My favourite book of 2018 so far and one of my all time non-fiction favourites.

So much in there that just makes sense and explains a lot - wish that I had read this 30 years ago when I started my working life but without giving too much away I shall be making sure that I get my 7 to 8 hours sleep every night (if I do have to work late, I'll make sure that I don't have an early start the next day) , refrain from alcohol just before sleep, avoid looking at my phone in the evening (blue light which makes your brain think it's daytime), never drive when feeling tired, take exercise at least 2 hours before bed. I don't drink coffee late in the day (or at all) or take sleeping pills but if you do then you need to stop !

This is the must read of must reads - everyone needs to read it to take advantage of the best medicine around - sleep.

P.S. This took me longer to read than it would otherwise have done as I've now stopped staying up too late reading, no matter how addictive the book is. .....
