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.
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 Quick little bites.[return][return]Unfortunately, there are at least a few pieces of outdated advice included, which makes me wary of the rest of the advice.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

If you're feeling fatigued, this is the book for you! Laura Stack's tips for getting rid of energy bandits in your everyday life are incredibly worthwhile. This is the perfect book for anyone who goes through the day wishing they could take a nap!
After reading The Exhaustion Cure, you will be able to accomplish everything you set out to do each day, and still have zeal to spare!

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.
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.
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.

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.
Great suggestions and much needed reminders fill this book and make it a practical and interesting read.
Good book with solid information. I liked it and it is fairly practical. Very nice to listen to in the car.
Not a great audio book, but lots of helpful advice for revving up personal energy.
I didn't learn any information that was earth-shattering; I've heard it all before.
It told me everything I didn't want to hear. LOL!!!!
Tons of practical advice packed into one book.
