We rely on willpower to create change in our lives...but what if we're thinking about it all wrong? In Willpower Doesn't Work, Benjamin Hardy explains that willpower is nothing more than a dangerous fad - one that is bound to lead to failure. Instead of "white-knuckling" your way to change, you need to instead alter your surroundings to support your goals. This book shows you how.

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.

Great book about sleep, I found it extremely interesting, I knew about some things, but the author pushes things even further, explaining alternatives methods to get a better sleep.
it's not about the quantity, but about the quality.

Great audiobook, it gives you some great insights on social media, even though I would have cut down some parts, at times it seems that it's a book that narrates other's stories, I would have put stories of people tightly related to the author, but this is my opinion, overall great book.
