Spoiler Free Review
My Sleepless Nights is a book that took me back to the days I had a super erratic sleep schedule! This book was way too relatable! This book totally lived up to its name and is totally worth reading!
My Sleepless nights takes us on a journey from a sleepless night to another through anxiety, failure and redemption of the author over the sleep that eluded him and his insights and learnings that he picked up over time.
This is a book that anyone who has had a few sleepless nights can relate to. This book talks about the author trying out different avenues to befriend sleep. And he didn’t give up, and all he did was persist, and keep trying different things until he found a few practises that stuck.
This is a book that brings most of the knowledge about sleep into a story and a 62-page book. It is just enough for anyone who wishes to understand about Sleep, to begin with.
The language was easy for anyone to read and the fluidity made it easier for me to keep a track of everything and immerse myself in the book
There were a few digressions from the flow though, most of them welcome, but a few just felt out of place and I felt those could be assimilated in the book a little better. But, in the end, it was a wholesome read
This book to me was more about hope and perseverance than about sleep. As someone who had really erratic sleep schedules and has found a balance today, this is a book I really could’ve read back then. This book would’ve given me hope that it was fine to fail trying to get my system right. There’s just something else to try out, ask for help if needed and things (mostly) should fall in place!
What I really liked about the book: I really liked the journey of Manohar, and his never-give-up attitude and transformation over time learning from every stage of his ordeal! I really loved how immense knowledge was condensed into such a short format which anyone can pick up and understand. This is a book with something of value on every page
What I didn’t like about the book: There were a few parts of the book that didn’t quite feel as though they were a part of the book. Being a short book I was immersed in it but then these parts got me out of the zone.
If you need to read about sleep, or lack of it while looking at those huge books about sleep (like Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker) only bring you anxiety, then this is the book for you.
If you’re someone who has already read books on Sleep, you might find the learnings a bit redundant. But, I’d still suggest you read it to be a part of Manohar’s story.
I Would Rate it:
More Power to you!
