Description

JP Morgan’s Best Summer Read 2018

We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, and this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. In this book, Arianna Huffington boldly asserts that what is needed is nothing short of a sleep revolution. Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives.

Through a sweeping, scientifically rigorous and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, Arianna delves into the new golden age of sleep science that reveals the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health – from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s.

In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted not only compromises our health and our decision-making but also undermines our work lives, our personal lives and even our sex lives. She explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream. She takes on the dangerous sleeping pill industry and confronts all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can achieve better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power.

In today's fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important – and elusive – than ever. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help transform our lives, our communities and our world.

From Publishers Weekly

07 March 2016 – Prompted by a frightening personal experience with exhaustion, Huffington Post founder Huffington (Thrive) synthesizes a vast array of sleep research and provides tips on maximizing sleep time in an increasingly deprived global culture. Noting that this deprivation is often "glamorized and celebrated" among go-getters, Huffington cites figures indicating that sleep-deprived people are less productive at work. She also lists health risks, including heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and obesity, as well as cognitive impairment on par with alcohol consumption. Huffington goes on to explore the history of sleep, from the ancient world to the Industrial Revolution, when sleep began to suffer. For science, she discusses circadian rhythms, sleep stages, and sleep disorders and their treatments. Tips on achieving better sleep habits are presented for different age groups, with parents encouraged to rethink how they approach putting their children to bed, and students to place more emphasis on sleep for a higher GPA. Much advice is familiar put aside the electronic devices, exercise more, and meditate but some is less so, including suggestions on how to use the latest sleep-tracking devices and sleep-optimizing hotels. Huffington proves herself a powerful advocate for those suffering from what she identifies as the current "sleep crisis."
