    Eye opening book on sleep

    A colleague loaned me this book when I wasn't performing up to potential. After reading it I bought myself a copy and gave two copies to friends. It changed my entire view of how sleep is part of our lives. Who knew we know so little about our own sleep? Some things in this book are common sense, but most are surprising, unexpected or even counter intuitive. A bit pedestrian at times, but that makes it all the more accessible. Anyone can and everyone should read a book like this on sleep.

    Well worth it.

    Dr. Maas has gotten it correct. He dispels the myths in society about sleep. I have no sleep disorders, and STILL found that using some of the simple rules of sleeping, napping, etc. to give me energy to burn.

    Change Your Life!

    Power Sleep is a dynamic and lucid book that I highly recommend to any individual who wants to live a more stress free life and maximize his or her daytime performance. As a first year college student, I did not realize the vitality of sleep in my life. Many college students do not realize how the amount of continuous nocturnal sleep they get affects other aspects of their life, including their ability to retain new information; however, Dr. Maas crystallizes these points. Dr. Maas¿ lucidity and practicality allow the reader to fully comprehend and conceptualize the information presented. For example, instead of Maas using dreary drawn-out language to describe the nightly sleep cycle, he incorporates friendly diagrams and brief explanations. Dr. Maas uses writing techniques which promote reader participation. For example, throughout the book, Maas asks several rhetorical questions, such as, ¿are you getting enough sleep?¿ These questions stimulate the reader to have a mental response, and therefore, interact with the book. Dr. Maas, fully achieved his purpose of informing the reader about the importance of sleep and ways of overcoming sleep deprivation. Read the book with intentions to change your life!

    Great Book!

    I really enjoyed the information contained in the book and have since actively implemented allot of it. It has helped me sleep much better and my health has improved because of it. It is remarkable how much disinformation is circulated in our culture about sleep. It is nice to see what science has found out and be able to apply it. Even better when it works! I think everyone should know the basics contained in this book.
