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
In overall the book is excellent; the only thing I really dislike was the reader. Non native english speaker and awful pronunciation. I found it very difficult to enjoy. Great book though!
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.

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

This book provides a lot of evidence to support the fact that sleep improves your life and lack of sleep makes your life worse but once it has convinced you of that the rest of the evidence—and there is a lot more—just seems to labour the point. Also, why didn't Arianna Huffington just narrate the book herself? Agapi Stassinopolous sounds exactly like her—I mean exactly. Overall I enjoyed the book and found it useful. I have recommended it to a few friends already.
This book is so powerful with its message on the importance of getting a good nights sleep. Plus it is backed up with so much research and facts. Although at times, I did feel that the number of anecdotes were a bit excessive in getting her point across. However, Ariana has motivated me to implement some of her sleeping techniques.
