Short Listen, But Interesting.

Laughably offensive to put $5 price on 6 minutes

This should be a free online article, "6 things any reasonable person already assumes about sleep." They've priced this at nearly $1 per minute for what is actually a ~2 minute phone call with a sleep expert, padded by a non-expert repeating what is said in the expert's static phone voice. I'll summarize all 6 points for you: everyone's sleep needs are different, do what works for you, and don't use alcohol as a sleep aid. Saved you 6 minutes and $4.99, you're welcome. Amazon/Audible should disallow this kind of price on short, low effort content, but if I'm understanding the branding correctly they maybe even produced it? They're trial ballooning if they can get away with charging this much for so little and such weak content. Please don't help them get away with it. P.S. I listened to it all before posting this review, but only as part of a "100%-off for members" deal they're maybe doing to fish for reviews, if it had been $0.25 it still would have been too high a price for this quality and quantity of information.

Myth One Was Worth Hearing; Rest Ech

I was glad somebody stuck up for people with different body rhythms. I've been a night person since infancy, and some people throw shade at those who sleep late (a natural result of going to bed late)....
The rest of the myths were not memorable. I lit up over the name Arianna Huffington but this seemed mediocre.

Thanks Audible and Ms. Huffington

I have not listened yet, just downloaded everything in this Sleep series. But I appreciate it so much. I already struggled with sleep before the pandemic. Now, I have more trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. And I wake up with debilitating anxiety each morning. I look forward to using these resources, and I thank you.

Glad it was short.

It still was a waste of time. Absolutely nothing redeeming in this book. Amazon should be ashamed to highlight this as a free book without declaring that its also not worth anything.

OK content; Poor choice of reader

If only Arianna herself had been the narrator. The one on the recording is probably a journalist, whose ennunciation leaves something to be desired. This might be all right for a free newscast, but, not a commercial "audiobook." This belongs on a radio magazine or podcast.

an average overview of sleep.

This is a summary of well-known sleep myths most people already know. It did not contain any new information or interesting factoids! I'd recommend this book only if you are a total sleep novice.

Interesting Information

This helped me prove my point that my midday nap isn't taking away from my night of sleep, just because it has that affect on my partner.

too short

I wanted this to do more than very briefly explain the six myths. I was hoping for more science and details. the whole thing felt like a preview for a bigger book.
