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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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 Independent *
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. * The Irish Times *
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! * Syndicated review by the Press Association *
Authoritative and accessible Nicola Morgan writes a fascinating and helpful guide to sleep for both teenagers and adults alike. * Eastern Daily Press *
