Summary

In her New York Times best seller Thrive, Arianna Huffington introduced her readers to the importance of sleep in terms of redefining success through wisdom, wonder, well-being and giving. But the topic seemed to touch such a powerful chord and seemed to resonate so universally in today's 24/7, fast-paced, always-connected world that Arianna realized a full book on the critical importance of sleep to our health and lives, and on the long-term danger of sleep deprivation on performance and happiness, was needed.
In her new book, Arianna reveals all the ways that our inability to get enough sleep impacts our lives; undermines our decision making; compromises our health, our athletic performance, our work lives, our relationships and even our sex lives; and causes us to lose control over how we interact with others and engage with the world. She discusses the latest science on sleep, explores the importance of dreaming, tackles how technology changes our sleep cycles and explores ways to get better and more restorative sleep. Later in the book, she looks at sleep aides and the role of the sleep industry in compromising our efforts to get a full night's sleep.
She goes on to offer specific tips and strategies to take control of our sleep lives and learn to make the power of sleep work for us in rejuvenating our brain cells, regulating our weight, improving our concentration and strengthening our memory skills.

Disappointing

Nothing much new in this book I'm afraid. It didn't offer a different viewpoint or widely different case from what already exists.
I think it was an error for Arianna to read the book herself rather than use someone experienced in voicing audiobooks. Her accent on words made it difficult to understand the meaning without really concentrating hard at times. Her anecdotes weren't especially interesting or inspiring.
The data about sportspeople was the most interesting part of the book and made a compelling case.
Overall though I found it fairly bland and not living up to the title of revolution.

Yawn

The drone of this audible book is an effective medicine for insomnia. Time and again I was sent to sleep within minutes of listening.

Awesome book - wrong voice reading!!

I do not like this woman's voice. It's the wrong voice for this book!! You need a voice that flows & that is smooth & with either a British or American accent. Or even South African English?!! I can't listen to this anymore!! Spoils the book!!

Good introduction to sleep hygiene.

Huffington writes an interesting introduction to the many factors that can affect our sleep. She deals lightly the the neuroscience and psychology of sleep, then offering many recommendations to help you get to sleep better each night. As she is not a scientist, it doesn't ever go into great depth, although you do get some insight into her own story and how a lack of sleep affected her life. Audible 20
