About the Book

Given the present, stress-inducing state of the economy and the world, there has never been a better time to provide a wake-up call on how to relax, get centered, get 8 hours of sleep and be happier and more successful. Recent research has shown us that when we get enough sleep, we are able to accomplish more in less time and with less stress and greater health. We don’t need a 26-hour day. With more efficient and effective sleep habits, in our book, 24 hours is more than adequate.


Our proposition is simple and compelling. Do you want to be healthier, more productive, 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 a deeper sense of well-being?  What if you could take a few small steps every day that would enable you to eventually achieve all these things?


You can.


In fact, it’s easy.


Sleep for Success!, a convincing, psychological approach to changing attitudes and behaviors, is written for anyone who wants to get a great night’s sleep, feel wide-awake and be a peak performer all day. It pertains to executives, students, parents, athletes, children and senior citizens.  If you’re human, chances are that you are at least somewhat sleep deprived.


Sleep for Success! can change your life – literally overnight.
