Many of us have trouble sleeping. Living in a world that hasn’t had a good night’s sleep for years has taken its toll. The vast majority of school children and students now arrive for their classes severely sleep deprived, adult sleep debt is at a record high and the demand for sleeping pills is rising every year. Studies show that even a small lack of sleep can have a detrimental effect on our health and happiness. So what can we do about it?  Professor Richard Wiseman, author of Night School, will help you understand how sleep works, how to adopt better sleeping habits and get the best night’s sleep of your life.  Professor Richard Wiseman has been described by Scientific American as ‘the most interesting and innovative experimental psychologist in the world today’. He has written several bestselling psychology books and his YouTube channels are some of the most watched in the UK.

 

Night School:  Wake Up to the Power of Sleep is published by Macmillan

Richard will be signing copies of the book immediately after the event.
