    Hugh Barker

    Hand-picked favourites
    This book has no claims to be fun or more interesting... In fact, it's so boring it will send you to sleep. There's absolutely nothing that will stimulate the senses.

    It will afford you much sleep and copious amounts of pointless knowledge: from the intricate details of the Belgian political crisis from 2007-2011 to an overview of railway gauges, there's so much for you to absorb while you drift into the land of nod...

    The Four Pillar Plan (Paperback)

    Dr. Rangan Chatterjee

    The 4 Pillar Plan is the Sunday Times bestseller by BBC One's resident doctor, Dr Rangan Chatterjee. Rangan has been praised for his "easy, common-sense plan" by Jamie Oliver and has been said to be "revolutionising the way we think about health" by Amelia Freer.

These small changes can make a big difference to your life by preventing illness and maintaining good health. Balancing these four key areas involves an electronic 'sabbath' once a week, 12 hours everyday without food, morning sunlight exposure and walking 10,000 steps a day.

    Using his 17 years' experience as a doctor and cutting edge research, Dr Chatterjee fascinates readers with real-life case studies in this inspiring guide to better health and happiness.

    Why We Dream (Hardback)

    Alice Robb

    We all dream, and 98 per cent of us can recall our dreams the next morning. Even in today's modern age, it is human nature to wonder what they mean. Now, groundbreaking science is putting dreams at the forefront of new research into sleep, memory, the concept of self and human socialization. Once a subject of the New Age and spiritualism, the science of dreams is revealed to have a crucial role in the biology and neuroscience of our waking lives. In Why We Dream, Alice Robb, a leading American science journalist, will take readers on a journey to uncover why we dream, why dreaming matters, and how we can improve our dream life - and why we should. Through her encounters with scientists at the cutting edge of dream research, she reveals how: - Dreams can be powerful tools to help us process the pain of a relationship break-up, the grief of losing a loved one and the trauma after a dramatic event - Nightmares may be our body's warning system for physical and mental illness (including cancer, depression and Alzheimer's) - Athletes can improve their performance by dreaming about competing - Drug addicts who dream about drug-taking can dramatically speed up their recovery from addiction. Robb also uncovers the fascinating science behind lucid dreaming - when we enter a dream state with control over our actions, creating a limitless playground for our fantasies. And as one of only 10 per cent of people with the ability to lucid-dream, she is uniquely placed to teach us how to do it ourselves. With incredible new discoveries and stunning science, Why We Dream will give you dramatic insight into yourself and your body. You'll never think of dreams in the same way again.

Sleeping pill prescriptions have increased dramatically over the last three decades, as have the incidence of sleep clinics.

    Dreams (Paperback)

    Tree Carr

    Discover how to create your own dream practice to help facilitate your work and relationships, self-exploration, soul growth, emotional healing and personal empowerment. Human beings have a long history of looking to their dreams for guidance, inspiration, spiritual connection and decision making. Kings consulted seers and gifted dreamers for political advice, and tribe leaders took heed from the prophetic dreams of their shamans. Dreams have led to inventions and scientific discoveries as well as the creation of moving works of art. So why is the modern human so disconnected from our dreams? Our quiet, reflective consciousness has been superseded by the busy, noisy and distractive components of modern culture. Dreams will teach you how, through simple intent, mindfulness, reflection, record keeping, plant work and lifestyle changes, we can enable a deeper connectivity and understanding of our dream world.

    Insomnia (Hardback)

    Marina Benjamin

    An intense, lyrical, witty, and humane exploration of a state we too often consider only superficially. With her new memoir Insomnia, Marina Benjamin has produced an unsettling account of an unsettling condition that treats our inability to sleep not as a disorder, but as an existential experience that can electrify our understanding of ourselves, and of creativity and love. Insomnia is a bravura piece of writing. At once philosophical and poetical, the book ranges widely over history and culture, literature and art, exploring a threshold experience that is intimately involved with trespass and contamination: the illicit importing of day into night. With Insomnia, Benjamin aims to light up the workings of our inner minds, delivering a startlingly fresh look at what it means to be wakeful in the dark.

    The Book of My Dreams (Hardback)

    THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Our dreams are the diaries of our lives: as personal and unique as fingerprints, they are a record of our subconscious. More often than not, they are everything we never confess out loud, not even to ourselves. We all sleep every night. We don't always remember what we dreamed about and we almost never wonder why we have these dreams. But dreams can be a map of the things we want in the future, they can cure past neuroses and help us to understand the present. That's why they are so important. That's why they can be critical to our lives. The Book of My Dreams is a personal secret diary. It is a guide to drawing, outlining and identifying the motives and reasons behind the adventures that you experience each night. But mostly, it is like a writing manual that allows you to put down on paper the ultimate diary - one that comes from the fears, desires and joys that inspire your dreams. It also acts as a guide to understanding them and understanding yourself. The Book of My Dreams is unique. Like your dreams. Like you.

    Nodding Off (Hardback)

    Alice Gregory

    Sleep consumes a third of our lives, yet we tend to only think about it when it's proving a struggle - when a baby is born, if we develop insomnia, or when ageing brings new challenges to our slumber. The latest research tells us that sleep is essential for learning and memory, for mental health and well-being, and for optimal physical health. We also know that our sleep evolves throughout our lives, changing from baby to child to teenager and beyond. Sleep plays a crucial role in our waking lives, and we need to start paying it more attention. Nodding Off leads you on a fascinating journey through the science of sleep throughout our lives. Based on knowledge accumulated over almost two decades as a sleep researcher, Professor Alice Gregory shares real-life stories as well as insightful discussions with other sleep experts. She answers questions such as: Why are certain babies so much harder to settle to sleep than others? Why do children experiencing anxiety, behavioural problems or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder so often have co-occurring sleep problems? Why do so many adolescents enjoy lying in at the weekends? Why are scientists turning to sleep disorders such as sleep paralysis to try to understand paranormal experiences? Could prioritising sleep could help us control our weight and increase our attractiveness? Are sleep problems an inevitable part of ageing? Throughout this book there are important tips on helping you improve your sleep, which will allow you to feel better during the time you're awake. It is an essential read for anyone considering embracing the zeitgeist of prioritising sleep, and is perhaps even more important for those daring to resist.
