The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox. Dr. Mark Burhenne, DDS

5 of 5 stars

On the norm, we do not review older books and while this one isn't terribly old, it was published outside of our normal range. Regardless, if you were to peak a look, you would understand its importance. For instance, did you know that mild sleep apnea isn't an insignificant disorder? Did you know that crowded teeth are problematic for your general health?

The 8-Hour Sleep Paradox. Dr. Mark Burhenne, DDS Hmmmm.....?

Did you know that snoring is not healthy?

We didn't realize any of this. But, there's more. Hence, the book is just as important and as relevant as it was when it was published.

Here's the kicker.

When we knew that the book was published by a doctor, we didn't think much about it. In fact, we assumed that the doctor who wrote this book was the kind that one went to when one was coughing up small amphibians. Wrong.

The doctor who wrote this book is a dentist and when all of the pieces fell into place, he realized the true importance of the connection between the mouth and the general health of an individual. He knew that there was a connection and he knew that it was not minutia. But, he truly closed the gap between what the head knows and what the heart knows, after he lived it.

We surmise that this is normally what causes that gap to meet.

This is an excellent book for readers at any level. It is not overly technical and it is not too complex. No. Dr. Burhenne brings the complex down to the level of the masses.

You need to read this book!
