I much prefer books with a solid scientific backing which made this an excellent book for me. Practical, evidence-based advice and strategies to help me be a better parent.

Easy to understand and relate to. Much better than other financial books in that regard. I don't know how good the financial advice is because I'm terrible with money but it makes sense.

I don't normally like novellas but I love Sanderson. This is his usual high standard. It feels like a complete story. Narration is good. I would prefer more variation between voices but he has a nice tone.

Good Info If Somewhat Redundant

This book provides a lot of evidence to support the fact that sleep improves your life and lack of sleep makes your life worse but once it has convinced you of that the rest of the evidence—and there is a lot more—just seems to labour the point. Also, why didn't Arianna Huffington just narrate the book herself? Agapi Stassinopolous sounds exactly like her—I mean exactly. Overall I enjoyed the book and found it useful. I have recommended it to a few friends already.

Not quite what I was expecting. I only got it because Lin-Manuel Miranda was reading it and I was curious about how he would do. The text is very poetic. Not my favourite book but very glad I listened to it.

The story was just a little weak for me. I couldn't believe some key plot points.

I wanted to live this book but it is so confusing. It just cuts between the characters and there are so many it becomes distracting. I think it is a good story the structure want to my liking. Love the performance though. Great array of voices.

I struggled to finish this book. It jumps around from character to character so much that you don't feel wrapped up in the story. That said, it was brilliantly read. I will keep going with the series because I have heard great things but I hope it gets easier. I wouldn't say this book was well written compared to others I have read.

Tina Fey is a boss. Hilarious and humble. She gives great little life tips but doesn't take herself too seriously. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Tina Fey or enjoyed Amy Poehler's Yes Please.

Brilliant and hilarious.

So funny. A brilliant listen for anyone who needs life above or just a laugh. I'm a big Amy Poehler fan and this book has only strengthened that.
