Explores the strange and relatively unknown world of sleep-a world in which we spend approximately one-third of our lives. Shows how the discovery of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) during our dream period in the early 1950s by Dr. Nathaniel Kleitman at the University of Chicago brought about an understanding of the mechanism of sleep. Before his discovery, it was believed that during sleep the brain was in a state of rest. Also, overviews the nature and frequency of dreams and nightmares, and sleep disorders such as insomnia, apnea, and narcolepsy that affect millions of Americans.
