            Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams
             

            Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Walker, Matthew

            • RRP: $38.99

            A New York Times bestseller and international sensation, this stimulating and important book (Financial Times) from the director of UC Berkeley's Center for Human Sleep Science is a fascinating dive into the purpose and power of slumber. As the Guardian said, Walker explains how ...a good night's shut-eye can make us cleverer, more attractive, slimmer, happier, healthier, and ward off cancer. With two appearances on CBS This Morning and Fresh Air's most popular interview of 2017, Matthew Walker has made abundantly clear that sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep, or what good it served, or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent. Compared to the other basic drives in life--eating, drinking, and reproducing--the purpose of sleep remains more elusive. Within the brain, sleep enriches a diversity of functions, including our ability to learn, memorize, and make logical decisions. It recalibrates our emotions, restocks our immune system, fine-tunes our metabolism, and regulates our appetite. Dreaming creates a virtual reality space in which the brain melds past and present knowledge, inspiring creativity. In this compelling and utterly convincing (The Sunday Times) book, preeminent neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker provides a revolutionary exploration of sleep, examining how it affects every aspect of our physical and mental well-being. Charting the most cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs, and marshalling his decades of research and clinical practice, Walker explains how we can harness sleep to improve learning, mood and energy levels, regulate hormones, prevent cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes, slow the effects of aging, and increase longevity. He also provides actionable steps towards getting a better night's sleep every night. Clear-eyed, fascinating, and accessible, Why We Sleep is a crucial and illuminating book.

            'It is finished, ' Jesus says. It's a bold declaration for us to make too. What does it mean to say 'It is finished' when so much is unfinished? It means we are people who live hope in two directions, both backward and forward. We long for the kingdom to come in fullness, even as... it has already come. And we trust that the One who has begun the good work in us and for us will indeed complete it. In this sequel to Shades of Light, Katherine Rhodes, the beloved director of the New Hope Retreat Center, finds her own grief tapped by Wren Crawford's struggles with depression and loss. Through a series of letters to Wren, Katherine reflects on the meaning of Christ's suffering and shares her own story of finding hope. How does one begin to live again under the crushing weight of grief? And how can healing come when there's so much left unresolved? With Katherine as a companion in sorrow, Wren moves forward in her commitment to paint the stations of the cross for a prayer journey at New Hope, discovering along the way a deeper communion with the Man of Sorrows, acquainted with grief. Readers are invited into a similar journey of reflection through Katherine's words and Wren's paintings. At the back of the book, a devotional guide with Scripture readings, prayer prompts, and full-color art provides the opportunity to ponder the depths of God's love by meditating on Jesus' journey to the cross

            What exactly does it mean for two languages to coexist in the same brain? How do babies exposed to different languages differentiate between them? And how does cognitive decline affect the two languages? Bilingualism is quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception as more ...than half of the world's population is able to communicate in more than one language. In The Bilingual Brain, leading expert Albert Costa guides us through the latest research exploring the many fascinating questions raised by bilingualism: from how children exposed to two different languages determine between them to how it influences our decisions. Filled with memorable examples from cutting-edge studies, The Bilingual Brain shows that bilingualism can help us better understand how language works.

            The long-held dream of artificial intelligence researchers is to build machines that are conscious and self-aware - the dream of creating life itself. While this remains a remote prospect, the AI floodgates have opened, and they are changing our world fundamentally. Yet the publi...c debate and media hype is still largely centred on elusive prospects such as sentient machines and dystopian robot takeovers. In this lively and clear-headed guide, Michael Wooldridge changes the narrative on AI, revealing how these anxieties distract us from the more realistic risks that this transformative technology poses, from algorithmic bias to fake news. He also shows us how they overlook the true life-changing potential of the field he loves. Instead, The Road to Conscious Machines gives us the real story of AI, through all its booms and busts, elucidating the discoveries of its greatest pioneers from Alan Turing to Demis Hassabis. It shows us what today's AI researchers actually think and do, and how they are ushering in a new era of real-time spoken word language translation, augmented reality tools, healthcare innovations and much more.
