Sleep Fun Facts:

  1. Most adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep per night – typically we should feel wide-awake and energetic all day without a significant midday drop in alertness.
  2. Light is the most powerful cue affecting sleep: darkness triggers the release of melatonin, a hormone that brings on sleep.
  3. It takes one hour of sleep to pay for every two hours of wakefulness.
  4. A well rested person takes 15 to 20 minutes to fall asleep.
  5. Brief naps taken daily are far healthier than sleeping in or taking very long naps on the weekend.

Go the Fuck to Sleep Goes the Fuck to Number 1 on the New York Times Bestseller List

Today, fifteen international editions are in progress, plus a “completely kid-friendly” version, enhanced e-book, and audiobook narrated by Samuel L. Jackson (above).
