Sleep deprivation is a world-wide catastrophe - and overworked spiritual seekers are among the greatest sufferers. No wonder you can't meditate well, study, work well, or live up to your ideals - you are exhausted! This light-hearted, humorously illustrated book about a skill that deserves serious attention will lighten your heart, too. Great nappers include JFK, Winston Churchill, Thomas Edison, Napoleon Bonaparte, Johannes Brahms, Jim Lehrer, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, Martha Stewart, and many others that will surprise you as nappers 'come out' in our nappaphobic culture. Let Bill Anthony amuse and re-invigorate you.

1. The Art of Doing Nothing: Simple Ways to Make Time for Yourtself, by Veronique Vieene;
2. The Art of Napping, by William Anthony;
Ever since I have read Jeff Davidson's Breathing Space: Living & Working @ a Confortable Space in a Sped Up Society, many years ago, I have always valued - & benefitted tremendously from - the power of time-out. In a world where the future is hurtling at breakneck speed with hurricane-force changes, all of us must learn to do some time-outs!
Donald Mitchell's earlier review of the first book sums up very much my personal sentiments about the first book.
As for the second book, which is also equally lighthearted & humourously illustrated, I find myself amused & entertained by the author's introduction to a napaphobic culture. In a nutshell, these are his fun stuff:
- profiles in napping (stories of legendary nappers, including JFK, Winston Churchill, Thomas Edision, Napoleon Bonaparte, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan!);
- napping strategies (noice to advanced levels);
- nap management (getting the most from your naps);
- the future of napping;
In some way, this book reinforces the chapter on 'The Art of Napping' in the first book. While the first book is beautifully illustrated by the co-author's photographs, the second book has several funny & bone-tickling cartoons.
To sum up my review, I want to say that these two books (plus, Jeff Davidson's book)are excellent handy guides for the time-pressed, over-achieving generation.
