I loved this easy to read, comprehensive, entertaining book. Dement sets out to do one thing: educate readers about a neglected field: the sleeping mind. With a lot of pizzazz and humour, he tackles such subjects as REM sleep, circadian rhythms, dreams and sleep pathologies. He pulls from personal anecdotes and breakthrough research to entertain and educate - a great balance that leaves the reader knowledgeable on the basics of sleep. The last chapter was more of rant on the obstacles of research - I could have done without it, but it did provide some comical situations. All in all a great introduction to sleep and its curious manifestations.
