Great Books to Help You Find Great Sleep

We read a LOT on Sleep, more so than we do on Sales Techniques, although that is super important to a retail business too.  Our point to reading so much on sleep is to know how to help you find a better nights sleep.  We aren’t the ones making an effort to find that important sleep finally, you are, and when you realize that sleep is a missing factor in your life we want you to know that you aren’t wasting your time by visiting Sleep Well.  We want a knowledgeable staff available to help you with tips and help you find the right surface for your sleep.  

What are some essential books on Sleep that help us find the answer to “How to Sleep Better?”, here is a list and short description of books we have found super helpful in writing this blog, answering customer questions, and useful in our own lives as we battle our own sleep issues.

The Sleep Revolution

The Sleep Revolution by Arianna Huffington. An excellent read for anyone.  Ms. Huffington is a journalist at heart, and her style of writing is very easy to comprehend and follow.  She shares a lot of personal information from her years as an overachieving businesswoman with the outlook of “I will sleep when I die.”  Her story involves a very dreadful afternoon where she realized the Sleep was necessary and she documents her life change.  A lot of real personal details here that will help you understand how vital our sleep is.



Why We Sleep

Why We Sleep by Dr. Matthew Walker.  I originally discovered Dr. Walker on CBS News where he challenged the anchors to measure their sleep for a period.  They took his challenge, and he was horrified by their lack of sleep and how they nonchalantly just accepted their sleep deficiency.  His book is a college-level look at why Sleep is necessary.  It was a great informational read, on a whole different level of scientific fact than any other book I have read about sleep.  This is a book that I continuously cite for information on the different life facets that affect sleep.
