An engrossing examination of the science behind the little-known world of sleep.

Like many of us, journalist David K. Randall never gave sleep
much thought. That is, until he began sleepwalking. One midnight crash into a
hallway wall sent him on an investigation into the strange science of sleep.

In Dreamland, Randall explores the
research that is investigating those dark hours that make up nearly a third of
our lives. Taking readers from military battlefields to children's bedrooms, Dreamland shows that sleep isn't as simple as it seems.
Why did the results of one sleep study change the bookmakers' odds for certain
Monday Night Football games? Do women sleep differently than men? And if you
happen to kill someone while you are sleepwalking, does that count as murder?

This book is a tour of the
often odd, sometimes disturbing, and always fascinating things that go on in
the peculiar world of sleep. You'll never look at your pillow the same way
