by James B. Maas | 264 pages

Did you know that 65% of us will have trouble falling asleep tonight and be tired tomorrow? And sleep deprivation costs the United States $66 BILLION annually. That’s a lot of people. And a lot of money. Dr. James B. Maas is one of the world’s leading researchers and educators in the sleep world. He’s been at this for nearly FIVE decades and has taught more than 65,000 students and thousands of executives about the importance of sleep. Big Ideas we cover include the top six sleep thieves, the 4 rules of optimal sleep, and finding the time to get that extra hour we need.


“Unfortunately, most of us don’t value sleep because we’re blissfully ignorant of what can happen when we don’t get enough of it. Many people regard sleep as a luxury, a waste of time, and even a weakness of character. How often have you heard the macho expression, ‘What do you mean you need eight hours of sleep, you sloth? Look at me, all I need is six!’

It’s time we put an end to these myths and misplaced values. New research shows we must stop resisting rest. We now know that quality sleep is an absolute necessity, and the sad and alarming truth is that the majority of the world’s population doesn’t get enough of it. …

There are ways to get great sleep, even if you’ve been experiencing insomnia or have one or more of the other eighty-nine known sleep disorders. Do you want to be healthier, more energetic, creative, organized, efficient, and constantly expanding your potential? Do you want to be less stressed, happier, have a better relationship with yourself and others, and have a deeper sense of well-being? What if you could take a few small steps every day that would enable you to sleep better and eventually achieve all these things?

You can. In fact, it’s easy.

The solutions are at hand. You’re holding them. Read on and enjoy Sleep for Success!
