Publisher's Summary

Proven solutions for a better night's sleep, from the "sleep guru" to elite athletes - rest for success in work, sports, and life

One-third of our lives - that's 3,000 hours a year - is spent trying to sleep. The time we spend in bed shapes our moods, motivation, alertness, decision-making skills, reaction time, creativity...in short, our ability to perform, whether at work, at home, or at play. But most of us have disturbed, restless nights, relying on over-stimulation from caffeine and sugar to drag us through the day. 

The old eight-hour rule just doesn't work, and it's time for a new approach. Endorsed by leading professionals in sports and business, Sleep shares a new program to be your personal best. 

Nick Littlehales is the leading sport sleep coach to some of the biggest names in the sporting world, including record-breaking cyclists for British Cycling and Team Sky, international soccer teams, NBA and NFL players, and Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Here, he shares his proven strategies for anyone to use. You'll learn how to map your unique sleep cycle, optimize your environment for recovery, and cope with the demands of this fast-paced, tech-driven world. 

Listen to Sleep and rest your way to a more confident, successful, and happier you.

PRO ATHLETE APPROVED

Great information with factual statements & research.
This information helped me stay calm and collected on nights that I can't get to sleep when I want to.
Stop stressing about getting your "8 hrs" every night.
This is a game changer for my Physical & Mental recovery.

Good book, too long

This book should have been an essay. The core concepts fit in a single chapter, the rest is filler content.

Changed how I view sleep

Would you listen to Sleep again? Why?

No because the information was articulated well and I will remember the tips

What other book might you compare Sleep to and why?

None I know of -- He is an expert in his field that worked with plenty of professional European and American athletes and he tells us how to sleep like athletes at home.

Great short listen

The book itself delivers an eye-opening concept of implementing sleep cycles as the guide to achieve better sleep. I enjoyed the fact that the author delved into the concept of why sleep cycles matter and debunked the common misconception of "quality" sleep.

I gave it 4 stars because I wished the book went further into creating a sleeping pack. Recommendations on building a custom sleeping pack didn't mention too much on the Why's, but rather glossed over a basic construction of it.

Overall a great and powerful book if readers/listeners can implement the concept into their own lives. It has definitely helped me.
