How to Sleep by Rafael Pelayo Pub Date: 08 Dec 2020

 I have chronic insomnia - so this was a very helpful book to me. 

Mr. Pelayo wrote in such a way it was charming and the chapters flowed with ease. 

What set this book apart from other books I've read is that Pelayo thinks good sleep is more than just "good sleep hygiene (which I have heard from COUNTLESS doctors). 

The book delves into our brains, and explains how sleep works (and doesn't work). 

I also appreciated that there was a section on dreams. 

One thing not really covered is shift work. Many in my family are first responders  and they deal with shift work that changes every two weeks. 

A quick read but chock full of information.
