Review

‘With my job on Today, I have become obsessed with sleep. The Secret World of Sleep interweaves bizarre real life stories with cutting edge neurological science in the true tradition of Oliver Sacks. A fascinating read.’ -- Martha Kearney, BBC Radio 4

'Casebooks of neurological disorders are often strange and wonderful, but this one is special. Guy Leschziner is a consultant neurologist at Guy’s and St Thomas’s who specialises in sleep problems. And his patients experience the most extraordinary things…' -- James McConnachie ― Sunday Times

The Secret World of Sleep will not promise to cure your insomnia, but it does make for an entertaining and thought-provoking bedtime read.’ ― Guardian

'The Secret World of Sleep combines two of my favourite things – humanity and medical science. Dr Leschziner weaves wonderful stories that highlight how sleep disorders affect the lives and health of patients and their families. Along the way we are guided into the fantastic science of sleep. What a wonderful journey!' -- Meir Kryger MD FRCPC, Professor, Yale University, author of Mystery of Sleep
