, there’s a test to gauge your stress level and how that affects your sleep. Why are corporations encouraging employees to sleep on the job? Packed with useful references to important sleep articles you’ll want to read to inform yourself about sleep and how important it is. Don’t sell sleep short or it WILL kill you.

    The New York Times bestseller from the author of Chasing the Scream, offering a radical new way of thinking about depression and anxiety. 
      
     What really causes depression and anxiety--and how can we really solve them? Award-winning journalist Johann Hari suffered from depression since he was a child and started taking antidepressants when he was a teenager. He was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. As an adult, trained in the social sciences, he began to investigate whether this was true--and he learned that almost everything we have been told about depression and anxiety is wrong. 
      
     Across the world, Hari found social scientists who were uncovering evidence that depression and anxiety are not caused by a chemical imbalance in our brains. In fact, they are largely caused by key problems with the way we live today. Hari's journey took him from a mind-blowing series of experiments in Baltimore, to an Amish community in Indiana, to an uprising in Berlin. Once he had uncovered nine real causes of depression and anxiety, they led him to scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions--ones that work. 
      
     It is an epic journey that will change how we think about one of the biggest crises in our culture today. His TED talk, “Everything You Think You Know About Addiction Is Wrong,” has been viewed more than eight million times and revolutionized the global debate. This book will do the same.
