Co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post Arianna Huffington shows how our cultural dismissal of sleep as time wasted compromises our health and our decision-making and undermines our work lives, our personal lives-and even our sex lives in this New York Times bestseller. We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, with profound consequences to our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What we need is nothing short of a sleep revolution: only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives. In The Sleep Revolution, Arianna explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream. She takes on the sleeping pill industry, and all the ways our addiction to technology disrupts our sleep. She also offers a range of recommendations and tips from leading scientists on how we can get better and more restorative sleep, and harness its incredible power. The result is a sweeping, scientifically rigorous, and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, from the history of sleep, to the role of dreams in our lives, to the consequences of sleep deprivation, and the new golden age of sleep science that reveals the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health-from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer's. In today's fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually-harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night's sleep is more important-and elusive-than ever. The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help transform our lives, our communities, and our world.

"Arianna Huffington, cofounder of THE HUFFINGTON POST, presents a compelling case on the importance of sleep. Narrator Agapi Stassinopoulos provides each fact with clarity, speaking in a slight Greek accent. The urgent need to convince listeners to grasp the severity of the nation's sleep deprivation crisis is evident in Stassinopoulos's tone as the author explains the various sleep studies and scientific data on this topic. How we sleep, the significance of our dreams, technology's pull to keep us awake, and our addiction to the quick fix of sleeping pills are pertinent to the discussion of sleep's vital role in our lives. The material, both interesting and meaningful, is delivered as a plea for listeners to recognize that sleeping well is necessary for good health and a high-quality life.
