I never honestly thought that a book about sleeping could be so fascinating. The authors explore how different sleeping conditions effect your performance in life and what their impact is on ALL relationships...Not just between male/female romantic relationships, but also relationships with your children, pets and...most importantly, with yourself.

Based on large studies done in home environments, these guys couldn't have made sleep more fun to read about.

Oh, and your husband's snoring?
They can't really help you with that.
But they give you some good ideas with how to deal.

Format: Paperback
This book tries to tackle a very common problem among couples and their sleep habits. It does go into the scientific basis of sleep to understand the foundation of sleep and the quandary of the definition of "what is really good sleep". In other words, some define good sleep as how long they sleep versus the quality of sleep and how refreshed they feel in the morning. What is most interesting is the history of how socio-cultural norms have changed over centuries and how sleep differs in various parts of the world. This book concentrates on western society perspectives in general. It does get into boggy details and is redundant at times. The best feature of the book is the bullet point summaries at the end of most chapters offering practical tips for couples to use. Some of the research the authors allude to may surprise regarding the male and female perspective regarding sleeping alone versus together, and how these "norms" are changing over time. If you are a couple complaining about each others sleep, this book can offer some insight and decent pointers.

This book has a lot of information about sleep: its history, how it works, sleep patterns. It is short on practical advice for how to deal with insomnia, other than advocating that partners consider separate bedrooms if they are having trouble sleeping with one another. Since practical advice is what I was looking for, it was a dud for me.

I was nicely surprised by this book. I don't think we actually know a lot about why we need to sleep and certainly haven't explored the details of how sleep is different for all of us.

This book does a great job of hitting the highlights of the authors' research without lingering too long in any one area. I think everyone that takes the time to read this book will come away with new knowledge on sleeping patterns and how these are affected by gender, relationships, nationality and environmental influences.

A well crafted book.

I found very little useful information in this book, but it does include lots of useless theory and background info. Disappointing, since I was looking for some constructive, actionable suggestions.
