I am a full time teacher, mother, wife, and friend. I, like most people, constantly feel TIRED. The book summary, Power of Rest, had me interested in any techniques I could practice to make my day feel a little less exhausting. I will say, I think this author is obviously very intelligent, knowledgable, and even offers some good suggestions (ie. less technology, more routine). The reason I gave this book a one star rating is because it just seemed to drag on and on and on. The content alone will make you sleepy out of boredom. For example, the author suggests "read before bed" as part of the nighttime routine. Then he gives page after page of scientific research, the time you can read, the types of books you could read, where you could sit to read, why you should read before bed as long as it `isn't too interesting', and why reading will help you sleep....on and on and on. Further, a few of the suggestions are just unrealistic for your average working person. I don't think I can practice sex during the day, self hypnosis, napping, and yoga poses with a class full of busy kindergarten students. This book could have really been condensed, sold for less, and made to be more effective for "busy" consumers. This book just wasn't a good fit for me. I suggest one search the internet for energy tips first, but not right before bed (keeping you awake too long).
