An engrossing examination of the science behind the little-known world of sleep. Like many of us, journalist David K. Randall never gave sleep much thought. That is, until he began sleepwalking. One midnight crash into a hallway wall sent him on an investigation into the strange science of sleep. In Dreamland, Randall explores the research that is investigating those dark hours that make up nearly a third of our lives. Taking readers from military battlefields to children’s bedrooms, Dreamland shows that sleep isn't as simple as it seems. Why did the results of one sleep study change the bookmakers’ odds for certain Monday Night Football games? Do women sleep differently than men? And if you happen to kill someone while you are sleepwalking, does that count as murder? This book is a tour of the often odd, sometimes disturbing, and always fascinating things that go on in the peculiar world of sleep. You’ll never look at your pillow the same way again.

An enlightened approach to insomnia, depressed mood, fatigue, and other sleep-related problems of everyday life, harnessing the power of light therapy to reset the natural clock. Sleep problems and depressed mood often go hand in hand, forming a frustrating cycle. Michael Terman, PhD, has devoted his career to studying the brain functions that feed these disorders. His discoveries in chronotherapy have been widely recognized as game-changers by the medical establishment, and his 2010 New York Times op-ed, "Sleeping (or Not) by the Wrong Clock," shot to number one on the paper's list of most-forwarded online articles. In Chronotherapy, Terman and McMahan reveal the heart of his findings, a powerful program that recalibrates our internal clocks--our exquisitely designed, natural sensitivity to the timing and brightness of light exposure. These delicate mechanisms are often decimated by the modern demands of a 24/7 lifestyle. Beginning with a questionnaire that pinpoints the problem areas, Terman helps readers decipher when their natural internal night begins and ends. The treatment process can then start, incorporating the power of natural light and, when necessary, supplemental light therapy. His approach has brought relief to thousands of sleep sufferers, as well as those burdened by bipolar disorder, seasonal affective disorder, depression, sleep disorders due to around-the-clock work schedules, and other impediments to vibrant health. For the first time, his findings are now available for a general audience, sharing the essential elements of chronobiology in clear, authoritative, scientifically grounded chapters that are easy to apply to a variety of situations. Chronotherapy chapters include: PART ONE: TIME, SLEEP, AND RHYTHMS Chapter 1: External vs. Internal Time The clock on the wall measures twenty-four hours every day, but the clock in your brain runs a little different. How can you help them work together? Chapter 2: The Pressure to Sleep The longer you stay awake, the more pressure you feel to sleep. But what if your inner clock says it is not yet ready for sleep? Chapter 3: Owls, Larks, and Hummingbirds What kind of "bird" are you? And once you know, how can that help you figure out when best to get stuff done? PART TWO: TIME, LIGHT, AND THE BRAIN Chapter 4: Getting Light into the Brain How do your eyes pass signals to your inner clock, and what makes those signals so important? Chapter 5: Getting Light Wrong Seeing light and being in darkness are basic daily experiences. But what happens when they come at the wrong times, and why does that have such negative consequences for mood, alertness, and sleep? Chapter 6: Geography and Time East or west, south or north, how can where you live have such a huge impact on your mood and sleep? PART THREE: INTERVENTIONS Chapter 7: Healing Light How can light help you solve your sleep problems, have more energy, and feel more positive about life? Why do the details matter so much? Chapter 8: Nighttime Meds and Melatonin Do you rely on pills to get to sleep? They may not work, and they may be bad for you. But a new approach based on the brain's inner clock holds great promise. Chapter 9: Hospitalized with Depression When someone becomes so depressed they need to go to the hospital, what promise does chronotherapy offer for a quick turnaround and continued improvement? Chapter 10: Beyond Light: The Charge in the Air What is it about spending a day at the beach that gives you such a lift? And how can you use new technology to bring that feeling of wellbeing into your home? PART FOUR: STAGES OF LIFE Chapter 11: The Promise of Pregnancy You are going to have a baby! You are thrilled, but a little apprehensive too. How can chronotherapy help you through the next nine months? Chapter 12: Strategies for Babies and Children When your baby or child sleeps well and feels good, you feel better too. How can chronotherapy help you reach this goal? Chapter 13: The Challenges of Adolescence As a teen, why do you feel the need to stay up so late and sleep so late? What are the consequences for your mood, health, and schoolwork? What simple steps can you take to put your life on a smoother course? Chapter 14: In Later Years Does getting older have to mean being tired, sleeping badly, and feeling down? How can you or someone you care about reverse these trends by using light? PART FIVE: CHRONOTHERAPY IN YOUR LIFE Chapter 15: Coping with Shift Work What if your job puts you on duty when your inner clock says you should be asleep? How can chronotherapy help you stay awake, alert, and in a decent mood? Chapter 16: Racing the Clock, Racing the Sun You are traveling across the world and you need to be in high gear tomorrow. How can chronotherapy prepare you for the trip and help you recover from jet lag as quickly as possible? Chapter 17: Chronobiology in the Home and Workplace How will the collaboration of chronobiologists and architects transform the places you live, work, and learn? Chapter 18: Dawn of a Circadian Science Why is mainstream medicine so slow to put the insights of chronotherapy into practice?

This groundbreaking new book by business scholar William C. Frederick presents an innovative, exciting _ even revolutionary _ view of corporate management and the challenges it confronts in today's world. The author proposes a management paradigm shift transforming the way corporations do business. Management scholarship and research may well be rechanneled from current orientations to new models, concepts, and theories of what it takes to manage corporations in a planetary world confronting climate change, energy crises, and securing the well-being of all global citizens. Natural Corporate Management (NCM) is an awareness and an acceptance by the managers of today's business corporations of the close functional linkage between natural forces and human economic choices. NCM is not a set of techniques or methods but is a growing consciousness by managers of the presence and influence of nature in all managerial decisions. The book's central theme is that business and nature are locked into an evolutionary partnership that defines all aspects of corporate management, including decisions, policy, goal-seeking, organizational design, workplace behavior, and productive operations. This partnership of Nature and Nurture yields economic, social, and ecological dividends for corporations, their stakeholders, and the global community. An Evolutionary Cascade depicts the various phases of evolutionary change _ physical, organic, genetic, human, neurological, symbolic _ beginning with the Big Bang origin of the Universe and continuing to modern times. These evolutionary events collectively influence the operational activities of all business firms. A Natural Theory of the Firm summarizes the NCM approach, as well as the mind-set of corporate managers, and the bio-socio-economic consequences of their decisions. This theoretically-innovative book proposes an agenda of corporate actions to promote long-term sustainability and economic well-being of business, its stakeholders, and planetary citizens everywhere. It will be essential reading for managers and researchers at all levels who wish to engage seriously with the challenges of organic life and its long-term sustainability.
