Publisher's Summary

When it comes to health, there is one criminally overlooked element: sleep. Good sleep helps you shed fat for good, stave off disease, stay productive, and improve virtually every function of your mind and body. That's what Shawn Stevenson learned when a degenerative bone disease crushed his dream of becoming a professional athlete. Like many of us, he gave up on his health and his body...until he decided there must be a better way. Through better sleep and optimized nutrition, Stevenson not only healed his body but also achieved fitness and business goals he never thought possible.
In Sleep Smarter, Stevenson shares easy tips and tricks to discover the best sleep and best health of your life. With his 14-Day Sleep Makeover, you'll learn how to create the ideal sleep sanctuary, how to hack sunlight to regulate your circadian rhythms, which clinically proven sleep nutrients and supplements you need, and stress-reduction exercises and fitness tips to keep you mentally and physically sharp.
Sleep Smarter is the ultimate guide to sleeping better, feeling refreshed, and achieving a healthier, happier life.

Some parts good, but be careful

There was some great content in here, but it was surrounded by far too much pseudoscience and throwing around individual studies' results as "truth." You know it's not trustworthy when you keep hearing things being thrown around as fact, such as with the word "causes," rather than "correlates with."

The author was really easy to listen to, however. The only other thing I got tired of is how often he said to check out more info in the bonus resource guide. I bet there's more in that "bonus" guide than this whole book (for better or worse)

Mostly Hype and Sales

There is quite a bit that I am taking from this book. One thing is that I need to do more research because there is a good deal in here that is fairly bogus and unthought through. Suggesting that people dim the lights in their house is actually dangerous. Most homes have too little light to be safe. And lighting candles is not going to help. He also cites some pretty questionable practices such as earthing, which has been significantly debunked by real science. There is lots of bonus material, all aimed at selling you something. I hate the format but I have take a few things from this book that I am using an that are helping me achieve better sleep.

Love this guy. Massive Value.

My husband has serious sleep problems which has had significant knock on effects with his overall health. I instinctively knew that pills were not treating the issue and would likely just add to his troubles, so i went searching for better answers. I found so much more than I had even hoped for in this book. The content and research behind it goes so far beyond what I expected of the topic. He gives actionable tips as well as an in depth education on how everything in our body works together. I took away so many nuggets even for myself (I thought I had this sleeping thing down- I was wrong). I'm now a serial listener to his podcast, The Model Health Show, and know I can turn on any episode and I'll learn something new. Couldn't recommend this book enough. Thank you Shawn for the work you do. You're not just inspiring change in me and my family, you're providing the road map and the tools.

Contradictory and full of bro science

I hardly think a house plant will significantly alter the oxygen to carbon dioxide ratio in the bed room. If that was your goal then asking your carbon dioxide producing partner to sleep in a separate room would have much greater impact. Thinking of something exciting before going to sleep to help you get out of bed in the morning seems contradictory. I remember being a child on Christmas eve, being excited about the next day certainly helps you to get up early with enthusiasm but hinders falling to sleep. There are much better books based on real science written by people clinically researching the subject which I found more informative.

Great book

I find this book to be packed with so many great ideas supported by research evidence, that would not only enhance one's sleep quality, but overall health in general. I highly recommended it.
