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.

Most of the information in this book seems good, and matches my understanding from a wide variety of other sources. Unfortunately the author includes references to junk pseudo-science about "grounding", and very inaccurate / misleading information about the effects and amelioration of EMF ... those sections can safely be ignored. Still, the inclusion of such poorly researched material leaves me doubting the accuracy of the other sections. Cross referencing with other trustworthy sources is highly recommended.
