Publisher's Summary

In Thrive, Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post and one of the most influential women in the world, has written a passionate call to arms, looking to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s world. She likens our drive for money and power to two legs of a three-legged stool. It may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we’re going to topple over. We need a third leg – a Third Metric for defining success – in order to live a healthy, productive, and meaningful life.
In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritising the demands of a career and two daughters. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplaces, and our lives.

Turned me into a "sleep" enthusiast ;)

If you could sum up Thrive in three words, what would they be?

Practical, Informative, Commonsensical.


What did you like best about this story?

I don't have a particular favorite but I do love in general that she cited a lot of examples of big shot industry players who made "rest and sleep" a priority and improved the quality of their lives.


Have you listened to any of Agapi Stassinopoulos’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first, and I totally dig that she speaks like Arianna. Great job!


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

None.


Any additional comments?

After listening to the book, I tried to tweak my sleeping habit. I used to sleep 3-4 hours a day. Now after reading the book, I am making conscious healthy changes in my lifestyle. Now I get to sleep 8 hrs a day with a 1 hour nap in the afternoon. My brain is more alert and I have more energy which in return makes me more productive. I can accomplish more projects which gives me more income. More importantly, while doing my own day to day tasks - I still get to enjoy the company of my husband at the end of the day and not complain anymore of being so tired and stressed. This book helped me jumpstart creating changes towards a healthy life, rather than the downward spiral that I'm heading which is being burned out. Life is simple - Eat well. Sleep well. Live well :)
