Thank you for this.

I am very disappointed in Matthew Walker. In fact, if I were working in the same field as him, these findings would cast a doubt on most of his other work. The density of the errors almost makes me unsure which is worse: the errors are unintentional due to carelessness or they are deliberate to create a better sounding story. (Of course, the latter is worse as it is basically academic fraud.)

I believe there should be more books that are scientifically sound, yet accessible to most people. I thought this was one such book, but alas.

You might enjoy the section where I cover a little bit of his academic work, in case you missed it: https://guzey.com/books/why-we-sleep/#appendix-but-this-is-j... :)
