Olivier Le Bon
This chapter reviews the importance of fatigue (sleepiness) as a cause of
distress and accidents. It insists on the fact that the best way to avoid it is to sleep
enough and well. It presents the stimulants that could help you fight sleepiness if
nothing else has worked (caffeine, modafinil).
