With her #1 New York Times bestseller Thrive, Huffington kicked off a global dialogue about redefining success through well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving. Thrive touched on the importance of sleep, and the topic struck such a powerful chord with audiences that she realized it deserved further exploration.
In The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night at a Time, The Huffington Post co-founder and editor-in-chief delves into the role that sleep plays-and how we can harness its power to improve every aspect of our lives, from our health and happiness to our job performance and relationships. The book is a scientifically rigorous and deeply personal look at sleep, from its history through the ages to the mystery of dreams to today's golden age of sleep science.
Arianna identifies the many ways that our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted undermines our health and decision-making and ravages our relationships, careers, and even sex lives. She explores the latest science, the dangerous sleeping pill industry, and the ways in which technology addiction disrupts our sleep. She also presents scientific recommendations and expert tips on how we can all achieve better, more restorative sleep.
In today's 24/7, always-connected world, our need for sleep and its benefits is only getting stronger. The Sleep Revolution sounds the alarm on the sleep crisis, and offers a road map for how we can take back our sleep-and in doing so, transform our personal lives, our careers, our communities, and our world.
