Product Description

Engaging and user friendly, it also gets to grips with conundrums such as: do power naps work? Can some people manage on very little sleep? And how much sleep do we need at different ages?The tone is accessible but never condescending; Morgan has empathy for young people and is unafraid to note the hypocrisy of adults when it comes to “sleep hygiene” measures such as avoiding screens before bedtime. She’s also careful to note when the evidence is limited, or to explain that “averages” refer to statistically likely, rather than definite, outcomes. This encouraging of scientific literacy is very welcome – and necessary.Authoritative, accessible and informed by the latest thinking, this is a fascinating and helpful guide for both children and adults, and could be just what you need for that good night’s sleep!Authoritative and accessible Nicola Morgan writes a fascinating and helpful guide to sleep for both teenagers and adults alike.Featured in The Bookseller's January Previews 2021,

The essential guide to sleep from award-winning teenage well-being expert Nicola Morgan, author of bestselling Blame My Brain, The Teenage Guide to Stress and The Teenage Guide to Friends.

Late nights, addictive technology and minds racing with exam stress and friendship worries: it's no wonder the teenage stereotype is tired eyes and sleeping through the weekend. Just like adults, teenagers are sleeping less now than ever before, yet sleep is crucial to our health and well-being. Internationally renowned expert on the teenage brain, Nicola Morgan, tackles this essential subject – asking why teenagers so desperately need a good night's sleep, exploring what a lack of sleep does to their developing brains, and explaining how to have the best sleep possible.

Authoritative, accessible and informed by the latest scientific evidence, Nicola Morgan writes a fascinating and helpful guide for both teenagers and adults alike.

Nicola Morgan has written over a hundred books. Her previous titles for Walker include The Teenage Guide to Stress, winner of the School Library Association Award 2015, with both the judges’ and readers’ awards, Blame My Brain, which was shortlisted for the Aventis Prize for Science, The Teenage Guide to Friends and the novel Wasted, which won the Scottish Children's Book Award and other awards and shortlistings. Nicola speaks in schools and at conferences all over the world about issues concerning teenagers and creates original resources for teachers. She is a former dyslexia specialist and is an Ambassador for Dyslexia Scotland. Visit Nicola's website at www.nicolamorgan.com.
