The "how to " information is particularly relevant to those of us who routinely tend to cut into our sleep time or subvert our body clocks just to meet the demands of daily life. ( I never realized how many accidents occur between midnight and six , for example, forty times the daytime mortality for truckers.) The author's LENS program of light, exercise, naps and socialization, offers hope for shift workers. There are also useful programs for athletes tyring to break records, students studying for exams, dieters, when all else has failed, and even terrorism prevention.
This is an amusing, easy to use, practical book. I would have liked an index and a few more scientific references but neither detracted from my enjoyment of reading it.
Dr.Edlund in very understandable language lays out a practical and sensible game plan for dealing with life's problems. His explanations of how the human body responds to time change and the variability of individuals, ie: larks vs. owls, is intriguing. How to harness time and use it to one's advantage by being cognizant of the effects of light vs. dark hours and manipulate these effects with light boxes can certainly improve the quality of one's life.
Dr. Edlund's expertise on diet, exercise, sleep, and pharmacology helps the reader adjust his lifestyle for a healthier existence. This book offers something positive for everyone. It serves as a user's guide for the body.
It's hard to pick a favorite section because so many apply. I discovered that my husband is an owl and that I'm not ... I now have practical things to help me if I want to stay up late with him. I particularly enjoyed the section on not only WHY to fit breakfast into my busy day, but HOW to do it. I followed the advice and feel better at work already! I'm going to recommend this book to family, friends, and coworkers! It can help eveyone and it's easy!
