Want to squeeze your whole personal life into 1 night per week and call it success? Didn't think so.,

This review is from: Sleeping with Your Smartphone: How to Break the 24/7 Habit and Change the Way You Work (Kindle Edition)
The author is missing the point, the title is misleading. If you are looking to shift priorities and excel at work while still having happy, uninterrupted personal time on a daily basis, this book will not help you. This book is about giving people one 'night' (as in, you worked that day, but truly 'clock out' at 6pm) off per week, and it's something that must be done at the team or organizational level. One night per week is not enough for a real personal life, and, most workers who are sleeping with their smartphones don't have control of their team and/or organization. If you are an executive looking for a way to help your team to stop sleeping with their smart phones one day per week, this might be moderately useful for you. I found it to be highly disappointing and wish I could return a kindle book :(

You can return a Kindle book; I've done it dozens of times. Go to your Manage My Kindle LIbrary and click on options. Hit "Return For Refund." It's honestly that simple. None of us should keep inferior Kindle books any more than we should be stuck with inferior hardcover books. Just so you'll know.

I think your assessment is a bit harsh. People at BCG had no nights off a week, and found a way to have one night off a week. Given the always on culture of management consulting, in this real world this is a huge victory.
