Publisher's Summary

Society largely praises early risers, while maligning so-called "night owls." However, countless research studies have consistently shown that night owls are more successful and wealthier than early risers. 

The Morning Myth is intended to show that, indeed, night owls are generally more successful in life than early risers. The book is intended to restore self-confidence to night owls and help them to achieve more on their natural schedules, and also to inform employers on just how much productivity they're losing by forcing night owls to be at work bright and early, and advising them on how to schedule both early risers and night owls for maximum productivity to the employer and maximum happiness to the employee.

Helpful but repetitive

The author makes his point well but is extremely repetitive! This book could be easily condensed into something the length of a blog post

Long rant

I am a night owl, and this book hits some great insights on late sleepers. Most of the book seemed to be a long rant about how early risers are big bullies. Good story overall, but I would rather read a small section on a blog per say, read a small part of each chapter to get the full idea.

Couldn't finish just a pissed off guy

Could not finish the book after three hours of Rant about how the world is after people who sleep in.. I understand a third if the world sleeps in... this book could have been an article.. I will go back and finish but you can only take so much for so long.. Not getting a refund either... just way to long. Concept is good.

Twaddle

The title and subject looked interesting and as a Night Owl I looked forward to listening. However the content was highly repetitive and as the book went on, the so called scientific claims became increasingly ludicrous. I gave up and switched to another book.
