a lot of good principles - nothing earth-shattering.

my favorite line in the book...
"If you've ever thought about how relaxing it would be if you were in jail right now, you're suffering from overwork." yep.

This was interesting but really there was nothing new here. How to up your energy? Eat well. Sleep. Exercise. Reduce stress. Stimulate your brain - do puzzles, read, learn a new skill. Quit the time wasters, toxic relationships, and cluttered environments that are sapping your energy. There were a few things that appeared sloppy to me - she discusses phenylpropanolamine (PPA) and ephedra as stimulants when neither of these has been on the market for some time (and the book was published in 2008, ...more

This was, hands down, one of the best books I read throughout 2015. I got this book on www.paperbackswap.com and after I started reading it, I was so happy that I got it. Knowing the information contained within I would have paid way more credits than just the one I did. This book is worth hundreds of dollars in information that is useful regarding the increase of energy. And the tips really do work...in fact, amazingly well. Not all of them, of course, will be useful to you, some you may just n ...more

I picked this up after listening to The Ultimate Time Management System by the same author. Again, there is nothing groundbreaking here, but she does a good job combining and condensing a lot of the best advice into a workable system. By workable, I mean it has two very important features: it is both flexible and easy (or at least possible) to implement (which is not true of some other books on similar subjects).[return][return]She has chapters covering a broad array of topics, beginning with th ...more

The format is great -- especially for someone who IS fatigued. Quick little bites.[return][return]Unfortunately, there are at least a few pieces of outdated advice included, which makes me wary of the rest of the advice. Caffeinated beverages DO count in your daily water intake. Caffeine can INCREASE concentration. It happens that those two examples both involve caffeine, but they're two that I happen to know have been only recently "discovered."[return][return]Maybe those errors are the only on ...more

I got this book as an audio book to help pass all my commute time. The author read it, making it sound very cheesy. There were some good reminders in the book but nothing new or brilliant. (Get a good night of sleep, eat well, don't hold grudges, manage your time, etc.)

A tiring read. Look, your fatigue is some combination of (1) stress, (2) sleep deprivation, (3) drinking / drug use and (4) a carbohydrate, fat and sugar-laden diet. This hyper-expanded "Self" magazine article will not help you other than you can use it to block out the light as you nap. Get some rest, eat some greens and hand the cosmo back to the bartender.

Shelves: audio-book
This book was a collection of every cliche piece of advice you have ever heard. "Be a lifelong learner." "Have good sex." "Do what you love and the money will follow." "Stop and smell the roses." There wasn't even any sort of rhyme or reason to what topic the advice was on. I almost feel like I would've been better off buying a bag of fortune cookies...

I'm not sure what I expected from this book, i think i had thought it would be more focused on the medical side of exhaustion. Which is why it was so hard for me to finish, it ended up being a collection of dozens of little tips and suggestions on time management and even clutter control. Well written, but i'm not sure if it really helped.

This book was a collection of tips, very few of which were useful to me.

I listened to the audio CD version of this book. The reader was the author, and though she is no doubt na effective public speaker, her voice was not well suited to this format.
Patricia
This did not speak to me as much as Jill Thomas' "Revive," though people not familiar with Naturopathy might be more comfortable with it. Includes quizzes, but also a lot of product placement, which I ultimately found distracting.

gave you some very useful tips as well as the common sense ones too, sometimes it is good for us all just to stop and think about why we are so tired,

the first thing i stopped doing was over scheduling and I learned to say NO

Nothing I haven't read or heard before. I was also a little disappointed that the title suggests a 21-day program, but no such schedule is ever presented.

I can't believe how long it took me to read this book, especially when you consider its title. I actually really pulled some good ideas from it.
Pat aka Tygyr
There are a lot of good ideas in the book, but they haven't worked for me, or they are just not very practical for me right now.
