Why Office Workers Can't Sleep (and Why That's Bad) | Literary Hub

Less of a scientific read than Why We Sleep. I found the callouts to bright light in the morning interesting.

Exposure to bright, morning light was particularly powerful: those exposed to it between 8 a.m. and noon took an average of 18 minutes to fall asleep at night, compared to 45 minutes in the low light exposure group; they also slept for around 20 minutes longer and experienced fewer sleep disturbances. These associations were stronger during winter, when people may have had less opportunity to receive natural light during their journey to work.

I think I might want to read this book.
