12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Charles L. Felsenthal on September 21, 2004
Format: Paperback
Though it seems to have been well researched, this is not a scholarly work, at least not the usual kind. It is, rather, an informative, offbeat, and (at least to my mind) very funny account of humankind's efforts over the centuries to get a decent night's sleep. The arrangements, contraptions, and methods employed have been astonishingly varied and mostly unsatisfactory. Mr. Wright (a onetime R.A.F officer as I recall) is a graceful and witty writer, joining a somewhat Will Cuppy-ish sensibility to a smooth and civilized style. This has been for many years one of my favorite books (in the 1962 Routledge & Kegan Paul hardcover edition), and I'm delighted to see it back in print.

I don't know what type or sort of person would enjoy this book, but I certainly did.

This is fun history: entirely factual, quirky, and fast paced. I say that last as an approving nod to Wright, who adeptly breaks the book up into easy to digest pieces.
