The thick Greek accent of the narrator sacrifices clarity for an attempt at authenticity.

The book makes valid points, but the content could be condensed SIGNIFICANTLY into:

-Sleep is important for excellent performance in all life’s endeavors (Work, politics, athletics, sex, etc.)
-Sleep has been acknowledged throughput history to be important.
-Dreams are fascinating.
-Relying on medications to get sleep can be dangerous.
-Sleep deprivation is hazardous to your health.
-Technology exists to support sleep improvement.

If one has an interest in any of these areas, time would be better spent seeking out a publication which dives more deeply into that topic.

The rule is simple, easy to apply, and is broadly relevant. The book gives numerous examples of how the rule has been applied in people’s lives. I could also really relate to many of the experiences of the author. This is a must-read for those seeking to improve themselves!
