I've Never Slept Better

Would you consider the audio edition of Sleep to be better than the print version?

Nick Littlehales speaks very slowly, so as long as you speed up the playback to about 1.30 it's perfect. Otherwise I think it would be too slow, and you might fall asleep.


What did you like best about this story?

That it helped me sleep better immediately! I started doing some of the things Nick suggested and they work like a charm, plus they just make sense. Obvious as they are most everyone I know doesn't utilize these ideas.


What about Nick Littlehales’s performance did you like?

I liked that he spoke clearly and he obviously knew what he was talking about. His anecdotes were interesting as well. Like I said though, he speaks too slowly for me, so I sped it up to 1.3 and it was fine.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Nope, I liked listening to it in the morning after I woke up. It helped me get over the stress of a bad night's sleep, and plan and implement better nights going forward.


Any additional comments?

There is a lot of sleep books coming out these days, I think this is an excellent primer and probably one of the best you could by. It's not too long, and it gets to the point quickly with fast results if you follow the advice.

Some good tips, but descends into nonsense

There are some tips on here that will make a difference instantly. My sleep has hugely improved with the basic and common sense approach.

However, once you get past that, the book just feels like filler and a sales ad for Nick's special bed. The emphasis on sport is also a little grating and sometimes the name dropping is pointless.

Most importantly though, the narrator is dreadful. Is intonation makes no sense with sentences having random pauses halfway through them for no reason.
