So wonderful that specialist are starting to talk more about hypersomnia. It can be a very debilitating condition, such as in my case. 14-32 hours sleep has not only knocked out my sense of time but with vivid dreams it can be hard at times to know which world I'd rather be in. I have no social, work, or future plans. I'm just here sleeping all the time.
To know it is a topic important enough to be in this book gives me hope.
regardless of my condition, I would say he covers a whole host of usual and the unusual and talks about what is known and not known about the brain (re: sleep, waking, dreams etc) in a manner that is easy to understand and is interesting.
I highly recommend and I've listened to it twice and bought the hard copy as well.

As a fiber artist, I found this both inspirational and informative. I am amazed at the information gathered and how yet I am thankful for it. I have always been more interested in traditional fiber arts then more modern influences and often had a lot to ponder. Some of my questions have been answered only to be replaced by a mountain of new ones and I hope that this book inspires more scientific minds to search for more of the truth that has been discarded in the past. Oh to think of how much has been discarded just puts pangs in my heart, we will perhaps never know. I can't help but wonder if the treasures of 'Must Farm' archeology site are a lot of luck or there are still plenty to find if we would just open our eyes to it. Actually trying to recreate instead of just documenting sounds so important in researching these arts and I am thankful someone is taking the time to do so.
I read this quickly and will read it again. I suspect it is like one of those movies that you discover so much more the second time because there is just so much important information to take in in one sitting.
