"In this book, Kat has done an incredibly skillful job pulling together the most recent scientific research on sleep studies and intermixes it with what artists and poets and sages for centuries have to offer on the subject."--Loretta Oriz y Pino, MD "Chief Medical Office, Holy Cross Hospital "
"Duff leads an absorbing foray into the vibrant activity that we otherwise sleep right through."--Publishers Weekly
"The author's multidisciplinary approach and relatable writing is a breath of fresh air, and her enthusiasm for her subject echoes how many of us feel--we love to sleep....Full of unique insights and surprising facts, this book brings to the fore an entire world that exists behind closed eyes."--Kirkus Reviews
"What distinguishes Duff's work from the average popular science title is her beautifully nuanced, lyrical prose and astute recognition that sleeping and dreaming have a much deeper meaning in our lives beyond the research laboratory."--Booklist
"Kat Duff shines the light of her open-minded curiosity into a darkened and mysterious world with wit, charm, perspicuity, humor and wisdom. After reading The Secret Life of Sleep, you may find yourself inhabiting a new, enhanced view of the world and of yourself."--Arifa Goodman "Jungian analyst "
