Book "Sleep - It Does a Family Good" by Dr. Archibald D.Hart

In the process of remaking our blog to a brand new domain, the archived post has been transferred to:

This is a Family & Relationship/Health book written by Dr. Archibald D.Hart and published in 2010 by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. and they were kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through their Tyndale Blog Network Program.

The book is divided in three parts. In the first one, named “Understanding your family’s need for sleep”, the author shows some impressive numbers, like 3 out of 4 people in USA having some kind of sleeping problem. He also mentions when talking about animals in general, that for some species, food and sleep are equally vital for survival. The second part of the book is named “Determining your family’s sleep problem”. Here Dr. Hart teaches how to evaluate sleep habits and how to analyze sleep disorders like apnea, RLS or sleepwalking. The third part is “Overcoming your family’s sleep deprivation”, where the author teaches how to help our children to sleep better, talk about marriage and sleep patterns and how to manage what he calls a “sleep bank”.

Overall the book is a “wake up call” (sorry for that, Dr. Hart!), showing how important a good night’s sleep is for our sanity in general and for our spirituality. After reading this book you will never again think that sleeping is a waste of time!

My rate is 4 stars.
Number of Pages: 217 (It took me approximately 7 hours to finish this book).
