Editorial Reviews

Review

“Arianna shows that sleep is not just vital for our health, but also critical to helping us achieve our goals. Sometimes we need to sleep in to lean in!”
--Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and author of Lean In
 
"Arianna Huffington is one of our leading authorities on the life well-lived. In this passionate, deeply researched book, she reveals everything you need to know about the magic elixir of sleep: from how to get enough, to why it matters. I dare you to read this book and carry on depriving your body (and soul) of the nightly nourishment it so desperately needs."
-- Susan Cain, co-founder of Quiet Revolution and author of Quiet
 
 “In this very thorough and highly readable book, Arianna Huffington explains the history, nature, and science of the sleep problem: why so many people today do not sleep well.  And she gives us solutions in the form of evidence-based advice about what to do and what not to do to enjoy the restorative sleep we need. I recommend The Sleep Revolution highly.”
-- Andrew Weil, MD, author of Fast Food, Good Food
 
“Arianna Huffington has written a book of profound importance. From time to time we'll all find sleep comes hard. For many, it is a constant struggle. Taking Arianna's wise advice to rebuild your relationship with sleep— to befriend rather than struggle with it— will transform your life, putting you back in touch with your more compassionate and intelligent self.”
--Mark Williams, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford and Co-author of The Mindful Way Workbook
 
“The message of Arianna Huffington’s compelling book won me over: You can be your own Prince Charming. You can empower yourself with knowledge— knowledge in this book— to wake yourself up. And then, use that  knowledge to put yourself, every night, into a sleep that is healthy and restorative!”
--Sherry Turkle, Professor of the Social Studies of Science and Technology, MIT and author of Reclaiming Conversation
 
"Is inadequate sleep the new smoking?  Ms. Huffington tackles the issue of our deteriorating sleep hygiene and its serious health and performance consequences in a comprehensive, engaging, and accessible book.  A must read for everyone burning the candle on both ends.”
--Gene Block, Chancellor of UCLA, and Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences
 
“Science and experience proves it: the foundation of a happy, healthy, energetic, and productive life is a good night’s rest—yet for many of us, it’s hard to turn out the light and turn off our brains. The Sleep Revolution is an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to build the crucial habit of sleep.”
-- Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
 
“Propelled by cutting-edge science and brimming with wisdom and wit, The Sleep Revolution is the single best book about sleep in years. An extraordinary achievement.”
-- A. Roger Ekirch, author of At Day’s Close: Night in Times Past

“In her new book, The Sleep Revolution, Arianna Huffington draws on a remarkable breadth and depth of science, literature, spirituality, and story to remind us that sleep is not just a restorative, but a threshold to the resources of life that wait below our noise. By looking honestly into her own journey, Arianna uncovers important markers in the human journey through detailed research, knit together in a way that broadens our foundation. The chapters ‘Sleep Throughout History’ and ‘Dreams’ are, by themselves, an invaluable contribution to our modern consciousness. The Sleep Revolution unravels the tense threads we tangle ourselves in, giving us a chance to re-engage the forces that sustain us. This book won’t just help you sleep better; it will enliven you while you’re awake.”
 —Mark Nepo, author of Inside the Miracle, The One Life We’re Given, and The Book of Awakening
 
“Count on Arianna Huffington to write a book on sleep that kept me up at night. The Sleep Revolution is invaluable, interesting, and ultimately necessary for us all. It explains why we are so tired and how that has to change. Here is the science, history, and culture of the role that sleep plays in our lives —and the role that it should really play.” 
Atul Gawande, MD, MPH, Surgeon, Researcher, and Author of Being Mortal

“A lucid, compelling, and rational narrative on the importance of sleep to our mental, emotional and physical health.  In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna Huffington exposes the dangers of our modern-day attitude towards sleep and advocates for a renewed emphasis on the importance of sleep to our well-being.  It is nothing short of a call to arms for policy makers, CEOs, parents, educators, hospital administrators, and coaches to confront the fact that insufficient sleep is a modern-day health crisis.”
--Patrick Fuller, Associate Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School and Deaconess Medical Center

"This is one of those books that, if you don’t read, when you’re dead you’re really going to wish you had.  I never thought I would have needed a self-help book for sleep, but I did! Sleep is everything – that’s my takeaway, and so you better know how to do it."
-- Bill Maher

It's like someone Googled everything the Internet had to say about sleep and pasted it into a book with minimal editing.

There is no filtering in a sense of the quality of studies and science that are referred to in the book. A lot of the author's claimed problems with our modern daily lives that prevent us from sleeping will probably just make you end up more paranoid about losing sleep and as a result have a harder time sleeping.

I recommend instead - say goodnight to insomnia by gregg jacobs. An author experienced in the subject and providing higher quality content in less words. Helped change my sleeping habits significantly.

Sleep well.

As a practicing sleep specialist for the past 16 years I am often skeptical of new sleep books, especially from non-academic authors. This book was GREAT. I learned many new facts that I can share with my patients, friends and family. The tone of the book was both informative and conversational. Loaded with fascinating facts (and some scary ones) this book has appeal to readers of all ages, and in all stages of life. Huffington correctly defines our current Sleep Crisis in realistic, authentic stories and terms. She takes on the sleeping pill industry, and brings to light the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy (something I use in my practice daily). Speaking of light, she also identifies how artificial light (from our devices to our bedside table lamps) effects our entire sleep environment, and how we need to seek alternate technologies to allow us to function without destroying our circadian rhythms. One of my favorite sections was entitled " Our First Sleep Teachers". Here we see the exploration of how important it is to have a positive conversation between parents and children on the topic of sleep. This conversation, and a parents actions, frame the child's viewpoint of sleep for their future. I also like that she has paved the way for workplace wellness (years before this book came out) with nap rooms, and many other progressive programs for her employees. Finally, I give her great credit for creating a "Sleep Wish List" and actually giving a list of challenges we can all aspire toward. Arianna, thanks for the potential for some Sweet Dreams.

The big take away is that you can't cheat sleep. Your performance and your health will suffer when you get less sleep than your body requires. Most Americans are getting less sleep than they should and their work performance and quality of life suffers as a result.

What's interesting is how celebrities, athletes and top executives increasingly view good sleep as a competitive advantage in their field. I was surprised to learn, for example, that sports teams increasingly hire sleep coaches to ensure that athletes sleep well. Teams like the Seattle Seahawks. Tom Brady goes to bed at 8:30 so he can think clearly. Google's Eric Schmidt targets 8.5 hours of sleep every night.

I read the book in one afternoon. It is well researched and supported by hundreds of references. Considering how much time we spend sleeping, this books is a high ROI investment.

Update: I reread the book and followed some of the reference material. I wish there was greater discussion on the topic of accumulated sleep debt. How much sleep debt can I accumulate? What's the best way to catch up? How long can it take to catch up?

While I really do adore Arianna and anything to do with the Huffington Post etc. This book is just tossing away your hard earned money. I wish I hadn't wasted mine. Everything you find here you can GOOGLE it. Might as well save your $$

This is typical overachiever quasi-intellectual celebrity fluff book written solely to pad author resume and show off her polymath abilities master of all subjects. It follows time tested sandwich formula: start with base layer of fluff in the form of litany of evils stemming from lack of sleep mostly from personal anecdotes, google searches quoting various sleep experts, sprinkled with celebrity insights (first 165 pages), than add minimal filling in the middle of the sandwich consisting of the trite, well known sleep hygiene advice, and than top it off with second layer of the fluff in the form of testimonials of again celebrities, CEOs and sports athletes who have achieved unimaginable feats after getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Seriously there was not even one byte, not one bit of the information in whole 392 pages that was original idea, insight, or genuinely useful advice; throwing 50+ well known lifestyle changes that are supposed to be undertaken together to achieve sleep nirvana is absurd, as most regular people can stick with one new lifestyle change every 2 weeks. She is also flat out against sleeping medications, even though there are newer sleep medicines like orexin antagonists that have better effectiveness and less side effects than older benzos type medications. One example of author ignorance is that she did not even mentioned new research pointing to drop in environmental and internal body temperature as trigger for sleep rather than standard light and darkness cycle hypothesis. Just trying to read this quasi-scholarly treatise will put you to sleep in no time which is probably the best you will get in terms of sleep aid from this book (or you can stick it under mattress to raise your head 2 inches which will lessen the heartburn after realizing you wasted 15 bucks and few hours you could have spent sleeping)
