Most people spend a third of their life sleeping around 25 years or more! Like it or not, we all have to sleep. Yet sleep is also very mysterious. No one really knows why we do it. And how do we explain all those strange dreams? What scientists do understand, however, is that sleeping is essential for health and happiness. Learn about the strange sleep cycles throughout the animal kingdom, and the theories behind why people get tired or have terrifying nightmares.
Series Information
What would your life be like if you had to do without all the modern inventions you take for granted? How would you cope without a toilet? Could you get by without electricity? If antibiotics had not been discovered, would you still be alive today?
Starting from these thought-provoking questions, each title in the fantastic You Wouldn't Want to Live Without... series takes us on a historical journey. We learn how people really did cope in the past, and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. And so to the future: What further changes can we expect to see in our own lifetimes? This science and technology strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn't Want to Be... series features fantastic full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles, making the books attractive even to reluctant readers.
