Why Can't We Sleep? Understanding Our Sleeping and Sleepless Minds Free download ñ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Darian Leader î 9 Read & Download Read Why Can't We Sleep? Understanding Our Sleeping and Sleepless Minds Lective psychology From the industrial revolution to blue light on our phones from the ancient art of dream interpretation to the modern science of Freud sleep is connected to wider social patterns to shifting norms and expectations Weaving together cultural social economic and psychoanalytic influences Darian Leader delves into the truth about this universal human experience. Ironically I kept sleeping almost every time I picked up this book It s uite interesting but the author organizes his thoughts in such complexity that I find them hard to understand at some instances perhaps it s because I m not familiar with the field of psychology or perhaps the topic is so dense On the other hand this book was actually really insightful and I learned new things but I don t think I ll pick it up again simply not my cup of tea
