Very interesting point of view and could help you greatly... if you follow the advice.
There are so many facts and figures in this book that the narrative itself sometimes gets lost, and some points are not clear. Perhaps a case of too much information, where more information should have been relegated to an appendix or endnotes so as not to spoil the flow (there are already copious appendices and endnotes!)
I found the book becoming a bit repetitive, in that each chapter laid on more and more statistics of the problems of not getting enough sleep. Once the point has been well made, there's no need to keep ramming it home time after time.
This makes the book much longer than it needs to be.
There is a lot less attention paid to practical advice and solutions, and, once convinced of the problem, that is the area where the reader would benefit most. The chapter on technology to help with sleep is very short, which is a shame - more pages should have been devoted to this, and fewer pages elsewhere.
