Coren's first book outside of professional psychology circles was 1993's The Left-Hander Syndrome: the causes and consequences of left-handedness, which presented data on the significant challenges faced by left-handed people in society.

Sleep Thieves - Stanley Coren. This is a book about sleep. It deals with some interesting and fascinating facts associated with sleep, as well as with the serious implications of a society that is running on too little sleep. I try to answer questions like What is sleep? and Why should we spend one-third of our lives at this unproductive activity?

Coren, a Canadian neuropsychologist whose previous work had wide appeal among dog lovers (The Intelligence of Dogs, 1994), will win the kudos of sleep lovers with this one. After a brief look at sleep in the rest of the animal kingdom, he focuses on what happens to the human mind and body when deprived of sleep. Furthermore, to ignore our biological clocks is to court disaster, for Coren notes that sleep deprivation weakens the immune system, leaving the body more vulnerable to infection and illness, even death.

Through review of the sleep literature that is practical and useful. An entertaining presentation of the nature of sleep and it's key principles through stories of the analysis of sleep by various researchers; many interesting studies and perspectives.

Nice book with good resources and breadth but not quite deep enough.

Seems well-informed. And seems to attempt for balance. Or at least to represent alternate points of view. Do I sleep too little? I now feel sufficiently informed to make a reasonable assessment.

I have such a different view of sleep now, and I am experimenting too see what increases/decreases will do for me and my family.

I'm not saying that the book was poor, but it didn't have a lasting affect. Something along the lines of getting sleep is a good thing is the take-away. Anyone buying this book already knows it or they wouldn't buy it.

Update: melatonin or Highland calms or vit D. Vit d and melatonin if stopped can make you have trouble, though. Beds only for sex and sleep. Pull down black out roller shades at Home Depot. Cut to measure.

We spend a full third of our life sleeping, but what do we really know about it. Why do we sleep? What causes us to sleep? What happens when we sleep? All these questions remain unanswered, but scientists are working--dare I say it? oh, why not--around the clock to explain why we can't work around the clock.
Lighter in tone, and much more accessible to the most techno- or medio-phobic of lay readers is Sleep Thieves by Stanley Cohen. While Cohen's book does not have the same claim to impartial accuracy of the researcher, it gains ground by its engrossing style and an ability to merge folklore with medical studies. The whole, as it appears, is then dissected, and Cohen ends up destroying as many myths as Prof. Lavie in The Enchanted World of Sleep (in many cases, the same ones). Cohen does have a purpose with his book, and that is to say that as a culture, we are running up a "sleep debt"; that is, by denying ourselves the amount of sleep that our bodies need, we endanger ourselves and others. Before he gets to this conclusion, his common ground with Prof. Lavie is visited, including studies on sleep deprivation and its results, people's perceptions of sleep, and the amount of sleep that our bodies fall into without the self-regulating clock of the sun. His conclusion is tied together neatly, with a fine work of statistical research using the time lost and gained during the change from and to Daylight Savings Time. Lack of sleep, due to cultural demands, is a major cause of accidents that are often fatal.
Cohen's book, with its amazing conclusion that lives with you, makes it obvious that "sleep debt" is not just a funny phrase, but a real problem, and one that is being ignored by almost everyone. It is time, as Cohen ironically states, for us to wake up about sleep.
This book presents an amazing clear, well-reasoned, and compelling case for more sleep and for taking lack of sleep seriously. I particularly like knowing the "low points" (1am to 4am and 1pm to 4pm) that we are naturally sleepy; and the various symptoms of lack of sleep (besides sleepiness), the personality changes such as irritablity, lack of motivation, lack of sense of humor. And it's so readable that I stayed up too late reading it :-) I wish it wasn't written so long ago, I'd love to read the most recent research - but this is one of those books I want everyone to read. Lack of sleep isn't just a mild annoyance one lives with, it's a problem that should be treated, and it's easy enough to treat (go to bed!)
