Sleep: the science and the myths
Professor Graham Law
, University of Lincoln

We all sleep. We should not be surprised that a long list of myths has grown up around this daily activity: “You need 8 hours sleep”, “I can’t function without my snooze button”, “Naps are for old men”.

Professor Graham Law is a sleep researcher working for many years on the health effects of good or bad sleep. With the help of his new book ‘Sleep Better: the science and the myths’ he will tackle some of your favourite sleep myths. Many of these will be debunked by science, but some will also have grains of truth.
