Publisher's Summary

Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio

Sleep is central to every part of our lives, and a good night's sleep begins by putting aside the day's worries. But in today's technology-saturated world, saying goodnight to the day is harder than ever. Allow author Arianna Huffington (Thrive, The Sleep Revolution) to guide you to a peaceful night's slumber as she performs Goodnight Smartphone: a classic tale reborn for the modern age, when the hardest thing to say goodnight to is not the moon but our phones, our email, our social media, our always-on digital selves.

During a visit to Audible to speak about the benefits of sleep, Arianna joked about what a wonderful book Goodnight Moon is and how other childhood classics help transition kids from daytime to sleep time. She posited why there weren't such books for adults. "Goodnight cares of the day, goodnight worries about tomorrow, goodnight laptop!" she exclaimed. Soon after, Goodnight Smartphone was born. Listen as Arianna borrows from the traditions of children's bedtime stories to create this modern age adaptation for adults, and learn more about her daily sleep regimen in her introduction. Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio. Free until April 16, 2017.

Inspired by children's bedtime classics, this audiobook is a playful and relaxing guide to help you transition from the worries of a stressful day to a good night's sleep, and you can hear it only on Audible.

This was just painful

When I saw that someone had decided to revisit Goodnight Moon, I figured it was worth a look. This whole digital "board book" is painful and certainly not a book that I would share with the children in my life. It seems oddly preachy for what I would have assumed was a book intended for children. Seriously, even as a FREE book this is a waste of your time. This awkward stream of consciousness seems more like someone is projecting their own stresses onto paper. I almost regret the fact that it is in my Audible library now because I know I will never listen to it again.

Quick Ideas About Sleep

A short overview of some of the ideas presented in Huffington's recent book The Sleep Revolution with a twist of using the children's book GoodNight Moon as the format. I didn't think it was as awful as some reviews here on Audible made it seem. In fact, it was only 6 minutes long, offered a variety of helpful ideas about getting more sleep and it was free. You can't beat that for a deal. Glad I listened.

Too preachy

Meh, good night iPad is way better. This just comes off as preachy and self-righteous.

Don’t waste your time

Arianna Huffington has written something, but what it is remains unclear. She claims it is an ”update” of the classic story, Goodnight Moon, but it lacks all the charm of that book. It is not funny or satirical, but simply a waste of time. While only 6 minutes long, this audiobook is not worth 6 seconds of your time.

Seriously?

I know this was free from Audible, but I still had to download it and, even worse, I actually attempted to listen to it. ZERO stars if they were a possibility.

Strange

Narration was really bad but I can see what they were going for with this book. It's free so you can't complain too much, and it might make you tired at night. It's a short poem so it's easy to re-listen. Just don't expect too much.

Thought-provoking and apt!

Listened to this when I couldn't get to sleep.. Made me think about the constant stresses we are attached to from our daytime and how devices don't let us switch off at the end of the day. Well narrated.

I really don't get it

it's bizarre. Thank goodness it was free otherwise I would have been asking for a refund.
It is 90% talk about the author and the issues that we face in the modern world as we try and sleep, and then a tiny section on goodnight and that's it.
Weird.

What is the point of this?

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I expected a sort of lecture about the effects on health of sleep disfunction.
Instead I have received a weird good-night story for listeners of undefined age (its neither for children, nor for adults - its just weird).

Has FREE: Goodnight Smartphone put you off other books in this genre?

Which genre was that, once again?
