Details: Product Description We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, writes Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post. And this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What is needed, she boldly asserts, is nothing short of a sleep revolution.  Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives. In her bestseller  Thrive,  Arianna wrote about our need to redefine success through well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving. Her discussion of the importance of sleep as a gateway to this more fulfilling way of living struck such a powerful chord that she realized the mystery and transformative power of sleep called for a fuller investigation. The result is a sweeping, scientifically rigorous, and deeply personal exploration of sleep from all angles, from the history of sleep, to the role of dreams in our lives, to the consequences of sleep deprivation, and the new golden age of sleep science that is revealing the vital role sleep plays in our every waking moment and every aspect of our health – from weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease to cancer and Alzheimer’s.   In  The Sleep Revolution, Arianna 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. In today's fast-paced, always-connected, perpetually-harried and sleep-deprived world, our need for a good night’s sleep is more important – and elusive -- than ever.   The Sleep Revolution both sounds the alarm on our worldwide sleep crisis and provides a detailed road map to the great sleep awakening that can help  transform our lives, our communities, and our world. Review “Arianna shows that sleep is not just vital for our health, but also critical to helping us achieve our goals. Sometimes we need to sleep in to lean in!” --Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and author of Lean In   "Arianna Huffington is one of our leading authorities on the life well-lived. In this passionate, deeply researched book, she reveals everything you need to know about the magic elixir of sleep: from how to get enough, to why it matters. I dare you to read this book and carry on depriving your body (and soul) of the nightly nourishment it so desperately needs." -- Susan Cain, co-founder of Quiet Revolution and author of Quiet    “In this very thorough and highly readable book, Arianna Huffington explains the history, nature, and science of the sleep problem: why so many people today do not sleep well.  And she gives us solutions in the form of evidence-based advice about what to do and what not to do to enjoy the restorative sleep we need. I recommend The Sleep Revolution highly.” -- Andrew Weil, MD, author of Fast Food, Good Food   “Arianna Huffington has written a book of profound importance. From time to time we'll all find sleep comes hard. For many, it is a constant struggle. Taking Arianna's wise advice to rebuild your relationship with sleep— to befriend rather than struggle with it— will transform your life, putting you back in touch with your more compassionate and intelligent self.” --Mark Williams, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford and Co-author of The Mindful Way Workbook   “The message of Arianna Huffington’s compelling book won me over: You can be your own Prince Charming. You can empower yourself with knowledge— knowledge in this book— to wake yourself up. And then, use that  knowledge to put yourself, every night, into
