There are good things and bad things things about this book. I cannot say i fell in love with the content as much as i did the cover. Good things or Bad things first?
- The cover is eye catching in the simple design, but bold red lettering.
- The chapters are short.
- Each chapter is split into three shorter sections; one on each of ‘Eat Move Sleep’.
- Roth uses his own life experiences as well as documented research.
- At the end of each chapter there are three ideas based on the chapter you might like to try, such as;
- > Every time you go to the store, start by loading up on fruits and vegetables with vibrant colours.
- > When disruptions threaten your regular schedules plan ahead to ensure you get a good night’s sleep.
- > As you make adjustments for better sleep, measure your progress. Note the time you get into bed and the time you wake up. Then rate your sleep quality on a 1-10 scale. (Chapter 5)
- At the end of the book there is a 30 day list of all the end of chapter suggestions, which you can tick off as you do them.
- If you are looking for suggestions on how to get started on making your life better then this may work for you at a much slower pace than in 30 days.
- Some of the research is quite old.
- It’s a little repetitive.
- I got bored and didn’t finish it – nearly!
- Roth is not telling us anything new and we are still not doing it! Would another book encourage us to get going?
- Not sure you would be able to complete 90 suggestions in 30 days, but picking one in each area for 30 days might be more beneficial.
It will get 3*** from me, so that’s not bad.
NB: website here, which is based on the book, but I haven’t tried it out yet.
