Publisher's Summary

When it comes to health, there is one criminally overlooked element: sleep. Good sleep helps you shed fat for good, stave off disease, stay productive, and improve virtually every function of your mind and body. That's what Shawn Stevenson learned when a degenerative bone disease crushed his dream of becoming a professional athlete. Like many of us, he gave up on his health and his body...until he decided there must be a better way. Through better sleep and optimized nutrition, Stevenson not only healed his body but also achieved fitness and business goals he never thought possible.

In Sleep Smarter, Stevenson shares easy tips and tricks to discover the best sleep and best health of your life. With his 14-Day Sleep Makeover, you'll learn how to create the ideal sleep sanctuary, how to hack sunlight to regulate your circadian rhythms, which clinically proven sleep nutrients and supplements you need, and stress-reduction exercises and fitness tips to keep you mentally and physically sharp.

Sleep Smarter is the ultimate guide to sleeping better, feeling refreshed, and achieving a healthier, happier life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

No good for insomina

I'm sure the book is good for people who have no idea on these things, but for people suffering from even mild insomina will have tried almost everything in the book already.

I found the chapters on basic topics to drag out. The book boils down to:

Eat right, set temp, don't use blue light before bed, have sex, meditate, get some sun. With a lot of 'independent' bro science, research and reports from others.

Just my opinion but no good if you actually suffer when trying to get to sleep. Very elitist.

Some good tips but mostly unfounded pseudoscience

Gives one obscure reference then spouts off pseudo scientific opinions presented as fact. Be very skeptical of anything he says. He does give some useful tips but you can find these elsewhere from more reliable sources.

paying for an ad

content: about a third of the book had sound sleep guides. the other third was complete garbage. the last third seemed to be advertising for other products trying to get you to buy stuff.

The author seems to want to talk about a wide range of things broadly and poorly. he also uses anecdotes rather than backing up claims with facts and peppers it all with really poor jokes.

2 stars for some of okay stuff scattered amongst all the garbage

Great book

I find this book to be packed with so many great ideas supported by research evidence, that would not only enhance one's sleep quality, but overall health in general. I highly recommended it.

SLEEPING SMARTER IS IMPORTANT

However I Cannot listen to this voice.

There really should be choice of voice.

This was my first Audible book; and it really put me off. I like the concept; but please make it a pleasure to listen to not a pain.

Having had a non-productive day yet

Honestly, one of the best books you can read to help your life. Although some things were already known (e.g. stay away from cafeine), understanding why has been really useful and helps change habits. Some - 90 minute sleep pattern planning - has been shattering. I only started applying this and doing at least 10 minutes exercise as soon as i wake up- and havent had an unproductive day yet. It's only my second week yet and you need to to tailor the advice to yourself, e.g. i fall asleep easy, but wake up in the middle of the night a lot - but the results have been crazy. I had 4.5 hour sleep (due to alcohol which he says one should avoid), 7.5 sleeps, 6 hour sleeps and another few of 7.5 hours - not a single day was fatigued or hard. Will be exploring some other things too - like grounding, which intuitively was so good, but had no idea it is actually scientifically proven.

Useful but could be condensed

I found the tips in the book useful but I ended up only listening to the first few minutes of each chapter towards the end as it waffled on alot.

Decent but theres better value out there

The book gives a number of decent strategies to improve sleep but could have gotten to the point faster and you could probably get the same information in a blog post. Some of the sources from alternative/complementary medicine journals was disappointing and seemed pseudoscientific.
