  • Petra-X
    Like Oliver Sacks the author is both a neurologist and talented writer.

  • K.J. Charles
    An interesting read in the vein of the Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat about the outer shores of sleep weirdness (people who sleep-ride motorbikes, or act out incredibly bizarre dreams, or have constantly shifting body clocks for no reason). The author writes with a lot of compassion and humanity...
