We spend one third of our lives asleep, but know hardly anything about it. Why? Why are we paralysed when we dream? Why did sleep evolve? And is anybody getting enough? Paul Martin tackles the science of sleeping, and draws on both neuroscience and classic literature to do so.
Paul Martin studied Biology at Cambridge, acquiring a First in Natural Sciences and a PhD in Behavioural Biology. He went to Stanford as a Harkness Fellow and then to the School of Medicine as Postdoctoral Fellow, before lecturing and researching at Cambridge University. He is the co-author with Pat Bateson of Measuring Behaviour and Design for a Life. His first solo book was The Sickening Mind, which was shortlisted for the NCR Prize in 1997.
