Why We Sleep

Why We Sleep: The New Science of Sleep and Dreams is a science book about sleep by the neuroscientist and sleep researcher, Matthew Walker. Walker is a professor of neuroscience and psychology and the director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley.
Walker spent four years writing the book, in which he asserts that sleep deprivation is linked to numerous fatal diseases, including dementia. The book became an international bestseller, including a #1 Sunday Times Bestseller in the UK, and a New York Times Bestseller.
Why We Sleep has drawn criticism from Andrew Gelman, a statistician at Columbia University, who called Walker's purported removal of a bar from a graph a "smoking gun," commenting that it entered "research misconduct" territory.
