It is sadly true that it is not always easy to fall asleep. This gently amusing, highly effective anthology of soporific dullness has been carefully curated to put readers to sleep as quickly as possible. With a pillowy case wrap, stultifying illustrations, and pages of sheep to count, this giftable godsend for the under-rested features dozens of snoozy short texts, including "The Motion of Sand Dunes," "The Administrative Bureaucracy of the Byzantine Empire," "White Noise: A TechnicalExplanation," and many dozens more— though good luck reading very far on any one evening. Insomniacs will also appreciate "A Staring Contest with Fifty Cats," "Some Interesting Mathematical Theorems," "The Dullest Entries from Interesting Diaries," and other zzzzzzzz.

."If you're having trouble falling asleep at night, check outThis Book Will Put You to Sleep: a compendium of short, boring texts guaranteed to dull you into a peaceful slumber. Be warned, however, as some readers actually found the material to be engaging and witty."
-Bustle
