Writer and editor Arianna Huffington has made the most of the digital age, revolutionizing the online news business with The Huffington Post, which AOL bought for $315 million in February 2011. In recent years Huffington has turned her attention to the things that money can’t buy. First came On Becoming Fearless…in Love, Work, and Life in 2007, followed by Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder, released in 2014.
Having shown the way to courage and spirituality, Huffington now takes us on a tour of what she calls “our current sleep crisis.” Excessively focused on the work-hard, play-hard approach to life, we undervalue sleep and all the things it provides the foundation for: mental clarity, physical health, even sex. Huffington gives a thorough tour of current sleep science, investigates the sleeping-pill industry, and offers tips on how to sleep better.
