Would you listen to Night School again? Why?
I'm going to be listening to the back half of this book over and over again. The ongoing research and instructions for lucid dreaming will take time to learn but puts into words something that I have done myself since my teen years.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
The idea that your dream life can be a video game of your waking life allowing you to create new paths to go on, to practice and rehearse, and to explore so that you have the opportunity to experience in your waking time a far richer and more confident "time when it counts".
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
How to succeed in Dreamland without really trying
Any additional comments?
The beginning of the book covers the history of sleep research, which I think everyone knows. I enjoyed his retelling of Thomas Edison's flexibility with the truth as far as how much he in fact slept. Taking another look at The Wizard of Menlo Park's life as opposed to his legends is pretty common lately but both Peter Noble and author Richard Wiseman gave an especially funny "behind the curtain" look at a not so well known figure in history.

Exceptionally well narrated and masterly written. Certainly worth a purchase. Peter Noble is awesome...Some extraordinary insights shared in the book on sleep science. A must for all psychology lovers and for all who wanted to know more about sleep. But, the manifesto... described in last chapter , Whew... that looks like a dream... All in all, one of the best top-5 books for me..

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, contains a lot of informative facts about sleep and it's effects on our general health and well being.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Night School?
What about Peter Noble’s performance did you like?
Calm, cool manner
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It's not that kind of book. Perhaps Audible could research the questions posed so that they are appropriate to, for instance, an educational book ?
Any additional comments?
Thoroughly enjoyable learning book.

We all know that getting enough sleep is essential to good health, and this book confirms that. The content is very practical and not just theory, with instruction on how to maximize your sleep for the greatest personal benefit. It is not a one fits all approach, but is tailored to all different types of sleep patterns. An excellent and motivating read.
