Summary

Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio
Sleep is central to every part of our lives, and a good night's sleep begins by putting aside the day's worries. But in today's technology-saturated world, saying goodnight to the day is harder than ever. Allow author Arianna Huffington (Thrive, The Sleep Revolution) to guide you to a peaceful night's slumber as she performs Goodnight Smartphone: a classic tale reborn for the modern age, when the hardest thing to say goodnight to is not the moon but our phones, our email, our social media, our always-on digital selves.
During a visit to Audible to speak about the benefits of sleep, Arianna joked about what a wonderful book Goodnight Moon is and how other childhood classics help transition kids from daytime to sleep time. She posited why there weren't such books for adults. "Goodnight cares of the day, goodnight worries about tomorrow, goodnight laptop!" she exclaimed. Soon after, Goodnight Smartphone was born. Listen as Arianna borrows from the traditions of children's bedtime stories to create this modern age adaptation for adults, and learn more about her daily sleep regimen in her introduction. Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio. Free until April 16, 2017.
Inspired by children's bedtime classics, this audiobook is a playful and relaxing guide to help you transition from the worries of a stressful day to a good night's sleep, and you can hear it only on Audible.

Strange

Narration was really bad but I can see what they were going for with this book. It's free so you can't complain too much, and it might make you tired at night. It's a short poem so it's easy to re-listen. Just don't expect too much.

this is really weird. I didn't get it at all.

I don't want to list all the horrible and stressful things in my life just before I go to sleep thanks! even if it is to say goodnight to them.

Quick Ideas About Sleep

A short overview of some of the ideas presented in Huffington's recent book The Sleep Revolution with a twist of using the children's book GoodNight Moon as the format. I didn't think it was as awful as some reviews here on Audible made it seem. In fact, it was only 6 minutes long, offered a variety of helpful ideas about getting more sleep and it was free. You can't beat that for a deal. Glad I listened.

This was just painful

When I saw that someone had decided to revisit Goodnight Moon, I figured it was worth a look. This whole digital "board book" is painful and certainly not a book that I would share with the children in my life. It seems oddly preachy for what I would have assumed was a book intended for children. Seriously, even as a FREE book this is a waste of your time. This awkward stream of consciousness seems more like someone is projecting their own stresses onto paper. I almost regret the fact that it is in my Audible library now because I know I will never listen to it again.
