Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post and overall publishing wizard, has released a follow-up to her much lauded Thrive (WMB were big fans!).

While on a quest for a more balanced lifestyle, she discovered that “we are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis”, leading her take to action such as installing nap rooms in her offices and of course, writing this next book.

In The Sleep Revolution, she 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.

She explores all the latest science on what exactly is going on while we sleep and dream.  She takes on the dangerous 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.
