Publisher's Summary

One third of our lives is spent trying to sleep. Most us have disturbed, restless nights and rely on a cocktail of caffeine and sugar to drag us through the day. Yet the hours we spend in bed shape our moods, motivation and decision-making skills - defining our performance in work, at home and while keeping fit. We need a new approach to sleep.

In this groundbreaking audiobook, Nick Littlehales, elite sleep coach to some of the world's leading sports stars and teams, lays bare his strategies for us all to use. Discover how to map your own sleep cycle, what the optimum room temperature is, which bedding is best and why napping is actually good for you.

Listen to Sleep, learn from the best in sport, and kick-start a more confident, successful and happier you.

    Editor at Audible -- I like self-dev, Sci-Fi, and Fiction that leans a little bit, but not all the way, towards literary.

    Story
    "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.

    "Content good, narrator will put you to sleep"

    Content was insightful but narrator (who is also the author) completely monotone. should have hired a professional narrator. Stopped listening to after an hour
