There is an epidemic of fatigue running rampant in our society. Every morning, hundreds of thousands of women wake up to find themselves exhausted, overwhelmed, and overstressed. Groggily turning off the alarm, they reach for coffee, soda, or some other promise of energy. They suffer through the day—irritable, on edge, forgetful, depressed, and craving sweets. And then, at night, they have trouble sleeping. Diet and exercise don’t seem to change things—if they even have the energy to follow these programs. So what on earth is going on?

I found it too unscientific and therefore simplistic. For example Herbals are recommended in dosages without explanation as to their purpose or application of proportions based on weight or age. Caution about other medications was occasional and descriptions of what to look for if they go wrong isn't included.

I appreciate the topic but not the amount of personal storying. It very shortly into the book seemed like witnessing a personal exposition rather than a research based strategy one could apply.

The writing and reading make it one of those books you can't leave until it's done. Then the book hangover as you don't want to let go of these characters, these words, for awhile, as they stay close to you.

Psychologist and Harvard Business School professor Francesca Gino has long studied the factors at play when judgment and decision-making collide with the results of our choices in real life. In Sidetracked, she explores inconsistent decisions played out in a wide range of circumstances from our roles as consumers and employees (what we buy, how we manage others) to the broader human choices that we make (who we date, how we cultivate friendships).

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The content is derailed by the overemphasis of reading detail for detail studies rather than emphasis on discussion of conclusions and imitations for practice.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She tried but the content was dry.

Did Sidetracked inspire you to do anything?

I listened but I wish the writer spent much more time on suggestions for application.

Any additional comments?
