** The Secret Life of Sleep by Kat Duff

The Secret Life of Sleep steps lively through sleep problems, dreams, and how modern, clock-bound life may have created an entirely new way of sleeping in one solid, albeit usually too short block. The author seems to have experienced all kinds of problems falling asleep, staying asleep, dreaming disturbing dreams, and remembering much of what happens in her dreams in general, bringing up personal stories (judiciously) throughout the book to good effect.

For someone like me, who sleeps solidly and without any memories of dreams, disturbing or otherwise, most nights, it was an interesting experience to be reminded that no everyone has such an uncomplicated relationship with sleep. (And a much better book than the learned and rather boring Sleep.)
