"Sleepfaring: A Journey Through the Science of Sleep brings the reader on a fascinating journey through the sleep experience, beginning with an exploration of sleep throughout the animal kingdom. The journey is informative, as it clarifies more than a century of sleep study findings, and ultimately culminates with important conclusions regarding why we sleep...Sleepfaring is well organized, written in easily comprehendible terms, and understandable at a level that would allow it to be beneficial to both graduate and undergraduate students. It would serve both the university and public library well and would be an excellent choice as adjunct reading in a broad range of psychology courses."--PsycCRITIQUES
