This book is hard to get through. The content is very interesting but I’m about half way through and I don’t think I can finish it because the tone through the whole book is that if you miss even one night of your full eight hours, the damage is done permanently and you may never recover. This is not a useful tone to take. I’m a nurse and I’ve worked night shift, which was the only job I could find when I graduated. For people who have kids that wake them up in the middle of the night, they’re not making bad choices. They don’t have an option. In my experience counseling patients in their health behaviors, the worst thing you can do is tell someone that something they can’t control is permanently damaging their health. They tend to throw their hands in the air and say why bother. I find myself taking that attitude as I’ve been reading this book and I’m having to remind myself to focus on what I can control instead of what’s in the past and done. Long story short, the information is interesting, but the presentation makes you feel like if you don’t do it perfectly, it’s hopeless. If that’s going to bother you like it bothers me, choose another book.
