-- 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

Eighteen months ago I visited a Marriott and there was an information card on the bedside table, "Arianna Huffington's 8 tips for a better sleep."
I got more from that ( and did not see this in the book) than her book. I am going to list so you can save your money.
1. Set a cool room temperature.
2. No electronic devices starting 30 minutes before bedtime
3. No caffeine after 2 p.m.
4. Pajamas, nightdresses and even special t-shirts send a sleep-friendly message to your body. If you wear it to the gym, don't wear it to bed.
5 Do some light stretching, deep breathing, yoga or meditation to help your body and your mind transition to sleep.
6. When reading a book, make it a physical book or an e-reader that does not emit blue light.
7. Ease yourself into sleep mode by drinking some caffeine-free tea.
8. Before you turn off the lights, write a list of what you are grateful for.
These have worked for me. And her book put me to sleep too.
Don’t buy this book if you’re looking for in-depth recommendations to improve sleep beyond basic sleep hygiene.
Literally she designated abo it 3 pages on sleep disorders and only briefly covers insomnia and apnea. All other sleep disorders get literally ONE PARAGRAPH.
This book is useless. Save your money. How did it become so famous? You’re better off using google. Honestly.

Sometimes it feels like name dropping using (too) many people from different fields and what they say about (their) sleep.
But having the personal story of someone like Arianna Huffington is always interesting. If you feel like you're not where you should be with your sleep, the book could help you get serious about sleep, but it will not give you the magic pill to sleep better.
