The book breaks down as follows: Part One: The Seduction of Sleep (Trumping Sleep; Pure, unadulterated Sleep; Sleep is NOT a Dirty Word; Now Now, I'm Tired; Sleep and Grow Rich); Part Two: Sleeping for Profit (Strange Bedfellows; Staying Power, If You've Got it, Flaunt It; Sleeping With The Stars; You Are What You Sleep; Who's On Top?); Part Three: All You Need Is Sleep (Get A Room; Sleep Envy; Good in Bed; Sleep, Drugs, and Rock & Roll; Sleeping With The Enemy; How About A Quickie?; Sleep Habits of Highly Effective People; Sleeping Your Way To The Top).
The authors are very friendly and cover the topics efficiently and with humor. It makes for a pleasant read and definitely doesn't get bogged down by the statistics and facts. But it also rambles a bit and points are repeated several times throughout. The emphasis is definitely on the results/symptoms of sleep issues and how they affect every day performance. Not surprisingly, debunking a statement made by Donald Trump about being successful because he doesn't sleep is the rallying cry repeated throughout the book: few people can avoid sleep and succeed.
Because this is aimed at businessmen (or those in a business environment such as professional athletes, writers, etc.), that is the focus throughout - how to do your job better. Yes, the tips are applicable to say, e..g., a homemaker, college student, etc. But at heart, the title really does say it all - sleep effectively to be better at your job.
Rather than Self Help, I would categorize this as a business book, in the lines of being a better manager especially. Again, not intended for those with serious sleep issues but there is some great information and advice in here for the average person - from creating a clean bedroom free of distraction, clutter, noise, even partners sometimes - as well as other issues such mattresses, sex, stress, circadian rhythms, etc. etc. The friendly tone makes for a quick and easy read - just not on a Kindle before bedtime due to blue light leakage! Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
All around great book and top notch self help book.
