In 2014, Das Schlafmagazin awarded
Dr. Weeß with a Somnus to
honour his special merits in sleep medicine. Dr. Weeß has authored
several technical books and publishes his own scientific studies in trade
journals. Stiftung Gesundheit describes his latest book Die schlaflose Gesellschaft – Wege zu erholsamen Schlaf und mehr
Leistungsvermögen as “an excellent book on sleep that provides all readers
with intellectually high-quality and, at the same time gripping, insights”. In
its book review, Pharmazeutische Zeitung wrote: “A substantiated book, easy to
understand and humorous – a wake-up call in view of the issues of a society
with a chronic lack of sleep”. Dr. Weeß’ new book, Schlaf wirkt Wunder, will be released by Droemer Knaur in autumn.
