"Smart and original, Dangerously Sleepy has pace, power, and a wonderful sardonic sense of humor. Alan Derickson connects working hours to work safety and sleeplessness to masculinity."—Michael Zuckerman, University of Pennsylvania
"What do Silicon Valley, long-haul truckers, and Donald Trump all have in common? An 'I'll sleep when I'm dead' ethic that conflates manliness with lack of sleep. Dangerously Sleepy shows that this is not just silly: it's downright dangerous."—Joan C. Williams, Founding Director of the Center for WorkLife Law
